    I didn't say they were. But they are free to sell their property to whomever they want, and they are free to reap the benefits from the sweat of their brow.

    Any other non sequiturs you want to throw in here? Or are we done with tangents?

    It's true, there are many people out there unwilling to use their consumer power properly to regulate businesses and business practices. Lazy people who then turn to government and it's "boot" you love so much because they're unwilling to do what is necessary to intelligently interact with the system beforehand. But sadly, we also are listening to them. Same people, really, as the entitled jerks.

    No, they are not. Talk about a frickin non sequitur.

    If the doctor wasn't there he would have still died. Sorry but that's the risk you take in free society, somebody may not wish to serve you even a doctor.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

    And you believe in magic. There have been people that existed in this "before government" stage that nevertheless could not be treated with dignity, no matter the voice they put out. Oh well, moral suasion is bound to work sometime.

    And specifically what nationality, or is it all of them?

    I don't believe in magic. I believe in freedom, responsibility, and consequences

    That's not a free society but an oppressed one if you happen to be on the receiving end of hate.
