Radical Cass Sunstein on Verge of Great Power

Left-wing legal thinker Cass Sunstein seems poised to become President Obama‘s regulatory czar, that is, administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the Office of Budget and Management.

Glenn Beck referred to Sunstein as “the most powerful government employee you have never heard of,” on the Wednesday edition of his TV show.

Sunstein, co-author of Nudge, a paternalistic book in which he argued that people need to be encouraged by the government to make the right choices in their personal lives, is a poor choice for this key position in the Obama administration because he holds radical views. As regulatory czar, he would be in a position to inject his radicalism into the U.S. regulatory framework.

How is he radical?

Sunstein believes your money doesn’t really belong to you because the government laid the foundation for your success. He thinks Internet censorship is a good idea and that animals should be allowed to sue people.

Sunstein believes that the names of carbon dioxide emitters should be compiled as part of a “greenhouse gas inventory” and publicized to shame those emitters into changing their behavior. He also disparages Americans’ support for property rights and freedom of contract which he calls an “incoherent” form “of so-called individualism.”
