At its heart, whatever the occasional shortcomings, government exists solely for the purpose of advancing the public good. That's the mission. That's the entire design of the enterprise. Corruption, waste and falling short on delivery are inherently anathema to the core principles and existence of government.


:bigsilly:


Why doesn't this loathsome bi*ch go ask V. Putin - or Lenin, or Stalin, or Mao - what the purpose of government is?  She'll get a much different - and more realistic - answer.

And the failings of government aren't just occasional, they are frequent, and frequently deadly.  In fact, if she had only bothered to bone up on some liberal/progressive history from, say, the 1950s, she would have known just how evil and deadly the government can be, and how readily it stoops to those levels.

This idiot makes the fundamental error that all liberals/progressives make:  assuming that intention is all that matters and assuming that intent is always carried out and produces the intended results without any real significant negative side effects.

I wonder why Sally hasn't noticed the huge failure of the news reporters? They should be telling us the truth behind both corporate and government actions. But they have become so corrupt that they lie to us about both gov't and corporations. They are shills for the left. They cover up misdeeds from leftists in all walks of life  - there are a lot of green corporations that could use some investigation as well as dim politicians. And they lie about conservatives.

Of course, I do know why Sally hasn't noticed -  :whistle:

There's sadly little that can be done for people like Ms. Kohn. Everything she thinks she knows is wrong.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

Of course, you're right.

The only problem is that -- as of late -- the number of folks with Ms. Kohn's "problem" are increasing, and will soon overwhelm us...

No profits - no business. No business - no economy. Government will provide all. Let's see how that works for them.

The idea that businesses succeed by means of deception is an intractable quasi-religious belief among the Left. And it frequently comes from their own inabilities to provide something of value that anyone in their right mind would ever wish to buy. Companies must compete and provide superior value in order to flourish in the marketplace. But when government, and not the market chooses winners and losers, the only thing that matters is access to power and influence. That is not capitalism, but cronyism, and the result is corruption and an abandonment of the pursuit of excellence in favor of the pursuit of political favor.

Liberals think that government is the source of wealth, and that fairness is defined only by how evenly wealth is distributed, not by how well it is earned. They are no better than common thieves, yet falsely ennobled by a desire to redistribute the success of others whose achievements they could never themselves hope to duplicate.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.
