    No, it a matter of how capitalism works to solve problems.

    The benefits are not exactly offered for nothing, they are paid with taxes. There is certainly some waste and fraud in government provided services, but there is waste and fraud when businesses provide services also. When a government service is not provided properly citizens can make an issue with it with their elected officials. If the elected officials are not responsive, they can vote for someone else or even run for office or a do a ballot measure. If a business fails to provide a service properly you can try complaining, but the business has no obligation to respond. Depending on the type of business, you may have the ability to use another service provider, but there is no guarantee that the competition will be better. You may get told that their quality of service is just standard practice, as happens with airlines and banks, for example.

    Yet you cannot show where it has worked to develop water and wastewater systems in a single first world nation in the world.

    It doesn't really matter if schools are socialism or not.
    What matters is if they're achieving universal goals of providing high end education to the children.

    In my opinion, and I'm pretty hard core libertarian on this issue, they do not.
    I believe that schools primary objective is to institutionalize children, so they become passive adults.
    It's a sort of brainwashing, education is secondary.

    When education was made compulsory and when the feds got involved, the majority of the population was not uneducated.
    So to assume that sans government involvement, that people would be uneducated is incorrect.

    Today, schools largely function as a baby sitting service for parents, education comes next, as least from the parents perspective.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    What makes you think that I am interested in free education? We no longer have school age children but if we did I wouldn't be interested in free education? As a matter of fact we vote for most school bond issues. We don't want free education we want good education for all of our kids.

    So you don't agree with the arguments that people keep using saying that private education is too expensive and that they are only interested in profits? In the past I have offered up ideas that would cost people almost nothing, but still, people kept saying that the poor couldn't afford it. The only possible thing they could want then is free education, so like the good little capitalist I came up with a solution to give them that. Now apparently I'm being told it wasn't free education they wanted, but just simply good education?? If that is the case then there doesn't appear to be a problem.
