9/11 Conspiracy Theories and National Health Care: How They are Linked

I saw the following letter on Mark Steyn's website:
I've come to believe that the main reason people cling to 9/11 conspiracy theories is that they have a vision of government as all-wise, all-powerful, and all-knowing, capable of accomplishing anything it sets its collective mind to, accompanied by grandiose swells of orchestral music.

If they accepted the reality that government is a blind, lumbering giant that damages or destroys anything it comes into contact with, staffed all too often with lazy, inept, clock-punching featherbedders, too deeply incompetent to accomplish anything like what they describe, then all their dreams of a government-imposed utopia would fall to ruin.

In other words, in order to believe in nationalized health care, you have to believe in a 9/11 government conspiracy.
