Future of Limited Government

According to this article by Milton Friedman free-marketeers have won the battle of ideas, but politicians still seem to be lagging behind.

Update: I think I agree with Arnold Kling's analysis:

"My sense is that the vast majority of citizens are indifferent, confused, or content regarding the expansion of the welfare state. They neither understand the economic argument for the benefits of a smaller profile for government nor appreciate the philosophical argument for freedom and responsibility."
