  •  The nation and the states are all corporations -- (0+ / 0-)

    artificial bodies organized for the express purpose of distributing risk and holding the individual participants free from liability. Corporations are structured to avoid individual accountability. That's why their operations and functions have to be minutely specified ahead of time and, in the event of failure to comply, the corporation has to be dissolved. Michigan, with its takeover of municipalities, is actually providing a real-time example of how the process works. That the Michigan municipalities are "failing" because they have been starved for funds is another matter. That's an example of failure by design. Minority communities are not supposed to thrive. Using money to strangle them and cause their demise indirectly has generally been effective, except for the fact that the commitment to human rights cannot be wiped out. Property rights can trump human rights. Ownership can trump obligation, but the idea of equality can't be killed off. "Sam I Am."

    We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
