"Every time one person amasses a fortune worth a billion pounds, we are witnessing a policy failure."
@sillystring exactly. I would not want the government to own the means of production, just like I would not want a single corporate behemoth to own and control them.
It doesn't really matter which behemoth owns it all. Power corrupts.
We must avoid behemoths owning it all (or a large part of it all), regardless if they happen to be governments, companies, individuals, NGOs, or, you know, cats.
@sillystring just to clarify: I am not against governments, companies, individuals, NGOs, or cats existing or owning *some* of the means of production and having *some* influence.
But that influence needs to be checked and that ownership needs to be limited in the scope. Owning a few bakeries? Fine. Owning a substantial enough number of bakeries to influence health policy in a negative way? Very much not fine.
And yes, "substantial enough" and "negative way" are vague. Because life's vague.
