Private Dollars Lead New Orleans Recovery

This story is really not a surprise. Private charity has always been more effective at improving peoples’ lives than government handouts and examples of this in reaction to Hurricane Katrina have already been widely reported.
What is surprising is that people are so easily fooled, so often, by government officials who say “we’re going to help.” Things weren’t always this way. In fact, after every disaster, natural or otherwise, we should mandate the reading of “Not Yours to Give,” an excellent Illustration of the way government has usurped and corrupted private charity.
