The Cancerous Growth of Government is Squeezing the Life out of America

Fred Siegel's The Revolt Against the Masses

Fred Siegel’s The Revolt Against the Masses

“The 1970s surge in the government’s regulatory power, overshadowed by the great events of the era, went largely unnoted, but it was nonetheless profound. Before the 1960s government regulation was aimed at specific industries. But with the creation of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (1964), The Environmental Protection Agency (1970), The Consumer Products Safety Commission (1972), and the vast expansion of the Federal Trade Commission, government asserted its influence over the entire economy.”  ─The Revolt Against the Masses, copyright © 2013 by Fred Siegel, Encounter Books, Page 154.
