Government Agencies Who Needs Them

For years the incompetency of government has been blamed on the lack of government. I would like to show the fallacy of this argument by creating an illustration. Imagine that there is a beautiful island that hasn't been discovered, but soon a ship lands on the island, discovering it. The ship carries rats which quickly reproduce and cause an imbalance in the natural ecosystem, so should the captain deliver more rats to the island to solve the problem, obviously not, so why are we so easily fooled into thinking that more government always solves the problem. This article shows how government agencies manipulate statistics to "prove" their worthiness. This article creates an alternative to our bureaucratic tale.
