An Open Postcard to the Koch Brothers

Selfishness is the root of big government.

To wit: when we strive solely on behalf of our own interests, we create a social vacuum into which government is drawn as light into a black hole.

For this reason, those who would demand less government must thus first make it unnecessary.

A tiny hint to the Koch brothers, Rupert Murdoch, and other American plutocrats. Take a hint from Bill Gates and put your money to work solving the problems that afflict our nation and our planet, rather than pouring it down the sewer of political patronage. Not only will you whittle away at the need for government to take action, you will also leave a legacy of more streamlined government for future generations.

All it takes is wise vision, rather than the myopia of ideology.
