Tibor R. Machan is a free market philosopher - an intellectual "arguer for" Freedom and Liberty. Over at The Future of Freedom Foundation (FFF), he takes on California Senator Barbara Boxer and her collectivist mentality.
Long ago I realized government is not "by the people, for the people" after
reading signs around North Park, Allegheny County, PA. These signs noted that
fenced areas were "Property of Allegheny County, Trespassers Prosecuted."
As a resident of Allegheny County, I would have been charged with
trespassing in spite of the signs. See, the property was not mine; it was
property of the governmental entity called Allegheny County. And I could
trespass on the county’s property. The fence was a Berlin Wall that separated
government from the governed.
Note: The same holds with regard to public schools. Think they belong to the community; the people? Think again.
