    This is pretty horrible. I really hope it doesn’t make its way up north to Canada, but the Internet being what it is, I can’t see how the impact won’t be felt.

      The only good news here is that they’ve been playing a little fast-and-lose with the procedural parts- loose enough that the order’ll get tied up in court, at least for a bit.

          libertarian capitalists are the enablers of authoritarian capitalists. You loosen the reigns on corporations and they seize control of the government, and now you have overbearing corporations and an overbearing government. How do you think we got where we are now? Simply put, it’s profitable to control the public.

            Politicians are always happy to take bribes - that’s a big part of why they become politicians. In other words, the reins on corporations were never all that tight to begin with.

            Governments are not bribed to become authoritarian. They develop into police states on their own, because it’s all about controlling the masses and making sure the government’s rule over them is not threatened.

            Sure, it’s profitable too, but the government’s actual primary concern is staying in power so that they can keep exploiting the masses, which is what governments exist for. The system is working very much as intended. It’s just not intended to work for our benefit.
