Regulating things keeps the bar fair and more can participate, without such regulations you see an ever increasing monopoly of owners for goods and services just like the antebellum south: my family was in the south prior to revolution and on both sides of the civil war, so through a study of their participation since then the story gets very deep and quite clear and that is what I'm relating to you here; and the rich should not have all the money nor all the control, that's the entire point. It was a problem then that needed overcoming and it's a problem today that needs overcoming.

    Btw, the sulfuric acid that you bought should be kept a record of, just like contractors who buy dynamite. If you don't like that, then don't buy dangerous stuff.

    Back to the south and the Kochs; there's no need for you to feel uncomfortable in discussing the issue and it's historic relevance; and what did you find amusing about my commentary on the south?

    So the freedom Koch sees you call control. And the regulation you seek you call freedom.

    Amazing, simply amazing.

    The Kocks want individual liberty. Why do you oppose that?
