"I Would Prefer a Minister For Silly Walks"

Um post de Johan Norberg (com algumas adições minhas...)

Do you want a definition of irony? Yesterday, Timbro published the 60th anniversary translation of "The Road To Serfdom", where Hayek warns us about the blind faith in constructivism and the centrally planned society. At the same time, Sweden's prime minister appointed his first "samhällsbyggnadsminister", Mona Sahlin. I have a hard time explaining this new ministerial post in English, but here are some suggestions:

Minister for social structure
Minister for societal structure
Minister for societal restructuring
Minister for societal planning
Minister for social planning
Minister for the building of society
Minister for construction of society
Minister for reconstruction of society

"A society that does not recognize that each individual has values of his own which he is entitled to follow can have no respect for the dignity of the individual and cannot really know freedom."
