Should the US government increase regulation of education or simply leave well enough alone?

David Halpern seems to think government needs to do something and Katherine Mangu-Ward seems to think we could do without nearly as much government as we have now.  They discuss the topic for 51 minutes.  Mangu-Ward makes a good case that the myth of the benevolent wise government bureaucrat is just that.

Fareed Zakaria advocates for more government and more immigration

Fareed Zakaria advocates for more taxes (VAT or sales tax) as well as more government investment.  Apparently Europe has been doing things right for so many years so he believes the US should copy that flourishing model.  He fails to mention how excessive government spending on military imperialism has impoverished the US economy.
I hope that come 2012 that more candidates will support the platform of the Free Soil party.
