disasters and limited resources

In his column today, Thomas Sowell notes:
The country does not have one dime more resources available when those resources are channeled through government. The resources are just handled less effectively by government and dispensed in an indiscriminate way that encourages people to continue locating in the known path of predictable disasters.
Too many people think that the State has a magic bucket of money, unconstrained by the resources of society, that it can compassionately pour out in times of need. The reality is as Sowell says, that our resources are finite and filtering them through a Federal bureaucracy makes us worse off, not better.

Read the aptly titled "FEMA versus Wal-Mart" for more gems.
