Know the enemies of a civil society by their public behaviour, by their fraudulent claim to be liberal-progressive, by their propensity to lie and, above all, by their attachment to authoritarianism.

But on the other hand, I don't like to see people who have invested their life earnings in a govt-licensed business model being sabotaged by unfair competition.

And while I might be private enterprise, I am not sharing economy. It smacks too much of underground leftist economics to me and, as such, usually ends up with a few nasty people walking away with a fortune and leaving wreckage in their wake.

I agree, I think the govt. should compensate them. After all, the govt, charged them the ridiculous fees to start with

Uber will come unstuck in Australia.  I know how well any Uber driver would fare here on the Coast.  The least of his worries would be a citizen's arrest.

Mr Smith I do hope your vehicle is not damaged by the negligent operation of a Uber 'taxi.'  Unless that driver has plenty long pockets, you'll be whistling dixie trying to get your car repaired at his expense.  They do not have commercial vehicle insurance.

There are many reasons why you Mr Smith ought be concerned about them, but I doubt there is much point me pointing them out to you, give your pathetic attitude.

Don't care, I'm fully covered, the rest is my insurance companies problem, not mine.

If you're a stock market investor in any of these sectors, you take your risks or rewards. Totally different thing from the likes of Uber.

Further...on that point that you have insurance.  Your premiums are likely to rise if Uber gets a real hold as there will then be a greater risk as more uninsured cars will be on the road and likely to damage your property.
