Back to Nature in Europe

As prosperity and freedom increased in Europe, politicians found it easier and far more popular to promise more to the people and expect less from them. Where the Christian leaders and old Socialists once called on the populace to suppress their lower instincts, the new leaders told them “There’s nothing wrong with you except that you’re not getting enough government money.” The people liked this, and the politicians liked it too, because it wasn’t their money. This was a win-win strategy for everybody except… everybody.
