Hate to tell you, but it is the governments and central banks who sank our future. Though the corporations are largely inseparable from them--a kind of evil trinity.

Come to think of it, that is a pretty apt analogy. The Government is the father, the corporations the son (for obvious reasons), and the Fed is the unholy ghost, because hardly anyone knows what it is or what it does.

The invisible hand was cut off ages ago. You think the US has a free market? You're nuts, mate. The last vestiges of it disappeared decades ago. The US is full on fascist now, and is going into the same terminal decline that marks all fascist societies. Starving times are coming, just like they came to Spain.

Dude, you are literally arguing that there is no such thing as technological development, and that new methods of manufacture are literally worthless.

Think about that for literally five minutes.

Just because 3D printing isn't Star Trek replicators doesn't mean it isn't an advancement. It most certainly won't come to NOTHING, as it has already found a niche, and will probably find more in the future.

Uhh, nanotech was 90's, not 80's, and it is, in fact, amazing. We didn't have the computing power for good VR until recently. Brick and mortar stores have declined greatly. I do a large percentage of my shopping online.

You sound like a broken, bitter old man. What is wrong with you?

Nudism never hurt anyone.

Roads should be privately owned and the owners can set speed limits if they want.

People keep lots of hazardous stuff around, including chemical waste, today. Blanket prohibitions mean they are secretive about it. I would much rather they kept it on their front lawn where I could see it and tell them about how dangerous it is than for it to sit in his shed, leaking through the floor and contaminating the water table.

You have to give warning before you shoot at people coming on your land, and the fact is that 99+% of people are far more considerate than that.

You should be able to sell any drug you want. Heroin used to be sold in every corner drug store, and to children. Not that big of a deal.

Funny how statists have to create crazy edge cases to justify stealing the freedoms of others even as their system of horrors is grinding their bones for its bread. Can a cop murder you and get away with it? Can the government decide how much money it will take out of your paycheck? Can they decide if you will be allowed to board a plane? Etc, etc.
