How do you feel about rental? For example, prostitution?
I dispute that any jurisdiction exists to interfere
with ladies of the evening rendering their services.
I support freedom of both sides to such a contract.
How do you answer the objection that in a "laissez-faire capitalist"
environment, you might get situations where vulnerable people get exploited?
(As already happens, actually).
Everyone has freedom of contract.
He or she can use it as he or she sees fit.
That is none of the government 's business,
and government was not created to prevent "exploitation".
It was created to defend people from the VIOLATION OF THEIR RIGHTS
against their will, e.g., by robbery.
How do you know what "the Founders" would have been aghast at?
We know their thoughts by reading their writings.
Are you in touch with them?
Of course I am; I need only read
what thay wrote.
Do you think it was right that many of them owned slaves?
