ABOUT THE REGIME’S spin on the IRS scandal is that it’s probably true. It probably was some young punks, drunk on power, deciding to strike a blow for the Revolution, who decided it would be appropriate and/or fun to set in motion audits of patriot groups for the sole reason that they were patriot groups. And I can easily imagine that senior figures in the regime would like to strangle the young idiots for the trouble they’ve caused.
That doesn’t change the fact that it’s collectivism on display and we need to take the lesson from it that you can’t trust collectivists on anything and they need to be kept as far away from the levers of power as can be managed. And not just the young punks, but the old silverbacks and gray-muzzled hyenas, too.
