Letter from Brian J. Monahan

PRESUMPTUOUSNESS
By Brian J. Monahan
jerome@rmi.net

How dare any politician lecture "citizens" about ethics and morality! And presume to tax, regulate and kill as "reresentatives." Randolph S. Bourne: "War is the health of the state." They are obviously ignorant of Monahan's Law: Productive Work Accomplished is inversely proportional to the Political Effort Expended or, expressed mathematically PWA = 1/PEE. In a politicized society, PWA approaches zero, but when PEE is zero, PWA is infinitely high.
