Prosperity's Predator. 386 pages, ISBN 9781451583991.

Government, in general, is under the operant impression that it should govern us. It shouldn't be. Governing us is our job; government should be simply the tool that we use to accomplish this task.

This book is comprised of over a hundred short notes on various problems with government, a few notes about possible solutions, interspersed with a few fanciful short stories.

A couple of the chapter titles to whet your fancy:

TOO BIG TO FAIL

THE VISION THING

DEATH BY DUCK

THE INTERNET

THE THREE DEADLY VIRTUES

Available on Amazon.com , soon to be in selected bookstores.


Excerpt

Way back in August 4, 1977, a third of a century ago, under the Carter administration, the government established the Department of Energy. The intent behind it was reasonable, and all agreed that the DOE would solve one of the nationís more pressing problems. The DOE presently has grown to over 16,000 full-time employees plus more than 90,000 contract employees, with a budget of more than 24 billion dollars per year.
We all remember why that particular department was started, donít we?
Thatís right; it was started for the purpose of decreasing our dependence on foreign oil.
How has that worked out for us?
