If you ever, even for a moment, fool yourself into thinking that governments are about solving problems, remember Detroit.
Detroit did not fail because its government failed to solve problems, it failed because the way we do business changed. Crooked politicians are an unfortunate truth there but it hardly is a statement on the idea of government. Its more a statement on the unfortunate culture that is remaining there for a majority of its voters....did they knowingly vote crooks in, or are they just easily fooled by them?
