Were you talking about public goods vs. private goods? You think all parks, roads, libraries, services etc. should be bought and sold? Who owns the resources such as water contained in an aquifer or a mine which runs under numerous properties? Do the people of Saudi Arabia own the oil or the king? Who owned it before?

I know what your saying and makes total sense and why of the complexity of Private vs Public especially balancing the two within a Society either way its comes down to some form of Socialism because I cant see one individual owning and controlling the natural resource or we would be going back towards like Classic feudalism.

Indeed. Do we really own anything in life? We can't take it with us. Suppose I buy a nice Fender Guitar. I play the shit out of it. Since I can't take it with me, didn't I just borrow it? The next would be Jimi Hendrix will play it, smash it or whatever. Do I own the air I breath or the water I drink?

You have a point about feudalism. Feudalism was somewhat related to organized crime. One gang of thugs took over an area of land. Eventually they formed some kind of power structure. The ones at the top became landlords. They offered protection to people, collected rents and fended off invaders. In return the serfs fed them and served them. They had no choice. It was almost like being a sharecropper. Now we have nation states with National Defense, Homeland Security, the TSA etc. We have to feed them so they keep us safe.

What has really changed? There is no such thing as anarchy. There is organized crime and nation states. There are those who work and do stuff and then there are the parasites who live off the toil of others. I believe Karl Marx saw this and sought to find a solution. The French Revolution killed the parasites. Eventually, they decided that the nation state was better. It happened to a lesser degree in England with Oliver Cromwell. Both countries brought back the kings. I find the idea of Kings vs. Judges in the Bible to be of interest and most likely related to Greek Philosophy.

Anyway I just had a nice rant. Was it any good or am I just another midnight rambler?

You mean like Caesars theory on how a happenstance mob carrying RPG launchers just happened to be in front of the US embassy when they got a burr up their ass?
Now that's an arguable theory.

Thanks. It was one of those stream of consciousness type of things. Perhaps consciousnesses? The midnight oil brings some interesting ideas at times.

What was the problem in 2004? They filed bankruptcy then too.
It's the Bain Plan. File for bankruptcy, screw the workers, break the contract and put the costs on the taxpayers while the big boys walk away with whatever cash they can manage to hide or make appear it is spoken for in Costs Of Operations.
Wake up Kennesaw. You could be next. Union or no Union. Profits and Greed are Number 1.
