No one was laughing last year after Hurrican Katrina devastated the Gulf Coast of the U.S. People were not demanding less government, but more, and especially better, government. Let's see some analysis here on the ways that postmodern societies operate and how governance can be improved. Orwellian themes won't point you in the right direction.

So in that sense I agree, we need less Government, and whatever remains should be more effective.
