56. I would love to!
I am all for regulation (rather re-regulation) of certain shared and finite resources; even and especially when administered by a private entity. The basics, home heating, drinking water, universal healthcare (not universally available risk-based insurance, but the real deal healthcare.

Unfortunately that is more than a mere thread; it's an economics and social planning essay. But I will definitely start thinking on that topic. There is a palatable middle ground that isn't "socialism" in the freeper-scare sense but definitely a more regulated "free market" than we have today.

Essentially, if government administers to the rights of individuals FIRST, then other legal entities SECOND, in that order and precedence, our entire normative socio-economic value system changes.

Thanks - :hi:
