A vision of government ...

This came to me from a friend in a country where the politicians have managed to go from average wealth to mega wealth in just under 18 years while those they supposedly represent haven't managed to get out of the shanties they occupied under the previous regime.

It struck me, as I considered it, that it actually encapsulates the problem with all governments at present. AS they have taken over more and more "services" they actually deliver less and less while taking more and more from those they purport to serve. You don't have to look far to see what I mean, the wealth of the political classes continues to rise exponentially, while they preside over ever more 'welfare' dependency and even more diminishing opportunities for the very people they claim they are "redistributing" wealth to.

Orwell's Animal Farm, as I quoted a couple of days ago, sums it up. Some animals are more equal than others. Especially the political animals ...
