“Science is more modest. It is aware of the limits of the human mind and of the human search for knowledge. It aims at tracing back every phenomenon to its cause. But it realizes that these endeavors must necessarily strike against insurmountable walls. There are phenomena which cannot be analyzed and traced back to other phenomena. They are the ultimate given.” Mises, Human Action
Political amnesia is real, the result of the ultimate given being reset with each major vote.
Until the pending crack up of the current system, there will be no repeal of socialized health care. Why?
Every search for knowledge ends with the ultimate given — which today includes the existence of socialized health care.
The past that existed before the vote is now hidden behind an insurmountable wall, so to speak. It is forgotten. In 10 years, most folks will not be able to conceive of a system where government does not run health care.
From this point forward, all actions will build upon our new ultimate given. Onward and upward — until the crack up becomes reality.
