De Blasio Demands, Show Me Your Hands

“Brothers and sisters, there’s plenty of money in the world. There’s plenty of money in this city. It’s just in the wrong hands.”

Those are the words of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on the occasion of introducing his plan for single-payer, government-run health care at the municipal level.

de Blasio’s use of the phrase "brothers and sisters" is instructive as it is religious.

As Chesterton observed, when people lose their faith in the Almighty, they don't believe in nothing. They believe in anything.

Rather than an omniscient God, more place their faith in an omnipotent state and bishops of big government like de Blasio.

Being a Socialist in the 20th century meant never having to account for the body count. Today, it means de Blasio’s political self interest is nobler than your economic self interest.

Understanding that when he says money is in the “wrong hands,” he may well be talking about yours.
