065: Bureaucrats Are People Too!

In today's installment, I interview Steve Ressler, founder of the government employee social networking site govloop.com, and organizer of the Government Doesn't Suck Rally (October 30th, Washington D.C.). I happen to have a show that suggests the government does suck, so I thought we could bounce some ideas off each other. I skipped past a number of arguments and questions to deal specifically with the non-aggression principle. While I thought this would be little more than an amusing discussion, it actually evolved into a larger examination of empathy, forgiveness, and differentiation within the bureaucratic structure.
