Stirring Up Apathy

“Big government depends on going around the country stirring up apathy – creating the sense that problems are so big, so complex, so intractable that even attempting to think about them for yourself gives you such a splitting headache it’s easier to shrug and accept as given the proposition that only government can deal with them.”

~ Mark Steyn, After America: Get Ready for Armageddon (Ch. 2, pg. 51)
