governmnet regulation

"Government regulations - such as those that protect the environment from destruction, workers from death and injury, and consumers from faulty and dangerous products and exploitative advertising - require corporations, by law, to be socially and environmentally responsible, rather than trusting and hoping that they will be under threat of charter revocation.

Government regulations are decisions about appropriate standards for corporate behavior that are made to protect and promote the public interest and reflect the will of the people.

Government regulations, unlike market-based solutions, combines authority, capacity, and democratic legitimacy to protect citizens from corporate overreach misdeeds.

Through it, government can pursue social value - social justice, citizen health and welfare, environmental integrity, cultural identity - beyond the narrow goals of self-interest and wealth maximization dictating the behavior of corporations." - Joel Balkan

"Forbid only that which can be enforced."

Napoleon Bonaparte

Some regulation is necessary in modern complex industrial culture for a true free market economy to work correctly and efficiently.

Regulations designed to create a viable, vibrant truly free market by having multiple local providers of goods or services competing on a level playing field is the most effective form of economic distribution of resources.

If a monopolizing interest takes control of a resource or if a provider of goods and services is subsidized then the free market will fail to function as a free market.

Regulation, at some level dependent on the specific industry, is required to assure that multiple providers of goods and services exist and that they compete with each other on a level playing field.

An industry failing to assure the safety of marketed products or failing to provide a service as marketed has become egregiously socially irresponsible.

Industry forfeits its claim to self-policing and must submit to regulation by a government regulatory institution to retain a charter.

Egregiously socially irresponsible corporate charters are revoked.

Economic efficiency suggests industry actually rigorously police itself.

While poorly designed and implemented regulation stifles the internal balancing mechanisms of a free market, self-regualtion equals token regulation.

If an industry is subsidized or monopolized the free market fails to function efficiently.

American automotive industry is a good example of socially irresponsiblity.

General Motors, the Ford Motor Company and the Chrysler Group, basically a three member cartel, held only 48.1% of the American new auto - cars and trucks - sales market in July 2007 when foreign imports for the first time held more than half the market at 51.9%.

First two-thirds of 2011: foreign imports - 52.9%; domestic - 47.1% …

"Detroit likes to claim that making cars more efficient is too costly, requires changes that consumers won't accept or would compromise safety, or that the technology isn't here yet.

The auto industry opposed shatterproof windshields, seat belts, upholstered dashboards, safety locks, inside trunk locks, air bags, then smart air bags, catalytic converters, emission-control devices, energy-absorbing steering wheels, head restraints, nickel-metal hydride batteries, California zero emission vehicle mandate and changes to the corporate average fuel economy.

Only legislation can move Detroit." - John Spradley

Foreign auto companies embrace efficiency and safety above and beyond legislatively set regulation and now those same foreign auto companies hold over half the American domestic market in new car and truck sales.

While American automotive companies fought regulation as too expensive foreign auto companies prove that making a better product increases market share making regulation a market driver.

In certain cases, as below, regulation is entirely ineffective outside prohibition.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
