    I have been dancing around this issue. Here is a very good video that hits it pretty well on the head. And it lists the things both the Reps and the Dems are trying to do about it. The problem is, the Lobbyists are spending billions to attempt to stop any of this since it would heavily affect the companies that pay their wages.

    If government regulations weren't so onerous that only the biggest corporations can afford to comply, that would be a huge help.

    I agree. The Threat of the regulation should be enough. But it's not. The biggees will push it right over the edge because the fines are less than the glutton amounts they will make ignoring it. If we are going to do something like this, it's going to need real teeth. As in, first offense company gets a hefty fine, second offense company gets a HUGE fine, 3rd offense company gets broken up.

    I am convinced now. We would be better off as an agrarian society with one mule and 40 acres.

    That was tried once but a bunch of Capitalists took all that away and gave it to themselves.

    You would starve or get too close to a Weed Farm.

    Sounds like propaganda spread by The Mule Breeders Association. The Donkey lobby and the Horse Lobby want to keep you hooked on their products.
