Every regulation will be looked at closely and will be replaced with stronger regulations that have real teeth. This is libertarianism of the future.

Another smooth-brained reaction to facts and reality.   

I DO appreciate them.     Smiley

It's about how the fact that society runs on ads makes society unfair and anti-competitive.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

Another problem with our society: It's totally ad-driven, making the seller of a better product noncompetitive unless he shells out at least as much for advertisements.

Ironically this is a problem with capitalism.

Well, to be perfectly fair, this is a problem with capitalism + consumer stupidity.
What sort of solutions would you propose to this "problem" that you see that you say is caused by "capitalism"?

Certainly you are aware that "socialism" doesn't have that problem because a "better product" doesn't even exist, and often there are no products at all...

He has a valid point on advertising. Comparing capitalism and socialism is just a dodge by you.

It's very familiar because it's very frequently used to avoid answering the questions on how some forms of capitalism aren't providing answer.

And sadly, the libertarian brand of capitalism is by far the worst kind.

A possible answer Oppo, is that sometimes the advertising is not permitted because it's damaging to the capitalist system in place.

We libertarians embrace laissez-faire capitalism, meaning that the government is hands-off in the workings of the free market.

Socially responsible capitalism is where the government taxes individuals and corporations, and then redistributes wealth where it sees fit.  It hinders growth and innovation.

Both are forms of capitalism, but very different in scope and policy.

Libertarianism is nothing more than a random grasping of the idea that nobody should pay taxes. It's always going to appeal to about 2-5% of the most simpleminded.

Alayne, therm, Oppo, you. There's nothing more to be said other than what Jeff has to say. He's better left alone to say it because his contrary streak is just being bolstered by me.
