When I think of the reach and scope of what Google does and is capable of, I always get to the conclusion that it should be like a public good funded through taxes. Libertarians will argue no way we’re leaving something like this in the hands of the state, but then they’ll propose we leave it in the hands of a small board of old capitalist men and male white engineers in their 20s and 30s? Yes, it should be a common good run by a group of delegates elected for terms of defined length.
