    This argument against the collection of Union dues has several defects in logic. Collective bargaining is time consuming, and can be compared to lawyer/client relationship: unless your lawyer is a ‘public employee’ representing an indigent in a criminal case; you can only expect to get what you pay for. The ‘libertarian’ view of subjects are illogical when opened for revue and pander to the Oligarchy giving it complete control when the intelligent approach is abandoned. Unions when void of corruption give their members a collective voice and the power it deserves. In addition, Union dues are “tax deductible” in the same manner as legal fees. Mr. Petro and his supporters only fool themselves and their followers, his departure should represent a matter for such critical reflection and by all evidence; he offered no viable alternative to submission to the Oligarchy that humanity is most often in the habit of forming all throughout history, in every aspect of human interaction. Libertarianism, like conservatism, is a flawed doctrine since it refuses to learn from its mistakes, and as a result is forced to repeat them; which is a fatal flaw.
