I figured out how to spread libertarian thought to a statistSubmitted by October2007 on Wed, 10/10/2012 - 04:23
First off, never tell a statist that you want to abolish a government agency... It scares them to death.
Ask a statist if they agree that monopolies are bad... The statist will always say "YES". So why is it good in government?
The best solution is to promote competition in all walks of life and the only way to do it is to remove monopoly powers.
Ok, so all that us crazy freedom lovers are advocating is for freedom of choice. Period. Who could be against that?!?
For example, take away the FDA's monopoly power over our food and drugs and allow people to choose whether they want to ingest food and drugs that are FDA approved, approved by a wide variety of private organizations or not approved at all.
The consumers will decide and the marketplace will provide.
But when you think of all the poisons the FDA approves that are in our food and drugs, it's obvious that if they lost their monopoly power and there was competition in the food and drug testing sector, the FDA would fade away really fast.
In time, the marketplace will give us the best service at the lowest price...Not to mention that people would become much healthier and more conscious about what they eat. It's a win-win.
Bottom line: We don't need to abolish any government agency (including the Federal Reserve)... Just remove its monopoly power, allow open competition and watch the government agency become completely unneeded and disappear into thin air.
