It seems like the message the mainstream is getting from recent events is "This is why we need financial regulation."

And, let's be fair, there is a LOT of crime in our little community.  You can protect yourself pretty well by taking the right precautions, but a ton of wealth is being transferred to the hands of criminals.

Of course the obvious retort is "the mainstream financial system robs you too", but I'm wondering if anyone has any more comforting thoughts than that.

That doesn't really help very much.  It shows that even a perfect system doesn't stop people from being preyed on.  In the minds of the mainstream, the obvious conclusion is that we need more government.

Well, I'm glad you feel that way, but it isn't how most people think.
