Hurricane Exposes the Man-Made Disaster of the Welfare State
But this is not a natural disaster. It is a man-made disaster.
The man-made disaster is not an inadequate or incompetent response by federal relief agencies, and it was not directly caused by Hurricane Katrina. This is where just about every newspaper and television channel has gotten the story wrong.
The man-made disaster we are now witnessing in New Orleans did not happen over four days last week. It happened over the past four decades. Hurricane Katrina merely exposed it to public view.
The man-made disaster is the welfare state.
For another very worthy charity, Jackie Mayo's excellent OPERATION AC is responding to the hurricane relief: Because of Hurricane Katrina and major disaster in the states of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi area Operation AC is suspending sending air conditioners at this time. We are focusing our efforts on supporting our troops who are deployed from these states as well as help for them and their families.
