My previous post. Simply because it fits and too many people believe that a cabal of rulers can run our economy better than we ourselves can (emphasis mine):
A liberalism – no slaves, the right to say no – is built into [Adam] Smith’s argument at the outset. You decide, not the government or the community, not the experts or the masters. You know best how to “economize” in using your own capital. It is a reasonable assumption, but one that all the statists firmly deny. And they deny that anyway an adult should in equal dignity be assumed to choose wisely – even if on occasion that adult does not. But the problem with statism is that only by an imposed assumption of political and administrative perfection will the general will choose better than the individual does. And always the statist general will takes away the dignity of individual choice. The general is a nasty master.

The Road to Hell is littered with “good” intentions. Sorry, while Jeanne Deitsch believes she is “good”, the mask slips and betrays that adjective. Good does not mean ruling. Good does not mean taking choices away from others. Good does not mean stripping those not yourself or your GroupThink kinfolk of agency.
But this is who she revealed herself to be when she decided and told us that only CERTAIN Parents could have the ability to homeschool their children. In this, she also took away those children from their Parents.
That what totalitarian countries have and continue to do. But that quiet part is never mentioned.
And Dietsch and her ilk will never leave the rest of us alone.
