Professor Arn said the vast majority of the Power money and regulations happened after 1960. The government, which had stayed the same from 1787 to
about 1940, became both more centralized and bigger.
As government becomes a larger part of the economy and the electorate, the government can assign and vote to itself more and more workers and power.
By its shear size alone it can alter and influence society by its tastes and activities. The voterless regulatory state grows as if by gravity from
the growth of the elected state.
The central government is a distant government. Centralized government tries to make one law that applies to Eskimos, Desert Farmers, and Big City
Workers. Local government keeps the law appropriate and responsive.
We are only two generations past the system that the Founding Fathers, as in, everybody alive at the time of the American Revolution, had in mind.
Professor Arn said a lot more than that and he shows two profound graphs of government growth.
"Public policy is half of the country now"
