But but but, who's pic-a-nic baskets will Yogie steal to eat? He will starve!
The analogy is Yogie / the gov, stealing Pic-a-nic baskets / funds from the public.
Yogie as a cartoon character is as much a fiction as government or any other corporation. It's a construct like the Matrix. It's not real. Stop being afraid of a fiction! Vacate the fiction!
