Zakaria: "Stop Being Afraid Of More Government. It's Exactly What We Need"

   Contemporary conservatives seem to tend to think: More government is a threat to freedom...and government can't do anything right anyway. Whoever the other side is (progressives, liberals, whatever) seem to tend to think: Government can do just about anything...and more of it is no threat to freedom. I'm stuck in the middle, and am of late inclined to think: Government can do all sorts of things better than the private sector...but very often there are bad unintended consequences...and more government is likely to be a threat to freedom.
   But that's just an kind of inclination. I'm not all that sure about any of it.
