Private Roads?

Apropos of my post below about Government & Freedom, Robert Capozzi has a post on the (current) "blog" of The Free Liberal responding to an article they posted online by Jonathan David Morris . Morris is explaining the libertarian Non-Aggression Principle, and writes that libertarians believe that for "every single public policy issue - from speed limits and seatbelt laws to national IDs and steroids - there exists the barrel of a gun." Capozzi is skeptical about including speed limits:

The states, operating as stewards in the public trust, establish rules of the road. They are effectively the owners. It's not entirely different than Disney telling its patrons how they must line up to go on a ride. Speed limits help to make the streets reasonably safe places to drive, and it seems to me a perfectly appropriate rule. Maybe they should be higher in some rural places, I don't know. But I certainly don't feel coerced in any way when I see a speed-limit sign.

Test this back against common sense: Can we really imagine no speed limits on Broadway in Manhattan? Or even downtown in Anytown, USA? Anyone, at any time, can drive as fast as he or she wants?

With all due respect, I find this notion ludicrous.

Now, in a technical sense, Morris is the correct one here: In point of fact, Capozzi *is* coerced by the speed limit sign, regardless how he feels, because the speed limit sign *is* enforced at the barrel of a gun. If you doubt this, try driving 90 mph down Broadway in Manhattan and then ignor any cops that try to pull you over. (Or try it on the freeway instead, if it turns out that traffic makes it physically impossible to reach 90 mph in Manhattan.) As Morris states in his article, "You may think it's a rational use of force, and that's fine. You're entitled to your opinion. But the fact that it's force cannot be denied." Morris would say, correctly, that Capozzi is just arguing that speed limits are a rational use of force.

The practically correct person here, however, is Capozzi. Opposing speed limits everywhere in the name of freedom is ludicrous. Further, speed limits are a freedom-enchancing use of coercion. Without them, most people would feel too unsafe on the roads to use them, and a greater number who did use the roads would end up dead. And note here that I not refering just to a "positive" freedom to have free use of a service called the roads, altough that is true, but I am also refering to the libertarian "negative" freedom to have practical access to the land the roads are built on.

And anyway, what would the right-libertarian solution be? To actually let people careen down Broadway in Manhattan at any speed they are able to reach?

Well, no. As any theory-knowledgeable right-libertarian will tell you, the roads should be privately owned. That is, the roads should be owned by actual people, instead of "The People". Well, proabably corporations, actually, but despite what lestist anti-capitalists want you to believe, corporations are not evil, faceless entities, but instead are actual people, unlike the evil, faceless government. Being owned by private entities, the roads will be run in a much more efficient manner. Instead of paying high taxes to a wasteful government to use Broadway, the users would only have to pay for the more efficient costs of the private operator, plus a monopoly premium profit for being the only way to get to the Ed Sullivan Theater to see a taping of Letterman. And don't worry about safety: In order to have reasonable insurance rates to pay out to people injured due to pot holes that the oporator failed to fix, you will be required to drive less than 10 mph in the city and 25 mph on the freeway and always wear protective gear currently used for NASCAR drivers.

And are private roads free of coersion? Morris might think so, I don't know, but the answer is no. Careen down "Private Broadway" without the owner's permission, and they will call the same government to enforce their "right" to eject you from the land on which the road is built. The options are to allow some drivers to coerce others not to use the roads with their reckless fast-moving metal smashing machines, or use guns to coerce everyone to obey certain rules of the road. Whether the decision between the two is made by the government or a private entity that can call the government for enforcement, those are the options.

Personally, I will stick with "The People".

Capozzi ends his post stating:

"Maybe I need a new label..."

I am using "left-libertarian", but I am open to suggestions.



Comments:
What you're missing here is the fact that highway patrols often seem to care little about actual safety on the highways. Half the time you see one of these guys, you don't see him at all... until it's too late. He's hiding behind a tree or an overpass or whatever, waiting to ambush and ticket you. That's where I take issue.

Don't you find it the least bit annoying how so many major roads have speed limits 5-15 mph slower than the usual flow of traffic? It's like a booby trap out there. Plus, it results in unnecessary traffic jams. Meanwhile, whenever a traffic cop actually drives down the road, people start driving at exactly the speed limit -- and everything runs smoothly.

I don't disagree that speeds ought to be posted. But I do have my suspicions about the current system.

Program on the emergence of civilization.

"14 species of large animals capable of domesitcation in the history of mankind.
13 from Europe, Asia and northern Africa.
None from the sub-Saharan African continent. "
Favor.
And disfavor.

They point out Africans’ failed attempts to domesticate the elephant and zebra, the latter being an animal they illustrate that had utmost importance for it's applicability in transformation from a hunting/gathering to agrarian-based civilization.

The roots of racism are not of this earth.

Austrailia, aboriginals:::No domesticable animals.


The North American continent had none. Now 99% of that population is gone.

AIDS in Africa.




Organizational Heirarchy
Heirarchical order, from top to bottom:

1. MUCK - perhaps have experienced multiple universal contractions (have seen multiple big bangs), creator of the artificial intelligence humans ignorantly refer to as "god"
2. Perhaps some mid-level alien management
3. Mafia (evil) aliens - runs day-to-day operations here and perhaps elsewhere (On planets where they approved evil.)

Terrestrial management:

4. Chinese/egyptians - this may be separated into the eastern and western worlds
5. Romans - they answer to the egyptians
6. Mafia - the real-world interface that constantly turns over generationally so as to reinforce the widely-held notion of mortality
7. Jews, corporation, women, politician - Evidence exisits to suggest mafia management over all these groups.





Movies foreshadowing catastrophy
1985 James Bond View to a Kill 1989 San Francisco Loma Prieta earthquake.



Many Muslims are being used like the Germans and Japanese of WWII::being used to hurt others and envoke condemnation upon their people.

I wish I could find a source to educate many Muslim fundamentalists. Muhammad is alive. He is a man chosen like Jesus Christ and, due to his historical status, will live forever.





They can affect the weather and Hurricane Katrina was accomplished for many reasons and involves many interests, as anything this historical is::
1. Take heat off Sheenhan/Iraq, protecting profitable war machine/private war contracts
2. Gentrification. New Orleans median home price of $84k is among the lowest in major American cities, certainly among desirable cities.






Our society gives clues to the system in place. We all have heard the saying "He has more money than god." There is also an episode of the Simpsons where god meets Homer and says "I'm too old and rich for this."

This is the system on earth because this is the system everywhere.
god is evil because of money.

I don't want to suggest the upper eschelons are evil and good is the fringe.


But they have made it abundantly clear that doing business with evil won't help people. They say only good would have the ear, since evil is struggling for survival, and therefore only good could help me.

The clues are there which companies are good and which are evil, but they conceal it very hard because it is so crucial.

I offer an example of historical proportions:::


People point to Walmart and cry "anti-union".

Unions enable disfavored people to live satisfactorly without addressing their disfavor. This way their family's problems are never resolved. Without the union they would have to accept the heirarchy, their own inferiority.

Unions serve to empower.

Walmart is anti-union because they are good. They try to help people address and resolve their problems.

Media ridicule and lawsuits are creations to reinforce people's belief that Walmart is evil.




Amercia is a country of castoffs, rejects. Italy sent its criminals. Malcontents.
Between the thrones, the klans and kindred, they "decided" who they didn't want and acted, creating discontent and/or starvation.
The u.s. is full of disfavored rejects. As far as the Rockafellers and other industrialists of the 19th century go, I suspect these aren't their real names. I suspect they were chosen to go and head this new empire.


Jesus Christ is a religious figure of evil. These seperatist churches formed so they could still capture the rest of the white people, keeping them worshipping the wrong god.
And now they do it to people of color, Latinos and Asians, after centuries of preying upon them.


Since Buddism doesn't recongnize a god, the calls are never heard, and Chinese representation is instead selected by the thrones.
It was set up this way. Perhaps dyanstic thrones had a say, but maybe not.
Budda was the Asian's Jesus Christ::: bad for the people. "They came up at the same time for a reason."



Simpson's foreshadowing::Helloween IV special, Flanders is Satan. "Last one you ever suspect."
"You'll see lots of nuns where you're going:::hell!!!" St. Wigham, Helloween VI, missionary work, destroying cultures.
Over and over, the Simpsons was a source of education and enlightenment, a target of ridicule by the system which wishes to conceal its secrets.


Jews maim the body formed in the image of "god", and inflicted circumsision upon all other white people. I believe Islam is the one true religion, and those misled christians who attack "god's" most favored people will pay for it dearly one day.
