Anarchy would be preferable
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius rebuffed an appeal from Rep. Lou Barletta on behalf of a girl who needs a lung transplant but can’t get one because of a federal regulation that prevents her from qualifying for a transplant.
“Please, suspend the rules until we look at this policy,” Barletta, a Pennsylvania Republican, asked Sebelius during a House hearing Tuesday on behalf of Sarah Murnaghan, a 10-year-old girl who needs a lung transplant. She can’t qualify for an adult lung transplant until the age of 12, according to federal regulations, but Sebelius has the authority to waive that rule on her behalf. The pediatric lungs for which she currently qualifies aren’t available.
It’s been said that fire, water and governments know nothing of mercy. Ms. Sebelius isn’t acquainted with the word, no doubt.
Some seem to think that government, any government, even Stalin’s Soviet Union or Hitler’s Nazi party or Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge is preferable to anarchy. Every government is an insidious evil. Incrementally, they destroy freedom, subjugate the people, and rule with impunity.
Governments are made of people. Government gives people a legitimate structure to enact their evil, and the principle evil they commit goes back to the garden where man chose the knowledge of good and evil to become god. Choosing legality as the implementation of their good, they have chosen evil.
