How did all these businesses operate before the government intrusion into everything, pre-information age? Your answer is probably going be "not very efficiently", but were we better off before all this "efficiency"? We certainly had more privacy, medical costs were affordable and "death by doctor" wasn't any worse than now, probably lower.
I hope you don't take what I say as a personal attack on you, 'cause it's not, but the system stinks.
