    The free market is not the solution, the free market is the problem.

      Our governmental entities are all corporations. Public corporations and private corporations are all artificial man-made bodies organized for the purpose of mitigating risk. The only real differences lie in the fact that public corporations authorize the private ones; membership in the public is based on residence, rather than a monetary buy-in; and the obligations of the private are less restrictive -- something we ought to correct.

      What we have in many cases is the equivalent of people being ruled by their pets.

      We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.

        must have them. I mean by corporation a business entity, organized to bring profits to the owners. Our government is not a corporation in this sense.

        The free market is not the solution, the free market is the problem.
