Government vs. Non- Government

This guy's opinion piece in the Eureka Reporter had me going this morning. I couldn't figure out what point he was trying to make until right at the end.

At first I took him to be a life long government devotee, having served in the Peace Corps and then taking a job with California State Parks. Then, at the end of his piece, he credits all the improvements he witnesses in Thailand to capitalism, not government.

Who'd a thunk it? As one of the reporters for the Eureka Reporter pointed out to me a while back, it's surprising how many libertarians have government jobs.

Im not surprised many Libertarians have government jobs. What else are they good for?

After all, Government is the employer of last resort and Libertarians are greedy hypocritics who collect their "green beanie" paychecks as they diss the government's efforts.

In reality, if the government is inefficient and bureaucratic, its largely due to the Libertarian luddite employees mucking up the works.
