Children's Books in Dumpsters: Washington's Madness Continues by Gary North

Gary North writes:


On February 10, workers in America's thrift stores tossed out every children's book that was printed prior to 1985. That is the law. A parent is not allowed to go into a thrift store and buy a book printed before 1985. Those books are now gone...

This seems insane, but it is the relentless logic of the State: "Nothing is permitted unless authorized by the State."

The Federal government has authorized abortion on demand. But, once a parent allows a child to be born, that parent is not be allowed to buy the child a pre-1985 book. Such books are too dangerous for children...

Americans have surrendered their liberties to Washington, one by one. The process is relentless. No insanity is too great for the bureaucrats. Yet the public is oblivious...

It stems from a simple assumption: "My neighbors are irresponsible. They must not be allowed to make voluntary exchanges, no matter how harmless." This belief leads to a principle of law: Nothing is allowed unless authorized by the State.
