Bob Podolsky is interviewed on Free Talk Live. Bob Talks about what is a cartel and what the government is: a huge power brokerage cartel. Or in other words a shared monopoly. How and why did governments develop? Why do we tolerate government? Fear of government and fear of Chaos. The only thing government provides is a form of organization. The type of organization it provides is a hierarchy!
In a hierarchy command flows down and hopefully feedback flows up. The problem with hierarchy is it invariably creates bureaucracy. Bureaucracy is the systematic elimination, destruction or avoidance of corrective feedback. So if an organization destroys corrective feedback, then the head will not know what the hands and feet have done and makes a lot of mistakes. When the lack of the feedback relates to the ethics of what the organization has done, that organizations will do a lot of evil!
