  • Mood:

political snippet

No time to develop my thoughts on this, but I ran across an interesting quote and wanted to preserve it here:

"Government should exist to create systems that protect people from the things that we can’t control as individuals - the environment, natural disasters, unexpected health problems, the shifting winds and complexities of the economy."

(from here)

An actual analysis of this quote would have to divide it into sections, of course; the initial assertion, and then the list of items and whether they really should be there.
