New Year 2014–Raison d’etre

As the last parts of many beneficial reforms I was involved in over the years fall out of the bland shredder which is timidity and MMP I struggled to find motivation for another year – especially an election year.

I should have looked, as always, to my betters. Steven Landsburg pointed out Milton Friedman’s wisdom:

“Only a crisis – actual or perceived – produces real change. When that crisis occurs, the actions that are taken depend on the ideas that are lying around. That, I believe, is our basic function: to develop alternatives to existing policies, to keep them alive and available until the politically impossible becomes the politically inevitable.”

And so none escape another year or more of my efforts.
