A Different Perspective

From another conservative whose writings I respect, Yuval gives another angle on the "failure" of government in response to disaster. I tend to agree with him in the fact that I am glad we do not have a federal government apparatus that "would have such total control over every facet of every industry that the potential for industrial accidents would be entirely eliminated" but I do believe the federal government has some responsibilities in its response to such disasters. It cannot prevent them and no government is perfect but we do need them to lead on certain issues.
