"Since the beginning of the New Deal, American liberals have insisted that the government must do much more to help the poor, to increase economic security, to reduce inequality and mitigate the harshness of capitalism. Liberals have never answered, or even acknowledged, the corresponding question: What would be the Platonic ideal of a welfare state that was not cruelly and shamefully austere, that did not need a bigger budget or broader mandate? Never Enough explores the roots and consequences of liberals' aphasia about the welfare state's ultimate size, scope and cost, assessing what liberalism's lack of a limiting principle means for the policy choices confronting America in a new century. It concludes that the liberal project has jeopardized our experiment in self-government by encouraging Americans to regard their republic as a vehicle for taking advantage of their fellow citizens, rather than as a compact for respecting one another's rights and safeguarding future generations' opportunities."
