    Why ‘Destroying The Civil Service’ Would Be Good For America

    Anne Applebaum, author of the fantastic “Iron Curtain” and other histories, took to the pages of the Washington Post late last week to defend the “neutral” civil service as essential to American liberal democracy. She credits the so-called merit system for producing efficient and apolitical administration of government, and warns that dismantling it will result in the kind of corrupt governance that abounds in places like Venezuela and Turkey.

    The exchange, which took place between then-Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and “never let a crisis go to waste” Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who had been President Obama’s chief of staff, shows the two men trading suggestions on how to use the tragedy that claimed the lives of 26 Sandy Hook Elementary School students and teachers to “tap peoples emotion [sic]” and further their goal of stricter gun control.
