    Are you happy with how the government regulates the airline industry (in regard to safety?)

    I would feel better if the guy doing the inspecting doesn't have a motive to keep his trap shut if there's a problem, yes.

    The entire discussion is illogical.

    1) government doesn't make planes safer. So to argue that government regulation of planes is the same as law enforcement of crime lacks parallelism. and logic.

    2) government could reduce plane crashes to zero by banning planes. I'm not aware of a similar possibility with all crime. So your logic lacks parallelism again.

    HAHAHAHAHAAHAH! so the private plane inspector is corrupt, but the government plane inspector has no motive to keep his trap shut! Brilliant!

    I also like the idea that folks who drive 4000lb machines are required to prove their ability to operate them. And should they run into me or my house because they are required to have insurance to pay for the damage.

    You mean a maze of private roads could be confusing?

    You won't have time to speed, stopping to pay tolls every few miles. And I'm sure there would be an app that could tell you the speed limit and which side of the road to drive on for each company. Just look at Apple and their former CEO Steve Apple!

    I’m thinking in such a system I would stay far, far away from roads!

    Utopia does not exist. But a system which rewards virtue will produce better behaving humans and a much better society than the one which rewards corruption.

    Really? Are you aware that the airline industry is mostly self regulated?

    spontaneous order is scary! It doesn't seem possible! The guy with the bullhorn barking out orders to every one, just like the military, that seems to be the way to go. I agree!

    You mean other than the hundreds of thousands of pages of federal regulations?

    Your absolutism will always leave you on the losing side of an argument......just saying.

    Did I say "no" motive? Either of them could be corrupted, but the odds are not equal. And an airline employee passing on a "minor" issue, isn't necessarily corrupt, but he is putting the company's interest ahead of the consumers.

    Unless I'm right. Then I'll be on the winning side of every argument and you would be on the losing side.

    The odds are not equal, I agree. Government control is far more corrupt.
