If a person hordes everything they can, and needs a government to tell them to shape up and stop acting like a spoiled child, then that person really has no place in civilization, and would rather be a caveman. Actually, even cavemen pooled their resources so they could all live better. There is actually no civilization in human history where everyone has only worked for their own benefit. Even the rugged frontiersmen of the American West had to work together to survive. We are a communal species. That's how we are. The ones who only worked to benefit themselves were the tyrranical aristocrats and war-leaders who murdered, raped, and pillaged their way through history, and were the exact dynamic that we in America rebelled against. In functional terms, there is no difference between a wealthy business owner and an Earl or a Duke. They own the things you need to live, and use power and force to keep you from having it.
If someone thinks that the government, which is entirely staffed and run by Americans who grew up in American neighborhoods, raised on American values, attended American schools, does anything besides executing the will of the people, then they are sorely mistaken. Unfortunately, we the American people allowed our will to be expressed in the money owned by a few individuals. And it is our own fault for letting that happen, and we need to do something about that.
Liberté. Égalité. Fraternité.
government sets up the courts - for the express purpose of using due process to stip you of rights. So the right to an attorney is more like an extension of your rights to defend your life and liberty.
unlike the courts, government isn't putting your health at risk , so they have no obligation to ensure they don't adversely impact your health.
The European experiment in "sharing" involves people sharing their skills and in exchange they're exempted from the "sharing" of bullets, rubber truncheons, and prison. That is, after all, the heart of socialism.
And..If a person hordes everything they can, and needs a government to tell them to shape up and stop acting like a spoiled child, then that person really has no place in civilization, and would rather be a caveman.
...in a grown-up mature civilization, the hoarder is recognized as a free individual and he's allowed his freedom to live his own life. Only in juvie "civilizations" do the governmnts beleive that its acceptable to use the force held by the mindless mob to steal what the hoarder possesses for their own greedy purposes. Which is exactly what all socialist schemes do.

My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
See more as a solution to a problem and not a right. It is more a public health issue, and not so different from fire departments and other public issues that we work together to solve.
AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
