CONservative and LIEbertarian Assault On The “Commons”

CONservatives and LIEbertarians won’t be happy until they’ve destroyed any social institution that doesn’t function to create profits for corporations. From prisons to libraries, there have been institutions in our society that we hold “in common”. Public libraries, public schools, public safety (police and fire departments) even parks are all facing coordinated assaults on their very existence as public institutions. Corporations and their enablers (aka CONservatives and LIEbertarians) hate these things because people make use of them without enriching the economic elite. Hell, they don’t even believe you should be able to lend something you bought to a neighbor or friend.

    public schools

    You are not actually going to defend public schools, are you?

    they don’t even believe you should be able to lend something you bought to a neighbor or friend.

    When have libertarians ever been opposed to lending?
