Bye Bye Miss American Pie

National Post has this quote in an excerpt from Mark Steyn’s book “After America” where he explains how bureaucrats now run everything…

“participation is the essence of citizenship”

This in reference to inspectors in Pennsylvania banning homemade pies at a church bake sale.

Stein says that a citizen who submits to a state pie regime is a subject, not a citizen.

Sound vaguely familiar?
