No ‘czars’ needed, thank you

(’76 Contributor) In the June 2011 issue of Natural History, Stanford University biology professor Deborah Gordon explains, “Ant colonies work without central control … No ant gives instructions to another, or decides for another what needs to be done … Without anyone in charge, colonies respond effectively to a changing world. Stuff happens to an ant colony … and the colony reacts by adjusting … An ant makes moment-to-moment decisions …”

Ants achieve that level of self-actualization. I think that we humans can manage quite well without government bureaucrats, “czars” and politicians making our decisions for us. Don’t you?

And do those who promote government control actually think we all are less competent than ants? Or do they just crave power over us? Either answer is bad news.
