"To my taste government should be limited to exterior defense, interior defense, and adjudication -- and you'll notice I didn't say anything about public roads, public schools."
RAH, in a 12/19/1985 newspaper interview

IIRC, he also tended to approve of the national park system....

Here's another statement by one of Heinlein's characters that I think is revealing about RAH:

" "Back" is for emergencies; the future is better than the past. Despite the crapehangers, romanticists, and anti-intellectuals, the world steadily grows better because the human mind, applying itself to environment, makes it better. With hands . . . with tools . . . with horse sense and science and engineering." D. B. Davis, speaking at the end of The Door into Summer.

There's a maxim that the young see the future, adults see the present and the old see the past - I wouldn't say this is untrue of Heinlein, although his first two stages seem to extend to later years than most.

Look at the extent his later works are concerned with rearranging the past to make a better present. Even Door into Summer was concerned about rearranging the past and present to make a better future...

The first two stories that happened by my mind while I was thinking about rearranging pasts and futures are "By His Bootstraps" and "The Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag". These are atypical, but they don't seem to fit into any simple schema.
