Reagan's Inauguration: 30 Years On

It is all too easy to mistake the Reagan/Thatcher era as some sort of Golden Age.  In truth, it was far from perfect — but we shouldn't make the perfect the enemy of the good. 

From time to time we've been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule.  That government by an elite group is superior to government for, by and of the people.  Well, if no-one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else?
