People doing it for themselves


Love Katheryn McCallum's piece in The Age this morning.  I love communities doing it for themselves.  That's how it should be.

There is one warning/proviso however.  There is a libertarian school of thought that thinks about the only thing governments should be responsible for is Defence - the Army, the Navy and the Air Force - and then only the core.  Everything gets contracted out - and probably shooting the bullets will be contracted next.

From what I can see, those with this view are never out doing it in the community either.  I reckon government/community balance is the way to go and this does not mean that the community side of the equation is the best or richest lobbyist.
