Do politicians, who are profit and power hungry individuals, care for the constitution? NO!anomaly said:Will companies, each led by a single, profit hungry individual, really care about the constitution. I believe you should seriously consider the morality and merit of these CEOs you trust so mightily before continuing on this 'libertarian' path.
At least CEOs are bound by law.
Politicians can just change it.
The New Deal was unconstitutional, and only passed because of FDR's evil deeds.anomaly said:In the USA, we can thank for our good cozy lives largely the New Deal.
When first presented to the Supreme Court, the New Deal was ousted as being obviously unconstitutional.
But good ol' FDR liked to bend the rules just like any corrupt politician!
Because the Constitution never explicitly states how many judges are to be on the Supreme Court, only that the President appoints them, FDR THREATENED to appoint as many as 45 liberal judges to the Supreme Court to make his proposition pass. Interestingly, the Supreme Court then ruled that this New Deal was somehow Constitutional.
There's plenty of things people don't do because they aren't allowed to!anomaly said:And how will you stop them? You wish to give them all the power, and in giving them this much, you cannot expect perfection out of them, especially when the public doesn't vote for them.
This is no different.
If I steal all of Bill Gates money and distribute it evenly among the population, am I doing good and increasing freedom?anomaly said:Limiting freedoms is quite a general and vague phrase. I can name plenty of laws, though, that have improved living standards, improved worker's rights/standards, and helped ensure a more equal distribution of wealth in society. But, here's a law that gave more freedom to people: The 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision increased freedom in public schools. In FDR's New Deal, a few laws were passed ensuring workers the freedom to organise unions. So, laws are not all bad, and a great many of them are neccesary in modern society.
NOT ONE BIT!
I am a crook who would be put up on trial, and the only thing I'd be doing is infringing on Bill Gates' rights.
All money needed to run the country's justice systems would come out of the criminals' pockets. You do the crime, you pay for what you've done. Including the need for police and courts.anomaly said:By who? We'd have no taxes to fund a police force. We'd have no taxes to fund jails either. And the government would be powerless to control CEOs.
What then?anomaly said:And when the majority of workers (who have been treated poorly by their bosses) use their freedom to leave your libertarian state...what then?
The bosses get a big slap in the face!
That's when they realize, HEY! I better treat my workers good or I'll run out of business.
So from then on all smart, successful businesses would be kind to workers so they remain profitable and happy.
And all without the gang of government interfering with our lives!
