Just to let everyone know Smiley. It mostly talks about the Silk Road though.

I would say that when there isn't enough police, judges, and courts to tackle the amount of illegal behavior, someone has gone and made too much stuff illegal. It's all fine and dandy until they regulate something you use every day, right? Watching the news the other night, I hear they are considering regulating sugar. Thank god we have the governments to protect ourselves from ourselves, most of us would be dead without them.  Shocked

Everything becoming illegal is the initial step in the agorist revolution.  Once everything is illegal the only way to survive is to participate in grey markets.  Once people participate in grey markets then they lose respect for the state.  Once people lose respect for the state, the state becomes obsolete.  Once the state becomes obsolete...

No just dark.  You are likely to be eaten by a grue.  


I would recommend bringing a lantern when visiting the dark net.

Which country's laws is the moderator referring to? I ask merely for information. If you are referring to Chinese law, for example, I wouldn't want to link to http://google.com.

Agreed, systems where whatever isn't illegal is compulsory tend not to last very long. Unfortunately, they can last longer than an average human lifetime, which makes it really bad to get caught in one.

Correct... until the youth grow up with spineless parents.  That generation won't easily hand over their dignity.
