I’ve just had a fantastic idea, why don’t we just abandon all public assets and hand them straight over to the private sector and be done with it now. There’s little point dragging this out any longer when it’s clearly a foregone conclusion, we may as well rip-off the band-aid quickly than peel it away inch by inch, drawing out the pain over a longer period.
Normally, I would have been the first to stand and fight for the public to retain their public services and assets, but clearly they can’t manage them as well as the private sector can. Here’s an example, just look at the kinds of award winning buildings the private schools are putting in. Evidently, they are far more efficient than public schools, who seem to be in a state of constant disrepair.
Despite my reservations, it looks like our government have been correct all along, we shouldn’t be resisting the lure of privatisation any more.
It has become as clear as daylight to me that we need for the government to stop funding all public services because they are simply too inefficient, roads, education, health, police, water, electricity, the lot! All can easily be just handed over to the private sector where they can run them all with ruthless efficiency AND make a tidy profit for those willing to assume the risks, something the feckless governments seem unable to do.
So now is the time. No more dilly-dallying, no more vacillating, no more unnecessary community consultation and pointless objections, strike while the iron is hot and the public have their backs turned watching the footy, and privatise the lot! Everything, the job lot. Sack all those useless public servants and invite the private sector in to run the show. Stop collecting taxes that are only going to be used to for dole payments, or for single mothers to have babies to 8 different fathers, or to keep illegal asylum seekers in the lap of luxury with their 27 wives and 67 kids, all getting more in benefits that war veterans. That’s right, shaft ’em all and make ’em work properly instead of lazing around in best until lunch time.
Revolutionary idea I hear you say. Well thanks!
But how would this work? Ha! That’s the easy part – we simply adopt a User-Pays system where you only pay for the things YOU use and you don’t have to pay from anyone else. How good would that be? No more paying for refugees or gay marriage and stuff like that. Instead, all the money you earn would all go straight to you, instead of ripped away as tax by the useless government and you’d only ever have to pay for the stuff you use. It’s called Libertarianism and a dream come true. Let’s have a look…
Going to work will be much easier now, you’ll just need to get a tollway pass for each separate section of privatised road you want to travel along. Of course we couldn’t allow a monopoly to form over the roads because monopolies are bad for competition, so different roads will be owned by different operators, each charging different tolls and using different billing systems and RF tags, so you’ll need a different tag for each road. If you don’t have a tag, don’t worry, you’ll simply get a bill in the mail for the cost of the trip plus an administration charge for each kilometre you travelled.
Oh regarding the mail, you won’t be getting deliveries straight to your door every day because that is so old fashioned and completely inefficient.

We do however offer a convenient home delivery service for a yearly subscription of only $6oo and a modest delivery fee of only $19.95 per item. Mail will only be delivered during business hours and must be signed-for or you will incur an additional handling fee of $7.95. You may request your mail be delivered within a specified 6-hour window by subscribing to our premium mail service for an additional $60.00 per month.

Well, how was that? A small but pleasant taste of our future in which we won’t have to pay taxes and where we will only have to pay for the things we use. Sounds good to me, not having to pay for all those other people, those dole bludgers, the social sponges who can’t be bothered working hard and getting a good job like me. No more subsidising cripples, single mothers having babies to 8 different fathers or housing scarf-wearing refugees, their 12 wives and 54 children, all living in the lap of luxury.
I say to the government, let’s do it! Have some balls and rip-off that public service/public assets band-aid now. The sooner we privatise things and allow the far more efficient private sector to run things, the better off we will all be.
