After all, we took a bite of the wasteful Keynes spending plan, devised by a Britisher, although Britain spurned it. And all politicians like to promote “security” because it makes them appear to be doing something for the common man and thus covers a multitude of sins—including currently the insecurity of rising price levels which is destroying whatever security citizens enemy ships in the face of air ana anti-aircraft opposition."
