I have yet to see any direct evidence of that.

This is assuming regulations means provisions provided by a government monopoly and not regulations provided without force.

What in fuck's name would a "regulation without force" do or accomplish?

And honestly what the fuck is a "government monopoly", and how do you have no concept of what a Social Contract is and how it works?

Couldn't help myself, Jeffk, but...

It's not THAT hard.

Ok, of course "government monopoly" is a really long and complicated search term and all that and really Google should be expected to know what we are looking for when googling for "government monopoly" and...

oh wait... it does....

Fun fact: Donald Rumsfeld was once part of the FDA.

I still don't understand why he thinks this is an actual valid description of what the government does, there is a reason there are parts of our society that we do not trust to private groups (especially regulation), but fuck if that will ever get through to the Atlastron 4000

It seems the free-market is already regulating itself by making these berries an issue.

But what if you didn't have an internet forum to correct your knowledge of this product and saw it on store shelves? should you have to go home and research every brand you buy before you get it?

No, I simply buy products from reputable grocery stores that haven't gone out of business from selling bad products.

Quick question.  How do you think those products end up on those store shelves?

Also, these strawberries just look gross.  I wouldn't give those to my dogs.

This quote from SA preatty much summarizes this entire thread.

Don't get it twisted, I disagree with 90% of the shit these people spew. However, in between the 90% of the pure shit they post, there does lie some truth.

We should not be focused on selling dried "bit-berries"...

What we should be focused on is building revolutionary apps and services that accept Bitcoin.

I'm just going to point out that atlas's idea of government wrongdoing is when a coal company dumps radioactive, carcinogenic ash slurry into a river upstream of a water purification plant because government regulations weren't enforced (against dumping toxic waste in rivers) he will blame the government becuase he has some wierd notion that if those laws against dumping toxic waste in the river didn't exist the coal company wouldn't have done so in the first place.

Yes because accountable regulation would exist as opposed to regulatory monopolies that cannot fail and be easily displaced.

Not quite-- I still don't know who's making them.

That is why you buy them anyways. If you get sick, you will know not to buy from the seller again. Or if you die from food poisoning, your family will know not to buy from the seller.

Libertarianism, in all it's glory. O how my heart yearns to try all those things that my oppressive government thinks are 'dangerous' to be mixed in with my food and pharmaceuticals. If I want to use mercury to homeopathically cure my brain tumor, goddamn it, I should be able to buy it from a basement pharmacist. Prop 215 can suck it. Lead paint for life.

I have yet to see any direct evidence of that.

Read 'The Jungle', son.

So what you're saying is if another unaccountable private company (with no interested in protecting any of the national and public resources, mind) regulates another private companies dumping of toxic waste in a public and national resource this will be the perfect outcome?

Ah but the private company will be accountable assuming its being supported by paying constituents. If people desire clean environments and contract a company to keep said environments in check, a company failing to keep its part of the contract will not be paid and thus be quickly displaced by one that meets the desires of its constituents.

I don't remember ever having time to go down to my local slurry pit and asking the regulatory team there to have all the gear provided to me to perform an audit of it's services.

Maybe I could hire another unaccountable private company to audit the first unaccountable private accountancy company?

Yes, most alternate political and economic theories assume that people want to take personal responsibility. Instead of ridiculing people who question the status quo, we should be thinking of alternative proposals to their faulty ones.

Heh if such rigorous regulation for slurpees was truly desirable people would pay for it. Also, said regulatory body would be accountable to the customers paying for its services. If they don't trust them nor desire them , they will not be reimbursed and thus cease to exist.
