    No, I mean the rich.

    And there's no limitation on economic production. Just limits on hoarding.

    Let the private sector breathe a little; then you might have money for lending books.

    No they don't. They sink them into financial instruments, which are nothing more than fancy imaginary mattresses.

    Except that there would be no incentive for the debtor if proceeds were locked away. Besides, it's not easy to argue that private money is better spent by the politicized, inefficient state; and even more difficult to argue that library funding, however popular, should be propped up by targeting individuals with more money than others.

    Finally someone with the balls to make cuts.

    I don't give a damn that it's the library system. People would bitch and moan no matter what was cut. And if no cuts were made, they'd bitch and moan about rampant spending. In conclusion, fuck people.

    Your philosophy doesn't operate very well with the concept of politics.

    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    My philosophy doesn't mesh with a steaming mound of donkey dung?

    ...I'll take that as a compliment.
