Free Market Capitalism Inevitably Leads to Corruption

voxprojectus
Jevinigh

First Round Will be opening statements without rebuttal. All following rounds may be free-form. My opening statement: It seems to be inevitably the case that the further a given municipal, provincial, or national government works to de-regulate and "get government out of the way" of the private sector, the end result seems to be Private institutions/businesses leveraging their freedom for greater political power, often legally or illegally supplying money to lawmakers along the way. The ca...

Even Germany opposes this act. If an escalation of Europe's stand-off with Moscow over Ukraine results in economic sanctions, more than 6,000...
