|Dean said "It seems like most people I talk to do not think that the services provided by the government could be converted to the private sector. My friend argued that "Police, military, administration service(Secretary of state), UPS, medicare, library, public transportation system, cleaning of public area, schools, and so on and so forth are funded through a government which is funded by taxes we pay. So no tax, no service."|
Police, Military, Courts (I think this is administrative) - this is correct from a Minarchist and Objectivist view - they must be govt. funded in some fashion through fees or taxation.
UPS is a private company :) - you answered your own question! However, I assume you meant the USPS, but in any case it is very clear to any person mail can and is delivered by private carriers already, the USPS has a monopoly granted by the govt. to handle all 1st class mail, however. This should be eliminated.
Medicare? - It is called Insurance, we have that. This is mandatory insurance that is funded by legalized theft.
Library? - I think you can get books at amazon.com? You have libraries available at Universities, and no reason a fee-based library can't be created. It should not be funded by the public.
Schools, Public Transportation? - These can and are done better and cheaper by private means. Anyone should be allowed to buy a van and sell transport at any price whatsoever - instead of state-granted monopolies (taxis) and money-losing public transport systems (paid by taxpayers and by riders). Schools should be private, you have 8,000 ways to educate - yourself, the internet, small groups in communities, wow think of how much better and varied it could be! There are whole reams of articles here and linked from here about all of this. Read up!
