December 10th 2008, day 210 / Sculptures / Entering Vermont / Bennington, VT / Why is it almost universally accepted that govt should be responsible for trash collection? / Insidious spreading of govt programs like a virus / Does govt need to be in charge of trash? / It’s just a service and there’s nothing really special about it / Companies competing have an incentive to do a better job and keep their prices lower / Govt is not incentivized to do a good job if it’s the only game in town / So called “privatization”, where the govt picks one company to handle it, is really no better than just the govt itself doing it, because it’s still a monopoly / A real-world example of competing garbage collection companies - Keene, New Hampshire / Original reason for govt trash collection - somebody complaining about a neighbor throwing garbage on his lawn in the night lobbying govt to take over trash collection so he’s no longer “incentivized” to do that? / If that was the case, it’s just a private property rights violation and should have been dealt with that way, instead of violating everyone’s right to their own free choice / The bad actions of a few are not an excuse to impose government force on all / People should be responsible for their own trash disposal / 17.73 miles for liberty / http://SubYT.WalkForLiberty.com Click to subscribe to my YouTube channel / Safety belts required by Vermont Govt for E.T.? / RV almost getting stuck
