Gee, Lou, I guess we should all be grateful that people like you (and
the Eurocrats in Brussels) are so smart that you know exactly how the
world should work. And you're so selfless and generous that you don't
mind speaking for "the people" and making all the decisions for the rest
of us. AAnd you're so pragmatic that you won't let old-fashioned ideas
like property rights stop you from forcing everyone to do it your way --
under penalty of fines, imprisonment, ... perhaps re-education?

Katie, thank you very much for your wonderful remarks:
