    [quote]if enough people really wanted the change, if they all had quit working for employers with conditions they disagreed with,[/quote] Easier said than done. [quote]Hmm, perhaps you're right.

    [quote]With so many people wanting the safer conditions then it seems like they would have gotten the safer conditions even without the help of government[/quote] Unfortunately, there was a huge labor movement fighting for labor reforms including things like safer conditions and an eight hour day that never accomplished their goal until the federal

    [quote] Sure, but that will take some time for me to look up.[/quote] Go for it, tiger. [quote] So you're resorting to special pleading. Thanks for making that clear.[/quote] Yep, and you could call any statement I make that isn't completely in line with some moral absolutist position a "special plea". [quote] What do you think makes

    [quote]Post hoc ergo proctor hoc[/quote] The history of worker's comp is meant as evidence, not conclusive proof. If you want to disregard that evidence, okay. I'd appreciate some kind of counter-evidence, though. [quote]So the employee is not responsible for risks he's willing to take? By that reasoning, I wouldn't be responsible for

    Have you heard of Viritnomics? http://virtonomics.com/ Again, no private roads or anything, but it's an entrepreneurial browser game.

    [quote]The comedy continues! 'About every' implies that you admit that there is at least one argument that I've won against you.[/quote] Was there only one? I've lost track of all the points I shot down. If you want to know how SWG galaxies went after one guy monopolized it, you can read his blog. http://www.mediumdifficulty.com/2012

    Realistic MMO economics would involve private roads and infrastructure so you're paying a toll each time you get out the door and step onto the sidewalk. What we have now in MMOs is total socialism with government provisioned roads and healthcare revives.

    [quote]Why do you assume, mustang, that employers would not be accountable for the safety of their employees?[/quote] I don't assume. We know how things were before these regulations. [quote]I think you're uncomfortable with the idea of self-ownership and personal responsibility. If you can show me how personal responsibility and self-ownership
