In his letter “Privatization as disdain?” (Jan. 20 and TribLIVE.com), Jack Ciak has it exactly backward when he writes: “These actions also suggest what appears to be a belief on the part of the governor that Pennsylvanians are not sufficiently competent to run their own institutions.”
On the contrary, the current system in which the state micromanages such things as how many beer bottles a bar can sell reflects a philosophy in which individuals are deemed incompetent, requiring an all-powerful state, with its attendant bureaucracy, to coddle and guide citizens through life.
Such an individual-rights-trampling ideology has no place in this country.
