A little Milton seems apposite right now…

“The fantasy that the democratic act of centralizing and concentrating decision-making authority and responsibility in the state ensures that decisions are made better and more wisely and more ‘scientifically’ and in ways likely to promote greater human flourishing is the most absurd and dangerous – yet widespread – fantasy that afflicts modern humanity.  It is a fantasy to which academics cling with special and remarkably steadfast faith.”
