Your scenario is akin to doing away with all politicians because there are bad ones, but you simply can not clean crony capitalism out of politics as long as politicians are dealing with big business men. This is not a right or left thing. Both sides are complicit. Vote out one politician, guess who takes his place.....another politician, and chances are he got campaign funding from someone important who expects a favor in return.
True, cd, but the obvious ramifications of the inequality of such a system are legislature that is being addressed as we speak. So, therefore, governmental regulation is attempting to produce a more equitable situation at this very moment in time. Perhaps governmental regulation can have more positive effects at times than its absence can. (?)
