In this short episode it's time to discuss the reasonable limits of government. The pandemic has vastly extended most governments prodigious overreach into every area of public and private existence.

What happens when governments increasingly assume more and more power? What happens when governments assume that all human problems can be solved by simply finding the right policy settings?

I explore some recent insights from economist Judith Sloan, social and historical commentator, Henry Ergas and finally thoughts about the reality of what 'the state' really is, from Friedrich Von Hayek.
