Rather than a fiscal crisis, Nevada suffers a crisis of greed, selfishness and stupidity. The state's elementary and secondary public education system, its universities and its other public services -- notably child welfare, health and mental health -- are already among the most poorly funded and weakest in the nation. Yet this wealthy state is currently in the process of further reducing its commitment to public services.
No one should be forced to work for someone else.
John Locke wrote,
"Though the earth and all inferior creatures be common [as the gift from God] to all men, yet every man has a 'property' in his own 'person'. This, nobody has any right to but himself. The 'labor' of his body and the 'work' of his hands, we may say , are properly his."
In the Federalist no. 79, Alexander Hamilton wrote,
"In the general course of human nature a power over a man's subsistence amounts to a power over his will."
In the Federalist no. 73, Alexander Hamilton wrote,
In the main it will be found that a power over the man's support is a power over his will."
As it is we work almost 6 months a year to pay all the various taxes that we have to pay. We are like the serfs under feudalism.
