Octavio Paz books
Octavio Paz, Nobel Award Winner and writer from Mexico, defines government as “el ogro filantrópico” which loosely translates to (the philanthropic ogre). This refers to a creature that:
” gives out subsidies and programs to supposedly alleviate poverty, but at the same time devours more and more of the nation’s prosperity through the taxes used to fund those social programs and the ensuing corruption. The Ogre may even have good intentions, but its actions will do far more harm than good.”
This is a very vivid description of governments all over the world by Octavio Paz books.
