What we really need is the government to control more of our activities.
The government is wise to the needs and desires of its subjects, especially
concerning power and the distribution of such.
People's desires should be trumped by wiser government.
Government understands best what is acceptable to society; the society
itself is not able to make coherent choices. Society, comprised of people,
cannot be expected to influence markets by purchasing that which is desired
and allowing demand to decline, and forcing the subsequent demise for items
unpurchased. Government must do this, armed with the knowledge of what is
good and right.
Government, on the other hand, is comprised of government. It is
benevolent and sage, knowing what is best for its flock. People should
relinquish their wanton desire to the government, and there they should
Considering the compilation of a brilliant table of horsepower-to-weight
ratio, I feel the benevolent government should create a weight-to-height
ratio for human beings. Perhaps the government could dictate a sensible
ban on items like doughnuts and Big Macs. For God's sake, no one in their
right mind needs the sort of power (calories) packed so efficiently into
the product that is the Big Mac. Such a table could effectively be used to
ban high-power food items and in turn would create a new, slimmer sort of
human that would put less stress on the health-care industry. Fat humans
could be charged a fat tax proportionate to their expected drain on the
system, and foodstuffs could be outright banned from the store shelves.
I get the feeling you really don't even like cars.
