As I have been arguing for years, we can fund the hiring of public servants ourselves. And this money is not even part of the two trillion underground because lotto dollars are fully accounted for by the taxing authorities.

In short, the only problem we have is poor distribution. It is the same problem which leads to one third of food production going to waste. Bad management.

It is the problem exemplified by the pediatrician’s advice to let a baby cry 20 minutes before each feeding to teach it obedience.
