    In an unregulated free market, you could buy milk, drink it and fucking die because it had poison in it.

      Yeah of course thats why there are regulations in place. Nobldy would trust that milj seller again though, so for cases that are not as bad as a human life being ended, the system would still work…

            Of course not! Free markets are great, they allow me to make money however I please. But if you’re gonna regulate my business, at least leave me the opportunity to exploit my workers to some extent. I won’t be made obsolete by some stoner beatniks who think they can run my business better than I can in some high-falutin’ democracy. I own this place. It’s mine. I bought it with my own bank account.
