"The only good solution is to privatize the ports. This would not mean transferring them to well-connected corporate cronies, but rather, as Brad Spangler suggests, ceding control to the people who work and use the ports and who are not tainted by the corporate state.

The other thing to do is to liquidate the empire in order to drastically reduce the odds that someone will want to do our society grave harm."
