Elaboration 34

Naturally, all State-, County-, City-, services, like fire brigade, water board, ambulance, etc. are fundamentally on the principle of pooling. The citizens pool their money, in that they pay tax for these services. 'The State' is not a different body that 'provides', but the provisions 'are' citizen's property. As Spencer frequently points out, the state is often seen as a more or less unrelated body for the citizens. It needs education to tell them that it is a mere convenience of pooling. The state is not there for itself, the citizen not for the state, but the state serves the citizency.
