Comment: here's my take: governments

(See in situ)

here's my take: governments

here's my take:

governments aren't inept at EVERYTHING - they are inept at some things.

to be more precise, governments fail in delivering 'goods'(i.e products, services, etc...) but excel in delivering 'bads'(death, poverty, war, etc...)

I mean just look at the democide figures for the 20th century - no mean feat mind you.
