'Nothing' is best government activity

(My Eastern New Mexico News column for May 30, 2018)

There is one thing government could do which I will support. One thing I believe it needs to spend more time doing. It's the one thing government can do best, the one thing government can do which will actually help, and the only thing which can justify taxation.
What is this extraordinary government activity? Nothing.

I support government doing nothing, and I believe it needs to spend more time doing nothing. Nothing government does is better than what the market can do. Government does nothing which helps, and nothing justifies the rest...

Thank you for helping support

  1. Agreed. Nothing is the best thing that government can do.

    The reduction of government should be the primary goal of government. Government is a symptom of societal and cultural failures. Once those failures are corrected, government has no further use or purpose and should be reduced or eliminated.
