Political Success and Governmental Failure
It's Tuesday, so another letter from the Ohio Farmer: Political Success and Governmental Failure
starts with Lincoln's thought that without public sentiment nothing can succeed, to this: "Seven score and 13 years after those debates we are now engaged in a great political contest over whether the welfare state established by the New Deal and built up continuously since 1932 can long endure. Its growth over the past eight decades and the financial crisis confronting it today suggest the need to qualify Lincoln's rule: Public sentiment may ensure political success for a policy, but it does not rule out governmental failure. Indeed, a policy can be a governmental failure precisely because it is a political success."
