The Foundational Lie Of The Conservative Movement

Tis folly to believe that the government can do no good at all.

I’ve known and met conservatives who say that the government adds nothing to the economy. I’ve encountered them on social media, and I read about them in the news. I see the talking heads on YouTube spouting their proverbial line that governments add nothing to the economy, and they say that we should limit the size of the government to the greatest extent possible.
