“Privatization”

When you hear the word “privatize” what that means is that politicians want to give their corporate buddies permission to use your tax money for stock market speculation and for their own personal profit. We are the only industrialized nation that relies on for-profit health insurance. We have privatized, for-profit, prisons – which… just think about THAT for a minute. The Pres-Elect has chosen as his nominee for Health and Human Services a man who wants to privatize social security. And the Pres-elect wants a woman as Sec of Education who has never attended public school herself, whose children never attended public school, who’s never been a teacher or principal, and whose main goal in regards to education has been to “privatize” it.

Ahem. I have some concerns.

Alrighty. Carry on then…

  1. Privatize does not automatically mean for profit. It means the transfer from public to private ownership. I’m not convinced that’s a bad thing, but we do ned to distinguish between for-profit and not-for-profit.
