    "Sweatshops" lure people off tne streets, it helps them them not having to become prostitutes or criminals and it helps them from breaking their backs at the farm.


    Another argument founded on marxist garbage theories. People like you always seem to forget that it is the consumer who is the protagknist of the market; if there is no demand for a product the producer behind it will die. A factory that kills its workets would not only lose efficiency (dying workefs=lower production), but also would they lose reputation and thus also lose customers.

    The pollution myth is yet another example of socialist bollox. IF infact pollution is a problem, the only thing that can save the planet is free-market-capitalism. New energy sources and new research is always the products of capitalism.
    Socialist bollocks? Socialism has to deal with establishing a social order, so every nation that exists, and there are 197 of them currently, have an established social order. This includes the United States or [North] America. All you have to do is look up social and you will notice this very reality. Pollution has an effect on social order, but beyond that, I do not see the correlation. Marxism and Communism are forms of social orders. In the Communist Manifesto, what Marx proposed was a social order that would facilitate Communism. This is exact, being that all economic and political systems are extensions of social orders.

    I voted yes, being that "markets" is the euphemism used for Consumers which are people. So a free people are a free market.

    So the haymarket square riots or the Homestead strike were held by people who loved their working conditions... educate yourself to keep yourself from looking so uninformed. I guess the phrase, those who forget history are doomed to repeat it applies.

    So how was acid rain reduced so that our rivers and lakes weren't destroyed? How was the ozone hole expansion ended? Why don't you study economics and learn about something called "externalities" so you don't look so ignorant on the subject. Regulation makes free markets work better, not worse.

    I have absolutelyno idea what kind of point you are trying to make here

    So how was acid rain reduced so that our rivers and lakes weren't destroyed? How was the ozone hole expansion ended?
    These problems can be solved by the free market if the demand is big enough. For example there already are electric cars out there and there are many new renewable energy sources and methods of recycling old fuels. Everything given to us by capitalism.

    Why don't you study economics and learn about something called "externalities" so you don't look so ignorant on the subject. Regulation makes free markets work better, not worse.
    I already mentioned property rights, didn't I? That's how to prevent it.

    As a zealous Anarcho-Capitalist, I worship the notion of "the freer the market, the freer the people" as it is obvious that a completely deregulated market means more freedom for the individual.
    You are asking two separate questions, whether the market should be deregulated, and whether deregulation makes us freer.

    Laws and regulations almost always take away freedoms, but some of those laws are good for us all the same. Not being allowed to build your own nuke is a loss of freedom, but it is a good prohibition.
