If the only entity that can create anything is the government then we have serious problems on our hands that need resolved ASAP. I see no reason any of us should hand money over to support something that is clearly broken and needed repaired.No you don't. You said so in your last post. You'll give nothing up, and you'll hide all your money regardless of the facts that government funding is what is pushing tech and advancement. That science and engineering has evolved to such a level that the money*time margin is not sustainable by private enterprise for base research. You think Verizon funded research into IC? Into cell tech? No, once that tech became engineerable, then they took over; they couldn't do it before. The days of Bell Labs are over, son. Medical science? Same thing. Pretty much all our tech, all our modern conveniences; more and more the base knowledge necessary to engineer such solutions is not obtainable through market.
No, I do not want to pay the government to be the source of all technology. You nailed it. I want that connection destroyed and not strengthened.You require something much more stable and able to source massive amounts of money that is required to advance further; government. But you don't want to pay for that. You "paid" for your phone, but you paid a company for production+profit costs. Taxes are what funded the research that ultimately bore the fruit of that tech. But you don't want to pay that. Somehow you feel entitled to the work of others. You'll give up nothing and take everything.
I told you what I want. I want a system that offers some sort of essence of voluntary exchange. The social contract demands it.I've seen your sort before, you're a welfare queen. You don't want "voluntary" because you cannot live by the consequences of such. You want and you want and you want, but you don't wish to pay. That's the bottom line. You will not give up anything for your "voluntary" society, thinking instead that you deserve and are entitled to the sweat of other's brows.
and I'm not asking for one.I said it before, I'll say it again. There's no such thing as a free lunch.
