Chaos is here and she's pissed

"Implicit in the activist conception of
government is the assumption that you can take
the good things in a complex system for granted,
and just improve the things that are not so good.
What is lacking in this conception is any sense
that a society, an institution, or even a single
human being, is an intricate system of fragile
inter-relationships, whose complexities are
little understood and easily destabilized."
-- Thomas Sowell
