There are a couple of places in this world that don't have governments. Have you considered moving to Somalia or the Congo? I'm sure you'd be much happier there.
I am not proposing anarachy here. I am simply proposing limited government. What you seem to overlook is that government is made up of people and just like the private sector, people in government also have their own agendas. That is why big government is so susceptible to lobbying and such. Cut that government power and you lose that lobbying power. Markets mean everyone has equal power, whereas government-backing through lobbying and such means a few groups have more power than others and leads to problems such as those that we are currently seeing in the health care market.
@Dirk I am going to go with curious on this one (probably the first time we have agreed on something ) and ask how do you see that working. How would the worker's soviet maintain equal power among the workers? That sort of thinking has been tried before and it turned into communism. Just wondering how you see it working out- would there be representation that makes choices for others (which would be government) or would people simply have buying power limits and suppliers have selling power limits (free markets) or something else?...
