Dr. Sowell (as usual) was at the money in exposing the problem. Unfortunately, seems, it is the result of democracy itself: our politicians prefer demagogic destruction just because of (1) it always easier to destroy than to create and (2) more people (usually temporary) benefit from their "solution" than the people who object it. Fortunately for us, our founding fathers knew the kind of scoundrels to deal with and created a system which decays very slow.

Which is why our founders detested a Democracy. They viewed Democracy as "Mob Rules". They created a Republic which has a foundational set of rules that limits what government can do and and established rights "ordained by God" that could not be infringed. Of course, some leftist long ago decided we were a Democracy and that has been pounded into our collective brains for decades. Now even History and Social Studies teachers think we are a Democracy. That opens the door for Leftists to use mob rules to decide what we can and can't do.
