In the Libertarian Utopia, you only get to have what you can pay cash out of pocket for. From the wilds of Arizona:
Justin Purcell and his family were out of their home in Surprise, Arizona when flames engulfed it in August. As reported by KSAZ Fox 10, by the time Justin arrived home with his family the firefighters were losing the battle to save the home. The cause of the fire was unknown. Justin told the station, "It's definitely a shocker when you come back and your house is gone." But Justin was in for another shock when two weeks later he received a bill from Rural Metro Fire Department, a private department, charging him $19,825 for their services in his unincorporated area that has no fire coverage. "Definitely was a surprise. It was a shocker when we got that," said Justin.
Read the whole story here. Oddly, Purcell seems to be questioning the price not the whole idea that if your house is on fire you’d better be sure you have the money on hand before calling the fire department.
Here in the land of the weak and dependent, we pay taxes for this. But, then, we’re parasites.
