Ted Koppel on Privatization

Tonya Britton -· “…I’m all for business. I’ve spent the past 15 years working tirelessly on behalf of business – big business, small business. corporations. mom & pops. retail. restaurants. the service industry. manufacturing. healthcare. I just think there are some things in this world that do not need to be run by companies and churches. There are some things that just need to be owned and operated – by the people, for the people, on behalf of the people.

“…Privatizing services creates an inherent conflict of interest and a disproportionate impact on members within the population. In short, privatization skews the moral compass and no just society can exist when the good of the people is obscured and the demands of the constitution are subordinated by private interest.”
