Your Name Is Maya? Shut Up.

Meet the Person Who Wants to Run Your Life — And Obama Wants to Help Her | Coyote Blog

If the notion — that a 20-something person who has apparently never held a job in the productive economy is  telling you she knows better what is good for you — is not absurd on its face, here are a few other reasons to distrust this plan.

I am sure there is a grain of truth in this — all of us likely have examples of where we made a decision to avoid short term pain that we regretted.  But it is hilarious to think that government officials will somehow do better.  As I have written before, the discount rate on pain applied by most legislators is infinite.  They will do any crazy ridiculous thing that has horrible implications five or ten years from now if they can just get through today.  Why else do government bodies run massive sustained deficits and give away unsustainable pension and retirement packages except that they take no consideration of future consequences.  And it is these people Maya wants to put in charge of teaching me about delay discounting?

Maya is a typical 20-something progtard moron who knows nothing whatsoever about people or the way they live their lives.  How could she?  She’s been swaddled in a progressive membrane all her life.  People pat her on her cute little head and tell her how great her ability to spout leftist group-think is.

Of course, we have something similar in the White House pretending to be the American King, with some success, so why not this Marie Antoinette “let them eat Obamacare” wannabe in charge of goading you into the cattle chute?

I once named a character in a novel I wrote “Maya.”  She wasn’t a clueless twit, however.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. With a nose like that, I’m not surprised she wants to stick it where it don’t belong.
    This “nudging” they’re talking about sounds a lot like “indoctrination”. In fact, it sounds like a program that should require the proponents of it to be “terminated with extreme prejudice”.
