Okay, your first problem is you're talking about somewhere else, other than the U.S. of A.
quoted from the article you linked---- "Britain is to ban employers looking for lap dancers, strippers, topless barmaids or sexy web-cam performers from placing adverts at Jobcentres."
What other governments do to their people is for their people to deal with.
Is it right? As a loyal U.S. citizen, I would think it is wrong for government to determine what is in the best interest of my survival with regards to working. With that said, I'll disagree with government banning an individual's right to work where they can, so they can support themselves, by whatever means necessary.
As long as they are able to make the choice willingly, they should have that right. The industry should also be regulated to fight disease, coercion, and slavery - none of which can be addressed by the free market.
tick...tick...tick - awaiting LDT's response that capitalism is self-regulating and government only makes things worse.
So you're saying that, if prostitution were legal, the women wouldn't be taken care of better? That it wouldn't be easier for the employers to make sure their employees were NOT sex slaves? that it wouldn't be easier for the "women of the night" to demand the customers wear protection?
Cuz nowadays, cops just go up to the women, and say "i'm gonna take you in or you're gonna give me what I want"... and... they have to deal with it; the women have NO recourse against customer abuse; the employers have no real ability to run a background check on their employees (in fact, if they did, they'd likely be busted)...
Sounds to me like the free market could really improve the industry.
That's not what he's saying at all. That is, in fact, the opposite of what he was saying. He rather stated that it should be legal and regulated, which would be a massive improvement over the current state of things.
"The bureaucrat is just the typically doltish employee who isn't sure what he's looking at."
Also, have you had any experience working in government? I've worked in both government and the private sector and I have say that the caliber of employees was quite a bit higher in government. The ones I've worked with were, on the whole, better educated and more skilled. In addition, they took their jobs seriously and understood that they were servants of the public and acted accordingly. Of course, there are always exceptions, but that is true of the private sector, too.
I've seen you diss government workers quite a lot. Do you actually know what you're talking about?
It is suppose to be The Age of Irresponsibility? (and I added the question mark) "Public expenditure can't buy virtue. It may even crowd it out. To preserve the American middle class, Obama and the Democrats want...
To conservatives out there, do you believe that American culture and society is becoming more irresponsible, becoming more dependent upon the government to solve their and their family problems? Do you further...
Robert Heinlein promoted in his novel, "Starship Troopers", that an individual could only be elected to public office if that person had completed some other form of public service, and that those voting also...
