Your assertion was "Well, Carnegie isn't alive today, so your position effectively means no libraries should be built."

Feel free to explain the logic behind this assertion.


Thank you. I will then. I'll try to use little words here.

There's no one alive today with Carnegie's wealth. Yes, Gates supports a lot of charities, but I doubt even he could afford to build or maintain a library in every town.

So, reasonable citizens (hint: that's not you!) would agree that building and maintaining a library should be a function of the local government
