From Mutual Aid is not, nor does it intend to be, a comprehensive study demonstrating the superiority of private social welfare efforts over government programs. But Beito does provide evidence of what has been, and can be, done by private, voluntary organizations. Whether the energy and effectiveness of mutualism can be revived, or whether people will continue to demand paternalistic dependency is an open question.
