And it's hilarious you try and bring up the food industry as an example. What would you do if they decided to bring "regulation" to the food processing industry in the US? Suddenly, you would have to actually pay employees a real (read: regulated) salary to pick tomatoes rather than paying substandard rates to illegal migrant workers, and your produce would be $20/pound as a result.
I would not do anything, I do not live in the US, I do not care.
Where I live, the regulation works and prevents people from dying due to bad food production practices. It also forces food companies to produce food that meets minimum quality standards.
Yes, I pay premium price for my quality fruit and meat, I prefer that way than to start eating food that is half plastic and half chemicals.
Believe me we ARE thinking of this nonsense. We're more thinking how the fuck did this nonsense get to the level it is today with regulation for regulation's sake. You know, like the fact that we have laws wrapped around giving another human being a ride in a car...
You can give car rides to whoever you want, the moment you start making it a service to the others then your service must be regulated.
(notice the distinction between service and favour?)
