> While Samsung will certainly suffer lost sales from the issuance of an injunction, the hardship to Apple of having to directly compete with Samsung’s infringing products outweighs Samsung’s harm in light of the previous findings by the Court

Won't someone PLEASE think of the consumer?

Or they can use their existing wealth to lobby the state into brining in some regulation or other (in the same of a good cause, of course) which effectively gives them an unfair advantage allowing them to increase profits without improving service like every other "successful" business in the last however many decades.

What would be the value of bombing people if you have already freed yourself of oppression?

My idea wasn't for a state structure, it is for a way to ensure that whatever the best way of doing things happen do be, it will evolve rather than just trying different things for the whole country (revolutions) until we happen to hit the right one.

All proposals for other state structures are useless.

I believe the only way to find a better system of governance, be it state or otherwise, is to give everyone the right to secession from the current state. By that I mean either moving out into the wilderness and being free from state rule, but also not having any benefits from the taxes of others, or for an entire town or people within a large area to secede.

This was if there is a better way of doing things some people will try it and if they fail nobody will try to follow. If it is successful, more will follow until the current state can no longer maintain itself.
