Time for a new Profile. Times have changed and I haven’t — or maybe it’s just that times haven’t changed and I haven’t either. There seems to be just the same kinds of foolish behavior and self-interest as when I was growing up.
I remember reading about changes that occurred in the coloration of moths, as nature selected them to blend with an increasingly polluted environment. It used to be the “wolves in sheep’s clothing” that endangered our society; now it’s the wolves in shepherd’s clothing we should be looking out for.

This story highlights how the focus of a government or charitable institution can switch from the welfare of the recipients to the welfare of the program itself. After all, the program is where the time and money, and reputations are committed. It’s an actual story of the effectiveness of a school breakfast program somewhere. [And maybe many-wheres.] • Programs and charities become vested with goodness; cloaking themselves with the same moral protections as the people that are supposed to be helping — the perfect environment for bureaucracy, inefficiency, and waste. • Our government and our institutions would be much more effective if they saw themselves as self-dissolving servants of our welfare; rather than enthroning themselves as administrators. • Modern technology may be used to reduce the paperwork, but not the work. It’s like inventing the internal combustion engine; and using it to circulate air among the galley slaves. • Why do we spend $100,000 to pay someone to distribute $1,000, when it could be done with a $10 chip?
