    "Kevin Drum quite reasonably allows that "(government) revenue maximization isn't our only social goal." He's right, of course. Job creation's another big one, but we've covered that. So is eliminating poverty, educating our children, ensuring a secure retirement, and making sure nobody dies from a lack of food, shelter, or medical care.

    "People have other goals for our society, too, of course. They range from inspiring ones like freedom, liberty, and self-reliance, to unspoken and less admirable ones like the right to crush your competitors by any means necessary, the right to deceive consumers out of their hard-earned savings, or the right to indulge in gross overconsumption and meaningless excess at others' expense."


    This a good description of our human (sin) nature. Evil and good.

    Say again? No one exhibits these characteristics? Not even one single Baptist?
