Government inherently causes social conflict. The fact that we have public spaces causes conflict over who has the right to use them, and how.
The existence of public roads causes conflict between travelers and protesters. Who has the right to mount a pro-abortion protest? When? For how long will they tie up traffic? What about when white supremacists want to spew their racist hatred? Now we have to consider their right to express themselves on the public byways.
In any case involving the use of public property, the government resolves the conflict by weighing the value of competing holders of rights. If the rights exercised fall in disfavor, the rights are deemed less valuable and are denied. This puts us in a dangerous position — our liberties are threatened.
Private property also raises conflicts of rights issues, but these are resolved by examining contractual rights and duties, and contracts are voluntary associations. When you buy a movie ticket, you buy a right to watch the show, not to disrupt the theater by crying “fire!” On this private property, the rights are clearly defined, and if you don’t like the deal, you don’t have to take it.
Not so with public property. When the government manages public property with your taxes, you have no choice in the deal. They take your money, like it or not, and set the terms of your use of the property — parks, roads, buildings, or what have you.
Consider public education. Your taxes are used for state-run educational institutions, which creates conflict over the curriculum, spending on infrastructure, salaries, benefits, pensions, and so on. In order to control the curriculum, you have to dominate everyone else in the community. But if the school were private, you could just send your kids to the school you like. If they didn’t teach what you want, and didn’t respond to your pleas, they’d lose your business. If you don’t like the steak, you’ll go to a different steakhouse.
The solution to a host of social conflicts is simply to privatize the property on which the conflict is occurring.
