"If at age 20 you are a conservative then you have no heart. If at age 30 you are a liberal then you have no brains."
Sir Winston Churchill

Obama obviously knows very little about economics, specifically that "Society stagnates when independent productive achievers begin to be socially demonized and even punished for their accomplishments." This dilemma fogs Obama's reality. To him, accepting this truth is a "false choice", his answer to things he doesn't understand. And by the way... where is John Galt?

The technology we have created to control massive amounts of data on individuals may prove to be the greatest monster of all time.  It is a vessel wherein the most enticing, addictive and intoxicating temptations of man may be stored and then be drunk.  This is something greater than sex or money.  It is the lust for power and dominion over our fellow men and it comes with all the false justifications that is salve for the conscience of humanity.  National security, economic freedom and equality, human rights and social justice all come in counterfeit guise to convince and beguile the user and the used that what is done is for the best. 

This is the minefield that man has had to negotiate through out history.
The American solution was a map through this wilderness of human failings within a house built with virtue as its foundation, the law as the walls and roof and a rigorous education as the doorway to the sanctuary provided within.

This house is our Constitution and Declaration of Independence which when adhered to with wisdom and courage has made us exceptional among the nations of the earth. 

This present crisis illustrated by the cascade of scandals that have become daily revelations is our worst crisis and the greatest test as to whether this house…our house…can remain standing and in good repair. 

We are both the lords of the manor on which this great house stands and its servants and housekeepers.  We are its owners only in an incidental sense.  In reality we are more the masons, carpenters and roofers with the obligation to keep it in as good condition as we found it or better…but never worse.  We are also the educators of all who live in this house so that when vacate it they are ready, willing and prepared to assume its proper upkeep. 

Our secret has always been to do what ever needs to be done however difficult or painful to our self image or our pride to make sure the house stands in splendor awaiting its next inhabitants.
Nothing built by man is permanent.  Too much of a good thing has somehow throughout history has always made us wish for more than we can handle as we over step our boundaries, overlook our limitations and shake our fist at God.
