Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Let's look at it another way. Remember, in open markets companies must treat people relatively well, because potential workers can withhold their labor and potential customers can withhold their money and use it to buy something else, so these tax-collecting companies can't mistreat people by... um...

Well, probably not actual legs, of course. Waterboarding?
