Quote :
A toy robot was blown to pieces yesterday evening in Denver by local police after a long, tense stand-off between the law enforcers and the eight-inch tall figurine.

The department's bomb squad were called in to take care of the 'suspicious object', which was cemented to the base of a pillar supporting a footbridge.

Yakstopher:

It's the logical extension of the incongruous fiction called "public property"—an oxymoronic term whose idiocy trumps even "Congressional ethics" and "political science". If everyone owns it, no one owns it. The only way to protect it is to make it inaccessible to everyone...meaning "the public". And so, the very concept is self-eradicating.

It's an idea that is broken from the get-go. It seems to work as long as most people behave themselves. But in the declining stages of a civilization, when the state's ability to masquerade as actual government begins to seriously erode, they have to crank up the repression. One form of that repression is diminished access to "public property".

There's no other choice. It's a natural consequence of a non-proprietary civilizational structure, wherein authority is not accompanied by commensurate responsibility.
