The Role of Government

I am not going to offer a political commentary on this topic, but rather an attempt to offer a distillation of the competing theories of “government” and what the impacts may be. As with any short piece, there will be missing or abbreviated concepts, so address those with comments, please.

First, let’s get definitions:
  • Government: A third party formed to create and enforce

TSA. Man oh man but what is up with all the drama with TSA? The entire country is in an uproar over TSA, and it's a good bet 90 percent of the country doesn't even know what it stands for.

The, uh hem, "T"ransportation "S"ecurity "A"dministration is catching it from all angles over their new fangled scanning devices. Well, to be more accurate, they are catching hell from all the people who want to avoid those scanning devices citing an invasion of privacy.
