Because the modern world is built on inferstucture..
You can’t just elbow grease all the wires and satellites required to run an isp.
Plus, you don’t want one person running huge sections of our inferstucture with impunity..
The government IS us.. we run for office, we vote them in.. if it’s a bad one we can vote them out..
If the only electric company is run by one family.. there is no voting them out..
So you acknowledge it's not that easy to set up your own electricity company.
In fact for utility industries like that it's impossible for most people.
So your suggest that he started his own was just really a glib comeback with no basis in reality.
The person stomping his feet and complaining here is you about 'statists'.
No for most people it would be impossible. To believe otherwise is frankly idiotic.
My point is some things don’t work better , when ran by a private intrest.. once a sector becomes too big to fail. You don’t want to leave that in the hands of one person/family/whatever..
Take law enforcement, the military or fire fighters..
Private armies and police forces would be a total disaster.
There would be no “removing “ the chief of police if it is a private company , owned by one person..
Whatever his policies were, it would stand until someone fight a war to oust him..
