Prepare For Hormegeddon

*** begin quote ***

Finally, in 1943, two scientists published a journal article about this phenomenon and gave it a name: “hormesis.” It is what happens when a small dose of something produces a favorable result, but if you increase the dosage, the results are a disaster.

*** and ***

Hormegeddon is my shorthand way of describing what happens when you have too much of a good thing in a public-policy context.

Economists describe the “too much of a good thing” phenomenon as “declining marginal utility.”

Seems like our immoral, ineffective, and inefficient Gooferment has had a “declining marginal utility” for a century.

The question is how do we prune it back? Or hack it back!

Argh!
