{{Much, if not most, of the "work" done nowadays is just so much paperwork. Very few workers actually do anything really necessary. You may be one of those that actually contribute something of real value. The rest are on a giant WPA program. All insurance, most banking, government, and many other "useful" jobs are just moving paper from one pile to another, or shuffling electronic data. The reason is just for bookkeeping. Useless otherwise, if you think about it.

This liberal diatribe is just by way of saying that we really don't need all those workers, nor the "work" that they so proudly contribute (all the while disdaining the "welfare queens" who actually contribute about as much useful output as they do).

I thought you might like to see what a real liberal concept is, as compared to your fantasies.}}



I only wish that liberals thought of government as useless.
