Subsidy kills - and not only because the money for subsidy is coercively extracted.
I have directly observed the inevitable consequences of increased funding in schools, colleges, medicine, health services and science...
Always there is an increase in
1. Managerialism - bureaucracy at at the cost of autonomy, process at the cost of results, obedience at the cost of agency.
2. Political correctness/ New Leftism - funding always has socio-political strings, funding is always ultimately For those strings.
3. Totalitarianism - by means of managerialism and with the excuse of the New Left/ PC agenda (socialism, feminism, antiracism, diversity, the sexual revolution...) - incremental increase in total surveillance and micro-control.
Evil via funding is the major characteristic that distinguishes the New Left from the Old (communist) Left - which worked by negative, punishing, sanctions of physical violence.
The reason for the Old to New transition was not an increase in kindness, but the increased effectiveness of destruction and neutralisation of opposition that the New Left brings.
The New Left cannot be 'fought', nor organised-against - rather we must opt-out from it.
And that is where courage is required: the simple courage to say No: (apparently) alone.
