Eppen, hogy nem volt mindegy, mit irt. Szokasa szerint
nevek nelkul eresztett altalam sertonek talalt megjegyzeseket
a nagyvilagba, s minthogy en voltam utolso vitapartnere, szuk-
segesnek ereztem valaszolni. Eljarasom persze vitathato, mert
nem nevezett neven. De en csak azert is verigsertodom, ha a
Forumon valaki mosdatlan szajjal beszel.

We favor the creation of a free market in oil by instituting full
property rights in underground oil and by the repeal of all
government controls over output in the petroleum industry. All
government-owned energy resources should be turned over to private
Pollution of other people's property is a violation of individual
rights. Present legal principles, particularly the unjust and false
concept of "public property," block privatisation of the use of the
environment and hence block resolution of controversies over
resource use. We support the development of an objective legal
system defining property rights to air and water. We call for a
modification of the laws governing such torts as trespass and
nuisance to cover damages done by air, water, radiation, and noise
pollution. We oppose legislative proposals to exempt persons who
claim damage from radiation from having to prove such damage was in
fact caused by radiation. Strict liability, not government agencies
and arbitrary government standards, should regulate pollution. We
therefore demand the abolition of the Environmental Protection
Agency. We also oppose government-mandated smoking and non-smoking
areas in privately owned businesses.
Toxic waste disposal problems have been created by government
policies that separate liability from property. Rather than making
taxpayers pay for toxic waste clean-ups, individual property owners,
or in the case of corporations, the responsible managers and
employees, should be held strictly liable for material damage done
by their property. Claiming that one has abandoned a piece of
property does not absolve one of the responsibility for actions one
has set in motion. We condemn the EPA's Superfund whose taxing
powers are used to penalize all chemical firms, regardless of their
conduct. Such clean-ups are a subsidy of irresponsible companies at
the expense of responsible ones.
3. CONSUMER PROTECTION
We support strong and effective laws against fraud and
misrepresentation. However, we oppose paternalistic regulations
which dictate to consumers, impose prices, define standards for
products, or otherwise restrict risk-taking and free choice. We
oppose governmental promotion or imposition of the metric system.
We oppose all so-called "consumer protection" legislation which
infringes upon voluntary trade, and call for the abolition of the
Consumer Product Safety Commission. We advocate the repeal of all
laws banning or restricting the advertising of prices, products, or
services. We specifically oppose laws requiring an individual to buy
or use so-called "self-protection" equipment such as safety belts,
air bags, or crash helmets.
We advocate the abolition of the Federal Aviation Administration,
which has jeopardized safety by arrogating to itself a monopoly of
safety regulation and enforcement. We call for privatizing the air
traffic control system and transferring the FAA's other functions to
We advocate the abolition of the Food and Drug Administration and
particularly its policies of mandating specific nutritional
requirements and denying the right of manufacturers to make
non-fraudulent claims concerning their products. We advocate an end
to compulsory fluoridation of water supplies. We specifically oppose
government regulation of the price, potency, or quantity able to be
produced or purchased of drugs or other consumer goods. There should
be no laws regarding what substances (nicotine, alcohol,
hallucinogens, narcotics, Laetrile, artificial sweeteners, vitamin
supplements, or other "drugs") a person may ingest or otherwise use.
We advocate the complete separation of education and State.
Government schools lead to the indoctrination of children and
interfere with the free choice of individuals. Government ownership,
operation, regulation, and subsidy of schools and colleges should be
ended. We call for the repeal of the guarantees of tax-funded,
government-provided education, which are found in most state
As an interim measure to encourage the growth of private schools and
variety in education, including home schooling, we support tax
credits for tuition and other expenditures related to an
individual's education. We likewise favor tax credits for child care
and oppose nationalization of the child-care industry. We oppose
denial of tax-exempt status to schools because of those schools'
private policies on hiring, admissions, and student deportment. We
support the repeal of all taxes on the income or property of private
schools, whether for profit or non-profit.
We condemn compulsory education laws, which spawn prison-like
schools with many of the problems associated with prisons, and we
call for an immediate repeal of such laws.
Until government involvement in education is ended, we support
elimination, within the governmental school system, of forced busing
and corporal punishment. We further support immediate reduction of
tax support for schools, and removal of the burden of school taxes
from those not responsible for the education of children.
Recognizing that the American people are not a collective national
resource, we oppose all coercive measures for population control.
We oppose government actions that either compel or prohibit
abortion, sterilization, or any other forms of birth control.
Specifically, we condemn the vicious practice of forced
sterilization of welfare recipients or of mentally retarded or
"genetically defective" individuals.
