I have a very strong bias toward the idea that the government is horrible in everything it does. I am also fully aware of confirmation bias. We all have this bias. Confirmation bias is looking for things in the real world that prove my beliefs and tending to ignore the things that don’t work with my beliefs. Knowing this, it must be very possible that I am mistaken. Government must work somewhere. Where? When? Have I not been looking in the right places? Have I restricted myself to the only type of news that I want to hear?
I am writing this to challenge my own beliefs. I challenge anyone reading this to tell me something that the federal government does well. I am open to hearing anecdotal evidence, personal theories, or other news articles.
I have searched my life for where I have got government help and there are a few things that I found where government did help me. Those things done by past governments have created equilibrium. The Constitution, bill of rights and other permanent declarations.
I challenge anyone to give me an example of something that the government does well. Is there anywhere in government where there are only good outcomes, rather than corruption and inefficiency?
The government makes epic decisions; banks that make bad decisions get bailed out; They invade countries under false pretenses and kill hundreds of thousands of people; they spends trillions more than they take in? When we double the amount of spending on “education” yet there are no observable gains made in math, writing and reading skills? If this is not chaos, what is?
Good Government, Bad Government
