Nowadays as we know there has been spates of legal cases in which individuals are suing corporations for various reasons. From creating games too realistic and violent to obsesity lawsuits against fast food restaurants.

What do you think of these? Is it the responsibility of the individual to inform themself of the risks involved with certain actions or the responsibility of the corporation or company involved?

I vote for PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY but the problem is: People cannot think for themselves anymore (They have been so dumbed down/brainwashed that the elite (govt) has total control over them and they dont even realise it! and they like it that way!!)


Thats the main problem here...........

I say it's crap to blame a company for a violent video game or making unhealthy food.

Fast food companies don't claim their food is healthy. They're not forcing you to buy it. Their nutrition facts are there and available.

As far as video games go, it's games. It's not real life. Anyone with half a brain knows that as well.

I get so tired of people just pointing fingers at everyone else all the time and blaming anything other than their own stupidity.

Yes, corporate responsibility seems to be turned into protect people from themselves. Except with todays politicians who darent say people are idiots, its impossible.

Offer loans to people who might have trouble repaying them, its predatory lending.
Dont offer them loans and your'e restricting peoples right to access credit.

etc etc

It seems drug dealing, prostitution etc are the only part honest trades left.

The IQ of any collectivist member is divisibly determined by the total membership of the collective.

The larger the collective, the dumber is each member. (Think Mao's China)

As IQ is reduced, there is more demand for force and fraud, as a use and suppressor, ultimating in "the manipulation of the fears".

The Chinese execute State embezzlers, but that deterrency has been proven to be ambiguously insufficient. In a collectivist society one needs to "network" to succeed. And, as Dylan once said, "to live outside the law, you must be honest".

The Catholic Church installed the dark ages as it smothered enlightenment so as realizing the need to rename Satan to Lucifer. Elucidators were tortured or put under house arrest, like as was, Galileo Galilei.

Libertarians believe in the competition or collusion of the collectives, while liberals always attack even the concept of "the individual". The ACLU is a false front for protecting minority rights. They protect corporate rights. Even the Von Mises Group hates the idea of an individual holding a patent right. Wouldn't you know it, Von Mises was a bleeding Euro-Socialist.

Liberals and other corporatists are just a bunch of psycoholic sociopaths.
