This is a piece by Richard M. Ebeling, the president of the Foundation for Economic Education. He points out that Americans are opting out of the welfare state through taking responsibility for their children's education, their own retirement, and health.
The paternalistic state was not created in a day. It has grown in size and legitimacy over a century, and it will not be gone in the blink of an eye. But it is being undermined by a real “people’s” movement, the spontaneous choices and actions of millions of Americans wanting greater self-responsibility and less dependency on the powers that be. They are moving the world away from the welfare state one person at a time. That is the strength and the power of liberty.
