Some goods and services are so important to us all that their provision must be guaranteed. These we may call strategic goods and services.

Finance, Insurance and Real Estate [FIRE] which we all know includes banking et al, is first on my list, though not necessarily number one in importance.

Health Care including pharmaceuticals are high value services and goods.

Energy production and distribution are critical to 21st century life.

Dependable mass communications services are indispensable.

Mass transportation is required to get everything where it needs to go.

For profit providers of the strategic goods and services are increasingly failing to provide for 90% of the population. They provide profit for their investors and executives, as they fail most of the rest of us.

The obvious answer is, if we can't afford to buy what we need to live in the world they own, without lifelong debt to them, we must provide for ourselves - of, by and for the people - on a non profit basis. We need the infrastructure, properties and assets our labor has given to the ruling class of parasites, in order to survive. Capitalism is a death sentence for most of us.

The objectors are a small band: Fascist, Corporatist, Conservative, Neo-liberal. All are in the same narrow low energy belt of the political spectrum.

I was born in 1946. I noticed that the GOP was anti-human before I graduated from high school in 1964. Conservatives' self destructive greed and stupidity are a threat to the survival of the human race!
