Sharing is Caring? Not so much...
What really gave the United States the power to prosper?
John Stossel shows us "The Tragedy of The Commons"
I have argued this for a long time. Things that are "publicly owned" or "government provided" do not result in success. No one takes care of anything. There is no incentive to maximize productivity or control budgets.
I always use this example when it comes to welfare, government education, and government healthcare:
When I pay for my own lunch, I take the price of the item into consideration when I make my purchase, I am using my own money...I think about what my budget is and what I can afford. When I go to lunch that is paid for by my company expense account (a "3rd party" or "the public money"), I order what I want, with no consideration for price.
When you are dealing with your own property and your own money, it breeds prosperity and wise decision making. Private ownership of roads, hospitals, schools, wildlife, emergency services, etc...would only make those things better. For Generation X to have a chance, we have to fight for our private property rights.
