This is a great read. A satire and a funny one at that, it goes a long way to explaining why the less government does the better off most people are. Take five minutes and enjoy, then think.
"In May 2008, James Dapper graduated from Yale College and moved to New York City with a mission: To guarantee the people of the city universal access to food. While writing his senior thesis, James had discovered that there was not a single agency in the whole city devoted to providing food to all of the city’s residents. Nobody was in control of the provision of food to New York City residents! Why, for all we knew, people could be starving in the streets right now, James realized."
