This brand new video documentary from a liberty loving non-profit in the USA will make you think about the way we have arrived at subservience to unelected bureaucrats who think they know better than us and reward themselves accordingly with large salaries and massive pensions.
From economics to housing to health, “Trust Us” reveals the strange origins and tragic consequences of expert rule.
“Trust Us” traces the rise of American technocracy: Governance by bureaucratic experts. It’s a fascinating insight into how the US government went from being a servant to a master.
Beginning in the early 20th century, “Trust Us” reveals how US leaders funneled power to unelected experts, who were convinced they could engineer solutions to all our nation’s problems. Not only did these experts fail to solve those problems, but in example after example, they caused irreversible damage to the country. This is a true story of bureaucratic arrogance gone wild. What started as a few federal agencies has become today’s massive administrative state, a “fourth branch” of government that influences every aspect of American daily lives.
Featuring interviews with Don Boudreaux, Martin Gurri, Roger Koppl, Kevin Portteus, Joseph Postell, Amity Shlaes, and Steve Simpson.
