|Terri Gross's 2003 interview with Grover Norquist, in which Norquist compares the estate tax to the Holocaust (targeting the few) and calls government "tyrannical" and says Social Security is a "ponzi scheme." Norquist lauds anti-government campaigners, saying their work "harkens back to armed resistance to the central government" from the Revolutionary War.
Gross had recently interviewed Paul Krugman, who predicted the Bush tax cuts would "send us into a spiral of fiscal collapse. Krugman said that behind the Bush economic policies was a plan to deprive the government of revenue so that it's forced to dismantle most of the federal system that's been built up since the 1930s."
