Kindness & the Voting Public
Responding to msg by Doug Cutrell:
In the real world, the voting public is not required to
be kind to the hospital or the company, either. If a
large political block can put into place structures
(laws and enforcement) which effectively provide
coercion against such denials of service, this is fair
play as well.
All's fair in love and war.
But how many of the voting public does it take to squeeze blood
out of a turnip? (i.e. create something from nothing?) Before
the voting public which bands together can coerce a service out
of some corporate entity, there must first be a Provider in
existence. This Provider most probably would not have
materialized miraculously out of the good intentions of the
State but would had to go through all the time and trouble of
gathering the ideas, the resources, and the manpower to make
their services available to customers.
Once the corporation, that enterprise, that commerical entity,
had been created and constructed - once the building was in
place, the system set up along with the required equipment, and
all of the administrative functions had been set in motion,
*then* the voting public would have an object for their
attention; they could come together and attempt to take over
the operation and coerce the Provider into delivering the
benefits indiscriminately to everyone. They could probably
even conspire to have this service for free. They might even
succeed in accomplishing it, and maybe it would work for a bit.
But I don't know how long Providers could survive without
remuneration, in the real world, nor how long they would
tolerate the image of themselves as Slaves to the Voting
