Radical distrust of government? Shocking! Last night on PBS New Hour they interviewed Yuval Levin on his new book covering the public debates between Paine and Burke, and on the great left, right divide.
American’s distrust of government is older than the American government. I think Republican’s trust government more when Republicans control the government and Democrats trust it more when Democrats control the government, and all Americans when the United States is at war. Perhaps that explains the peaceful, Christian nation’s tendency to war.
