There are many questions that were presented to Freeman that I found thought provoking and very helpful to further understand his teachings.

“If they are to be civil servants, then they must be elected through a political process. If they are to impose taxes and make expenditures to foster “social” objectives, then political machinery must be set up to make the assess- ment of taxes and to determine through a political process the objectives to be served.”
