Please tell me how sole-provider and no-bid contracts handed to a few corporations by our government is completely different from "means of production owned by the state". When government contracts like Lockheed-Martin or BoozAllenHamilton will do anything the government pays them to do, often without transparency, the net effect is the same.

Also, cite examples of any "conservatives will question the logic of solving the problem of too much power concentrating in the hands of a few corporations by further concentrating that power into the hands of a single, enormous entity." The conservatives were the ones that supported the deregulation that allowed banks to consolidate to become "too large to fail" in the first place.

I don't know about where you live, but here in Virginia, USA, most localities already provide GIS sites that provide the tax assessments and the amounts of the last few transactions on every property in the locality. So without hacking anyone's email you can see for yourself the "value" of a property. Of course "really worth" is what the buyer and seller agree on.
