    It's probably the only thing I agree with Rand Paul on. Let private businesses run themselves as crappy as they want to. Out them for their policies and let the people decide.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    That would due to social laws. Unwritten laws.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Rules we live by that aren't codified. Every society has them. They function much like you described.

    Each person is the rightful owner of his own body, and he may use it in any way as long as he don't use it to initiate aggression against others. For people to tell him how he must use his body (do business with someone) is an initiation of aggression against him. Such action is unjust and unethical.

    Maybe this will help:


    Unwritten rules, principles, and norms that have the effect and force of law though they have not been formally enacted by the government.
    unwritten law legal definition of unwritten law. unwritten law synonyms by the Free Online Law Dictionary.
