    I am talking about in general. If you don't like my rhetorical example, then fine. In general do you agree or disagree with this statement:

    If it is less expensive for a company to not implement a pollution control or other environmental protection measure, then absent a regulation requiring them to do so, they won't do it. There are no shareholder revolts demanding worker protections or environmental protections.

    Re: Which economic system is the best to you?

    A system in which:
    • All means of production are privately owned.
    • All transfers of property titles (except as noted below regarding taxes) are voluntary and consensual.
    • The government's ONLY legitimate function is protecting person, property, and individual liberty.
    • Government intervention in the economy consist ONLY of resolving disputes between individuals over violations of person, property, and individual liberty.
    • The government may tax (transfer ownership of goods to itself) in order to fulfill this duty only.
    • Taxes are forbidden to be collected for any other purpose.

    It comes down, as per usual, to throwing around definitions with no knowledge of the subject matter.

    No I find it silly that they deny so that don't have to accept the fact the communist is doomed to fail.

    government lead, like we have now. but if were up to me, there would be many more restrictions on how its used so it wouldn't be a way of life. If people were on welfare in my world, they would be working for it.
