Probably 50 million Brits own a computer. I could set up a shop selling computers and software to any person I wanted. Anyone is allowed to use a computer.
But imagine the 'capitalists' wanted to do to computing what they did to housing. The government would restrict sales of computers, say to 1 million a year, instead of 10 million currently. And only a few politically connected companies would have the rights to sell them.
Instead of 50 million Brits owning a computer, only 10 million would be allowed. You would have to purchase a license in order to own a computer. Only the richest people could afford to, by outbidding the other people. The winners would be the people who had the licenses. Which would be determined randomly at birth to start.
But then 'investors' would be allowed to purchase the licenses. And lease them out to people who wanted to the highest bidders who wanted or needed to use a computer. They then would make a profit when the value of the license 'appreciated'. And of course to buy a license you would surely need to take out a bank loan. Then through the leases you could make the monthly payment on your loan. The banker would be a happier man.
Needless to say it would be sick to restrict computing in this way. But that is exactly what Britain does with a basic human need.. shelter. Actually Britain does this in most areas of life. Computing is the exception that is useful in showing how idiotic this way of setting up your economy is. (and why Britain has no hope in hell of competing in a global economy, when we have so many parasites sucking us down every step of the way).
