Welcome to Washington


I am not entirely sure it is not, but my personal impression is that nothing makes people more cynical about government than working for it. I have never heard a libertarian speak about the futility of most government departments the way American and foreign officials often do in restaurants or bars on Capitol Hill, on K Street — the center of the lobbying industry — in Georgetown or even at the Fish Wharf.

From Welcome to Washington, by Alvaro Vargas Llosa of the Center on Global Prosperity at The Independent Institute.
