Wisconsin and Stockholm Syndrome

Its going on in Wisconsin, but here in Michigan, we have our own troubles.
The unions have pretty much had their way for decades, and our proof of their successes might have labels like made in Detroit, Flint, Saginaw, etc.. Looking at those cities, one might find merely shells of what were once vibrant and very wealthy communities. Hosts to a variety of industries that our great state of Michigan once held out as shining examples of both ingenuity, and determination. People thrived, all the while unknowing that their guts were being eaten out by the parasites that care little about the health of their host.
Parasites that eagerly move along to infect the next body willing to tolerate their presence until it too is dead. And now, as we have discovered, there are fewer sanctuaries for the bubonic labor movement, and perhaps in government, it is where they will make their final stand. Either their methods will die in a bloody screaming hissy, or our state governments might. Or perhaps both.
And its truly a shame.
Man makes decisions. Its one of the pretty cool things we have been endowed by our creator with. The ability to decide, communicate, create, negotiate, all given to us as 'rights' not by government, nor by a king, nor even by a government sanctioned body like the NLRB.
Labor unions might well have a great place.
but not in the form which currently makes them up. Not in the disease state which forces their posturing from one dying industry to the next with one intent; to gain maximum advantage within the industry while protecting the weakest link within the union.
It makes little sense, but serves a feel good interest. Equalize the outcomes, and everybody is a winner as a goal. Except even equalizing the outcome for the working man, it brings great wealth to the operators of such plans. Six figure salaries common enough among the 'really good' union organizers seemingly would contradict the nature of "protecting the middle class and leveling the playing field."
As I have pointed out before, there is a way that union can serve the greater good, serve their membership, and recreate in this country what has been missing since the 'progressive' movement has hijacked labor forever ago. The will to compete; to be better; to reward the investor; to win through achievement, not mandate. I wrote:
"Michigan is blessed with many differing trade unions, but these entities produce little real result in terms of real benefit for the employees who subscribe to their services. Making the UAW, Teamsters, or any other union a "for profit" business would create a radical new environment and open the door to unlimited opportunities. The benefits of private ownership drive personal motivation, and a quest for quality in performance and result.
And I mean it.
Even in government it would work.
Imagine a small elite force of unionized government execs that know best how to structure community assets in a way that brings bang for the buck. Though it would still require HARD decision making, the process brings ownership to the results.
But we must first rid ourselves of the means which locks us into the current process. This means eliminate work rules, mandates from the federal government, binding arbitration. Until we remove those chains, no decision will ever be completely made by the stake holders in business, or government. Neither the taxpayer, nor the businessman are served in the current environment of hostage takers and taxpayer 'Stockholm sufferers' who have given in to accept their keepers as being in their best interest.
