Dela, I agree with Cholo. We can read the entire text via a web link.

But, thank you regardless.

Regarding: "government was basically self-interested business at work, only far more inefficient" you are correct. It does not matter who is running the country, Republicans or Democrats. It's all about self-interest and self-preservation.

Case in point: My brother, a very conservative Republican, was excited that Republican George Deukmejian was elected as Governor of California in 1983. He was so excited that as a government employee in Sacramento he was willing to work through his lunch hour! Until, that fateful day came, when he realized that decisions were being made by the Deukmejian administration based on potential votes they could garner... He now admits, in so many words, "...government was basically self-interested business at work..."
