14. You shouldn't own resources everybody needs. Society, as a whole, owns it.
Edited on Fri Feb-09-07 11:52 AM by Selatius
If I had my way, if you wish to use resources for your own purposes, you should pay a "usage fee" for their use. The greater the capital you own, the greater the fee you pay. The fees would be used to run publicly owned banks where respective communities have control over local branches. The banks would fund the establishment of worker co-ops and the expansion of others as well as the expansion of commerce and industry as a whole. In this way, workers operating in co-ops have no bosses but themselves.
