Some thoughts seem to whisper from somewhere behind you, some seem to bubble up within, some are like those magic eye puzzles, and some thoughts seem to clang. This seems like a
clang.
It's been said that Hurricane Katrina has confirmed pretty much everybody in his pre-existing political beliefs. I can't say the record gives me any reason to change mine. But if I can't have a libertarian paradise where state power defers to social power, or use recent events to urge others to the wisdom of such a state of affairs, I'm willing to propose a second-best for America: replace the three branches of republican government with permanent joint rule by Wal-Mart and the Salvation Army. Go on, tell me you could honestly do worse.
I don't understand why people seem to think that the solution to government failure is buying more government. Lead, follow or get out of the way. Government does none of those things well outside of a very narrow range of activities.
