“By definition, privatization undercuts democracy:
Take something out of the public arena and put it into the hands of unaccountable private tyrannies that are created and supported by the state, which is what corporations are.”

    that’s a very difficult statement. while private corporations have agendas – as
    has been proven over and over again – so does our government that works now for the 1% agenda. Power has eclipsed corporate.

      “That’s the standard technique of privatization: defund, make sure things
      don’t work, people get angry, you hand it over to private capital.”

        I did hesitate to like your post – just ’cause of the terribly realistic image… 😦 I met Chomsky at the University, via one of my Professors who still ‘worships’ him, reckoning him as one of the greatest contemporary thinkers…

          I am quite impressed by Chomsky myself.
          I used that image once before and the impact stayed with me, so I thought it would be appropriate for this post.

      Privatisation in the UK is another economic destructive disaster of Margaret Thatcher – and the asset stripping continues.
