My internet/cable has been out all day--a general outage, I'm told.
I'm fine with this, because it was a free-enterprise outage. Had my cable/internet service been a government-run service, I would have really been steamed, because, well, that's government for you. Government just isn't a problem; government is the problem.
Now it's true that the Post Office, that notorious offspring of incompetent GovThink, processes more than a half-billion pieces of mail each day, some of them mine. And it's also true that, for years, the Post Office has never lost or destroyed so much as one piece of my mail, which still costs less than a half-buck to send from where I am to a couple hundred or even a couple thousand miles away. This realization always makes me happy--until I recall that government or any government-related operation is the problem, our worst problem, a monstrously tyrannical problem.
So I've missed nearly one full day of free-enterprise cable/internet. So what? Its costly absence was a virtuous absence. So. No problem.
