Actually "free loader problem" is common parlance describing the same dynamic with most interest groups. You can find it in Political Science 101 textbooks.

So you can kindly get down from the cross.

Am I a freeloader if I object to paying for and maintaining something I don't even want?

I am by your definition. I get all of the "benefits" of working in an office with a fish tank even though these "benefits" have a negative value to me.

Cry all you want about the unworkable business model of unions. It's not my problem.
Yet another shit analogy by Saul Good.

I really wanted to engage you on this subject, too, since you clearly have a personal angle on the whole issue.

I'm still very much interested, if you've got some arguments that don't rely on your analogies, which are and have been historically terrible.
