ron paul wants lawlessness among markets. hes a pure neoliberal. in his ideology he feels humans will act moral with market forces.
i would argue markets are not all the same, and some have much more power than others, creating a system which is tempting to say the least...
imagine if we deregulated the highway or all traffic regulations... well yeah, just think of that scenario for 60 seconds..
Yes the plastic dog schit market is not the same to you....as it is to the guy who sells, or buys, plastic dog schit.
No different than the FCOJ market is not the same to you....as it is to the people who buy and sell that.
However, ALL markets operate under the same general rules, and, Ron Paul is merely stating that fact.
The only time those rules change, or are effected, is when government gets involved. The precise reason the government gets involved is to make markets unfair, so that they can accomplish some agenda. If you want fairer markets, make them free markets. The freer a market is, the more likely it is to be fair.
These "fair trade" clowns don't understand that by creating perceived "fairness" in one segment of a market, they create unfairness in another.
Who got hurt by the "luxury tax" on private, high end yachts? Not the rich people. No. The middle class/poor people who build them were crushed by that tax. Nice work, clowns.
We don't need government stooges, or well meaning activist stooges, coming in and screwing things up. All that must be done is to have entrepreneurs see a market weakness, or, "unfairness" and exploit it.
Competition is the key. And before you say it, no, trusts, like the old Microsoft or Ma Bell, are NOT free trade. Of course we need laws that protect against that. But, we already have them.
What we don't need, is more meddling by idiots, like with what happened with the yacht tax.
