Public finances

This strip by Wondermark illustrates the state of the debate about public finances. It's all about not "stealing the taxpayer's money" and politicians are all crooks and liars. Some people seem to think: "Well, I don't need this particular subsidy/service/security, therefore it is a complete waste of money!"

It saddens me that we seem to have somehow slipped down Mastov's pyramid so that we're only thinking about ourselves again.
