I can't find anything I disagree with in John Stossel's column today. He cites the systems that government has created -- in both transportation and organ transplants -- and shows why they don't work. Instead of an outcry against the failed systems, though, all we get is hand-wringing and jealous sniping from the command-and-control types who are inherently suspicious of free-market solutions.

Government is doing such a poor job in so many areas (Social Security, education, energy policy, etc.), but yet there are always those who want to give over more aspects of their lives to government control. I'd seriously appreciate hearing from people who think government is always the best answer -- I just can't wrap my mind around that.
