Re: Net Neutrality
"And to government you're only worth as much as they can squeeze out of your wallet."
It looks good on a bumper sticker but your point is completely underwritten by the fact that so many governments have universal healthcare, welfare, food stamps, etc... They would just let poor people die like 3rd world nations do, if there was no one in government who cares. There would be no Social Security or any other social nets if that was the case.
Is government perfect? No. Is government mismanaged? Regularly yes. But a corporation is LEGAL INSTITUTION TO PROVIDE VALUE TO THEIR STOCK HOLDERS!
That is all a corporation is. A government is an institution we agree to pay into, because it allows us to resolve issues that we currently would not be able to resolve in an anarchistic society or a corporate run society. At least not with any fairness.
I would love to be an anarchist. However Americans are far too stupid in aggregate, to be trusted with such responsibility as... Educate children properly. We'd have entire generations of kids growing up thinking that the Flintstones is a realistic interpretation of our 6k year old planet. Cause corporations would be making the books that people feel push their agenda. Not ones that have any sort of factual consistency or relevance.
That in essence is the difference between corps and government. Government is how we help ourselves however we allow corporations too much influence financially so the money we give to corporations allow them to help themselves.
