I do appreciate the humor.

to some degree, or more specifically as far as it goes...

And perhaps your only intent of creating this post was in jest. Perhaps the extent of effort to which you included unspecified links was in its satire an attempt to mirror the verbosity of BILL3. Perhaps you were patiently waiting for your booby trap to spark a comment like mine, and you had the stock reply lying in wait to spring forth on the likes of me to complete your joke.

I have laughed, but am left still curious if you actually have read, yourself, any particular articles from the actual sites you are now suggesting that I search on my own.

I hope you will appreciate the extended humor in the form of pure irony, in that the first link I clicked on was associated with this...

"Who will actively prevent people from helping each other?" -BT

ha ha ha ;)

That is seriously the most profound text of your OP. That bares the deepest essence of what bugs me about Statism, not that Statist bureaucratic effort is merely inefficient, but that it provides an obstacle in the path of people attempts to actually associate. A State program will take money from me [skim it's cut, but that's another story] and hand it to my hungry neighbor. In so doing, healthy association is decimated. My neighbor never knocks on my door to tell me he's hungry, I remain oblivious, and I never know to walk next door with a pan of lasagna. When community participants are stripped from having to talk about the bulk of what's important in life, we're left with chit-chatting at the picket fence and water cooler [if at all] about American Idol and Justin Bieber. I digress.

If you actually have read an article at CATO regarding this topic, please help me find it. I would like to read it. I did do a few searches there as such, but I came up with nothing in that particular vein [merely vaguely related stuff like this].

Robert Nisbet wrote about this extensively, about how the State destroys community through usurpation. Tom Dilorenzo generally entertains me a great deal more, but this remains my all-time favorite lecture spoken at LVMI...

Brad's book is even better...
