For statists, I'm interested in hearing your argument for state-run fire departments.

For libertarians and anarchists, I'm interested in hearing your argument for market-run or community-run fire departments.

I'm still a waffler between MODERATE libertarianism, night-watchman libertarianism, and anarchism, so I have no clue, lol.

Sure, what's up? I don't consider you below me; we're all cut from the same cloth.

You've been ignoring me utterly for like the past few weeks.

Do you think private road and highway companies would make arrangements with the fire departments to allow them to drive on their property in order to reach the emergencies quickly?

Sorry! I wasn't aware, been on vacation in Wisconsin and Chicago. What did you want to talk about? You can PM me if you want.

Nothing really. You just weren't responding my comments.

I think that they might have their own fire services, and charge the people dependent on the roads they own for them.

I think it'd be likely, for public relations reason - looks bad to keep emergency services from being as quick as possible, Of course, there are always hangups and business mishaps.

Like I said, I was on vacation and I also rarely get on DDO. Add me on fb and join the DDO fb group.

Why did you pass through Wheeling?

I was visiting my father's friend. He lives up in the mountains.

I haven't seen arguments from either side really but I support fire departments being ran by local governments. In other words, provided as a public service.
