Good Intentions

Acadêmicos de Milton Friedman

May I introduce myself
I’m MC Professor Will
I’m not here to reinvent the wheel
But with a bit of patience we might understand a few
Of causes and effects and what’s the deal
About poverty and economic failure
When policies based on good intentions gets real

The minimum wage intends to provide
Better pay for the workers, so they can live decent lives
But when the joint in the corner is forbidden to hire
For less than a minimum, they have to deprive
The young and the unexperienced from the opportunity to learn and acquire
The skills that are required
Further up, when they try to make in in life, what did they find?
A bunch of shut doors with the unions sign
A bunch of shut doors with the unions sign

Cause the truth is that any given law, when it’s signed
Is actually about the prohibitions implied
Or as the Ambassadors, the Acadêmicos de Milton Friedman would say

Boa intenção, o inferno já tá cheio, irmão
Não vai colar
Boa intenção, o inferno já tá cheio, irmão
O inferno já tá cheio, irmão
Pra cima desse rasta não!

The right to education is a beautiful thing
The UN’s shiny diamond ring
But schools won’t pop up – you gotta collect
And with all that dough, there’s more room for neglect
As bureaucracy gets that big government check
The machine starts running and the cash falls fast
They feast and they spend it and the teachers resent it
As schools get bigger and their finances linger
Not to mention the loans for higher education
Guaranteed by the fed to boost the credit expansion
Education inflation is what you get
When you try to move people like pawns in chess
Regulation kicks in, mining competition
As the broke and young struggle for tuition

But none of it matters, it’s never been better
The men in suit will tell you when they show the score
With the increasing numbers to make you come back for more

É isso aí meu irmão!

Boa intenção, o inferno já tá cheio, irmão
Não vai colar
Boa intenção, o inferno já tá cheio, irmão
O inferno já tá cheio, irmão
Pra cima desse rasta não!

If we wish to be compassionate with our fellow man
We must learn to engage in dispassionate analysis
In other words, thinking with our hearts, rather than our brains
Is a surefire method to hurt those whom we wish to help

E aí vacilão!
Tu acha que tu vai ficar organizando o mundo de cima pra baixo?
Mas tu não vai não!

Good intentions, the road of hell is paved for
Good intentions, the road of hell paved for
Good intentions yeah!
Good intentions
