With Bush pushing to incrementally free people from the fraud of Social Security, here are a couple of audio clips:
In this broadcast from December 1935, Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins is defending and explaining the recently passed Social Security Act, while journalist George E. Sokolsky is attacking the new legislation.You will want to reach back through time and shake Sokolsky's hand for his foresight, realism, and appreciation of the insidious moral, cultural, and political corruption a public pension system produces among those subjected to it.
At least listen to Sokolsky's opening remarks. Wow. Wow.
Update: Catprint comes at it from another angle, looking back at the much higher standards of only 70 years ago, from a time where people have been taught to use the word "rhetoric" in deprecation.
