    Think of the duplication of effort, the pocket-lining, the people excluded (no 'universal service'), the lack of long-term planning (quarterly profits?), the lack of accountability, the rise in costs (look at the vaunted 'liberalization' of electric utilities), the decline in services, the resulting human suffering, etc.

    "Profiting off human misery" per se doesn't bother me -- farmers grow food and profit when people don't starve -- but the private sector is not a substitute for all government. Disaster-relief is an essential governmental role.
