Are you a Libertarian? If so, what do you think of the article?

I thought libertarianism was perfect until I remembered I live in reality.

I thought this was common knowledge about why unregulated markets are bullshit.

Well, I believe that we should be responsible for the decisions we make and we know more about what we want than the government does

Libertarians are the "I'll listen to pretty much any kind of music" kids of politics.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

I was unaware that the U.S. lacked any economic regulations. My whole worldview is crumbling. ;_;

This. The market is great for some things and horrible for others.

At the risk of sounding like a bit of a douche, isn't this the sort of thing that, well, most other countries realized decades ago?

Well California has the EWRA and many other states have bans on the production/distribution of products containing mercury, lead, and high concentration of PBDE. And to add to that there is a 'soft' regulation due to the EU's ROHS directive. Sure we can make things but god damn it we can't sell them anywhere unless they comply.

So it's not completely unregulated.

You are fine! Thank you for responding above a fourth-grade level... I am saying that if things like Asbestos are poisonous and should obviously not be used, who is to say what other things should not be used or even outlawed?

I can't take the article seriously due to its comparing the 'regulated European way' and the 'unregulated American way'.

Quote by VelvetBananas
The government isn't evil, just unnecessary government

Like the kind that regulates the products you're able to buy, or the materials used to build things you need to be able to use on a day to day basis?

What exactly constitutes unnecessary government involvement?

This. The fact that this guy fails to mention all of the regulations the 'unregulated' American way has is hilarious.

The x isn't y, it's just unnecessary x?
Is that even a coherent statement?

Unless you mean to say any government at all is unnecessary, or rather, that no government is necessary, your statement doesn't make any damn sense.

The government should be here to protect us from invaders, criminals, and to provide us with a currency, that is almost it

-Any law that prohibits you from doing something that does not harm anybody else is unnecessary government involvement in my opinion

-I agree with you I am very conservative but read liberal things just for kicks (I tear them apart in my head as I read them)

The choice to use those things in your building is ideal... Just because I don't approve of using those things (along with the other 99% of people) should not mean that the 1% that chooses to use these things should be banned from them

Would that not inadvertently harm others though? IIRC preventing harm to another person is the government's responsibility by your guidelines.

Didn't they teach you the Coase Theorem in school? You must have went to some shitty public school or something.

Really though, that one percent comment (from VelvetBananas) is interesting because he is basically defending the right of the 'one percent' to neglect everyone else. How ideal. In other words: "99% of the population and I don't support murder but that doesn't mean murderers shouldn't do it."
