What is Government For?


People often wonder. Here's the sordid answer.

Tidying up after government

It may be the biggest business opportunity of all time.
Boneyards, as the latest Zero Government Blog, shows why.

Does Government Ever Work?

Strictly, it wouldn't matter even if it did, for government is a morally repulsive institution.
However, today's ZGBlog suggests that not even the military, its pride and joy, is functional. Enjoy.

A Winter of Black Discontent?

The demontrators have got it half wrong. But they also have it half right; and today's ZGBlog traces the root causes of racial discord in America. When those are removed, everyone will be able to breathe.

Two Questions to Pose

Today's Zero Government Blog is very short, and you may like to send its URL to your email list and to bookmark it for possible future use; it's TinyURL.com/ZGBlog/14A061.htm
It poses a couple of important questions, to neither of which I can find an answer. It may help start a statist friend on the journey to rationality.
If you can improve it, please email me to say how.

Fill her up


One of the few bits of good news this year has been that gas prices fell off a cliff. Today's ZGBlog explores why that happened, and finds it may be the wrong question; better, ask why they were so high for so long. Enjoy Why So Low?

A Squirrel's Tale

All the current fuss in Ferguson might suggest that police focus on shooting young black men.
Not at all; they are equal-opportunity killers, as today's Zero Government Blog relates - in the words of a little bushy-tail, so intelligent as not to understand the significance of a government costume. His story is almost completely true.

Baiting the Bear

It's almost unbelievable, what the imperial US has been doing the last several months to Russia. It's almost as if the Obama gang wants another war, at least a cold one.
Today's ZGBlog suggests that perhaps they do, and that such is perfectly consistent with government.

The Masses are Revolting

- and it's about time. But many of them need a little guidance, which we're well placed to provide. Enjoy today's ZGBlog: Incoherent Anger.

Buchanan's Religion

A while back in Cults, the Zero Government Blog suggested that it's inconsistent, at the same time to promote a rational world view while adhering to a non-rational belief system.
Today's Edition shows an example of how that works out in practice, as Pat. Enjoy.
