    in large parts of the country, privatization lies based on some pie in the sky numbers in one miniscule study two and a half decades ago has started a flood.  Parks, fire departments, police services,  maintenance,  parole supervision, prisons, it is all happening with or without the financial managers,  it is just more blatantly anti-democratic with the managers.  But every time the propagandists reiterated we need to run government like a business, we need business men not lawyers in office making the laws, we were getting fucked and not many paid any attention.

    Government is not a business, it doesn't sell products, it is not about making a profit, it isn't intended to be full of nickel and dime fees for each service and if you can't afford it you can't have it.    Public infrastructure isn't created only if it pays for itself, etc.  The whole bullshit lie has been swallowed hook, line and sinker by at least 50% of the population and repeated by the MSM daily.
