Government jobs as a path to wealth

Our friend Bob Smith writes here in praise of a Wilmington Star editorial about the very elevated pay levels of some state government officials, who earn much more than they would if they had to work in private industry doing the same work — distributing alcoholic beverages.

This is why many people like expansive government. It gives the lucky ones high paying, secure jobs paid for by taxpayers. As Murray Rothbard used to point out, the real class warfare isn’t between labor and capitalists, but between tax consumers and tax payers.
