Government v.2.0

Kevin Baker (of The Smallest Minority) brings to us an essay of enormous import.  In part:

The Information Age is here. Government v.2.0 is massive, sclerotic, invasive, inept, corrupt, incompetent, malicious, vindictive – it is, in short, what the second type of bureaucrats make it in the furtherance of the bureaucracy and their own power and privilege.  And the Iron Law of Oligarchy says:

Historical evolution mocks all the prophylactic measures that have been adopted for the prevention of oligarchy.

People keep acting as though things can keep going on as they have, but as Glenn Reynolds keeps repeating, “Something that can’t go on forever, won’t.” ~

~ One thing’s for sure – the powerful and privileged will do whatever it takes to keep as much power and privilege as they can.  And Government v.2.0 will be the tool by which it’s accomplished.

You need to go and read the entire work.  Kevin draws on the wisdom of historical giants, and his own, to weave for us this important message quoted above.

I’m hoping mercy will be included in the process, but if history is any indication, I doubt it.

  1. “They” don’t care about “the little people in flyover country” – and never have. It’s up to us to push back harder than they trod down, if that’s possible. I reckon we’ll find out, soon enough.
