3 (or 4) thoughts on the gubmint

  1. A healthy suspicion of centralized power is a good thing.
  2. Hence, one ought always to be suspicious of the government having too much power. (Liberals, don’t be naive.)
  3. But when you believe “the government always fucks things up!” or “the government just wants to take away my liberty,” well, this sort of dogmatic, religious belief in the evils of government is equally naive.
  4. Like any institution, the government can do good or harm. Take it seriously and, like, get involved.

Writer. In the summers, I live and work in the incredible state of Alaska, in the bush community of McCarthy; I pass the winters in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. I'm working on a memoir-based nonfiction book on the American Dream. I blog, quite frequently, and I also have a novel in process, set in Alaska.

Consider this post an invitation, an invitation to comment and collaborate, in an open-ended sort of way, so please share your...whatever it is that's on your mind: thoughts, ideas, greetings, angst/irritation, inspiration, confusion, query, rant, salutation, data/research, meme, epigram, exposition or epiphany -- because I'm all about the synergy and solidarity. ~ JE
