Well, gee, I certainly hope I own myself. If not I'd need the perp's name and address so I can take care of business.

Exactly, but making that commodity a not for profit production, and making it a socailly controlled industry rather than private DOES lower cost.Forcing payment for an unfairly highly priced item in effect rewards whoever is pricing it that way. If a bunch of you pay for me to have a nicer house, it didn't make the house more affordable. It remains just as unaffordable and simply shifts the burden for its unaffordability elsewhere. So again, no, spreading insane costs around doesn't make them sane. The same cost is incurred, the same high priced item gets purchased, and so it goes.
