the folly of central planning

as if Kelo-style takings weren't enough, KipEsquire points out the further absurdity of 'historic preservation' run amok. by making a blanket statement that 57 blocks and 197 additional properties are somehow collectively historic is simply assinine.
Kip’s Law: Every advocate of central planning always — always — envisions himself as the central planner.
this fits nicely into my theme around election time that people are perfectly willing to give away other people's rights, so long as their desires are acheived.
