Beyond Being

The Good is not being, but beyond being, surpassing it in dignity and power. — Plato

According to CBS News, the Department of Homeland Security has had its eye on Faisal Shahzad since 1999. That’s pretty impressive for a Department that didn’t exist until 2002.

Wow, so government agencies can do their jobs just as well when they don’t exist as when they do! I guess that settles the debate over anarchism.

    If you apply the charity principle, you would probably conclude that an agency that was later merged with DHS had been keeping an eye on Faisal Shahzad since 1999.

    BTW, have you commented on this yet?

    I noticed the same thing when I first saw the headline, unfortunately it slipped past Lew Rockwell and many other news outlets as well.
