Dave Winer over at Scripting News asks a very pertinent question:
“Why are we paying taxes to the US Treasury when the government won’t protect us from a deadly virus? Why are we funding a military when we can’t get vaccine into the arms of Americans? This is a war where, if we chose to fight it, we could win in 3 weeks. What’s the purpose of such an expensive military beyond protecting Americans?”
Why indeed? Our government lost its way a long time ago. It doesn’t serve the people’s needs, it serves itself.
