Ruled by poor logic II

Glenn Reynolds, writing in the Washington Examiner, (via Mark Perry of Carpe Diem), agrees with me about how poor logic leads to damaging policy.

Here’s a sample from the column:

If the government really wants to encourage people to achieve, and maintain, middle-class status, it should be encouraging things like self-discipline and the ability to defer gratification. But that’s not how politics works.

The whole thing is worth a read.
