1st, if you consider wiki as "authority" for anything, you've got zero credibility in the real world.
2nd, to say you are all for an individual, but then speak in terms of the "public" you are posing:
When something can potentially impact the public, its money, health, security and especially the Implied Trust of Societies systems, I think it
is governments role to side with the greater population thru legislation.
Spoken like a true socialist, not a libertarian. What money does the "public" own? What "systems" are you "implying" should be trusted? Those
that suit you?
You think it is government's role to favor one person or group over another?
One sex? One color? One language? One faith?
You make yourself quite clear. Quit pretending to be some voice of reason.
Your philosophy and your vision of governance are bankrupt.
I also do NOT think any company is afforded the same rights as an individual.
In the United States of America, a partnership, association, and corporation are given the status of "person" for the transaction of business and
the ownership of property.
In marxist and communist systems they are not. In fascism, they are PARTNERS of the government. Suits you to a "T" doesn't it?
What other "persons" do you believe do not have certain rights in the USA? Only those who don't look and think and sound like you?
Just because something is monitized does not always mean it should be protected if it creates detriment to society.
I can agree in part with this, but please explain then, why Barack Obama is allowing the U.S. Treasury and the Federal Reserve to
"monetize" the treasury's debt
This is YOUR "lefty" government monetizing debt that no one else will buy, so that more cash flows to the mega-banks and into Wall Street
keep the stock markets up despite the failed economic disaster they have created. Debt that has to be covered with INDIVIDUALS' earnings and tax
Of course, the mega banks hedge their investments, but the average retiree and 401k pensioner are being KILLED by this market manipulation.
You really just have no idea what to say, except what you think the liberal gospel requires you to. When you get a grownup to explain things to you,
try posting something logically consistent and reality-based.
