No one is qualified to govern us considering how "govern" is defined today. The national, state, and local governments attempt to manage all aspects of our lives. In various ways, they undertake to "get the economy moving" and keep it "humming." On top of that, the national government maintains a global empire in the service of which the national-security apparatus presumes to manage foreign societies. Even if doing these things were morally proper, which it assuredly is not, writes Sheldon Richman, it would be beyond the capability of human beings.
