Comment Re:That's one of the nice things about being well (Score 1) 118

I think that comment is mostly wish fulfillment. Display of wealth is the surest, simplest way for a man to get laid, and that hasn't changed in five thousand years. Neither Millennials nor Post-Millennials are a new species. The women are pretty much the same as women always have been, and the men are pretty much the same as men always have been.

The state can make a law requiring you buy their product; a company can not. (In fact, this is what happened with Obamacare.)

The state can forbid competitors; a company can not.

The free market is far more consistent with a political philosophy of individual rights.

To the other commentator who mentions rape culture: Do you have even the slightest idea what you are talking about?

They don't, and I would suggest they can not understand what they're talking about, because 'rape culture' is a meaningless, il-defined, and self-contradictory concept. If they could define exactly what rape culture was, it would either be horrible and rare, or common and unremarkable. They would rather leave it a nebulous concept, able to be used globally for accusations whenever desired, and immune to any objection.
