Comment: The scenario you laid out...

(See in situ)

The scenario you laid out...

The scenario you laid out and requested a perfect answer for is unrealistic and highly unlikely no matter the title you give your comment, and your ad hominem remarks are not necessary.

You'll need to lay out the "real possibility" more thoroughly and detailed if you want more suggestions. But to me, it seems like your mind is made up, and you're not open or receptive of new suggestions. My responses are based off the information you provided, and you simply blow off my legitimate responses to an unrealistic, hypothetical situation by saying my off-the-cuff responses are "unrealistic/highly unlikely".

There are go-getters, innovators, problem solvers, and creators....and then the rest. I can promise you, if I were in your alleged situation (which frankly, I cannot understand the logistics of it with the limited information you've provided), if I needed to be at a certain place, I would be there. Nothing would stop me, and if I don't make it there, it's my own fault or some random accident out of my control.

"I just don't like the idea of people owning throughways of commerce."

"People" do own our throughways of commerce already, collectively through a system called government. There are other more voluntary and less forceful means to a satisfactory end which, in other industries just as vital as transportation, have proven more efficient and effective.

I think the assumption that should be made is that private industry will always out perform government and that the heart of your question is better expressed as, "While recognizing the obvious benefits of private versus public ownership of property, how can we practically transition from a transportation system that has historically relied upon the confiscation of private property to make common travel routes available to the public at the expense of the property owner to a voluntary system that respected property rights of land owners?"

To that question, one might answer, try it in a small town whose citizens are willing to experiment with laws.
