    Why does something need a benefit to be able to be bought?

    You know I was thinking we should ban rocks. I mean what is the benefit of rocks? People throw them at each other and pile them up. What is the benefit of that? They should be banned. I'm not sure how exactly it would be enforced but the government can figure something out.

    As long as we allow people to choose ignorance, we will have a welfare class.

    Taxpayers are supporting 2 of my siblings, have been for decades. I am grateful for that, otherwise I would have to support them...

    Hardly. There is no obligation to subsidize ignorance. If someone is ignorant they should pay for it. Why should I, why should you, why should anyone? Because its wrong they suffer? Why is it wrong they suffer from their ignorance? Its not, in fact its right.

    There doesn't need to be and there isn't going to be any sort of quality in the product as long as its illegal.
