Joe again:
"And who did the government sell these trees to? The corporations
whose big bucks campaign contributions and professional lobbyists persuaded same. This graft should be outlawed, and its subsequent perpetrators prosecuted. When trees are replanted, they are usually of the one harvestable type, in straight rows. To call this the maintainence of an ecosystem would be laughable, if it weren't so disastrous."

Even if this nonsense were correct, it would still argue against the efficacy of governmental management, and in favor of a free market, immune to political machinations.

"And as I have said before, communist countries were
totalitarian corporations masquerading as universal labor unions."

You obviously have in mind a rather eccentric definition of "corporation".
