More or less. Unfettered anarcho-capitalism (“The free market will sort it out, we don’t need regulations!”) is just a way for people to pass the buck- of doing the hard work to keep their operation above board- onto some hypothetical non-existent perfectly moral group of CEOs/oligarchs who will only operate with the best of intentions.Is that a way of saying capitalism in a society without moral moorings?
But since those oligarchs don’t exist, business leaders are motivated purely by short term greed, they’ve all colluded with each other either directly or implicitly through the form of controlling messaging in the public domain (why does every democratic presidential candidate have to be “electable” and what does that even mean?!), so that enough people grew up thinking herp derp any new rule = big gubmint! And business leaders have, instead of opting for long term success, invest their money to maximize short term gains.
In the absence of stricter oversight, we get an appliance designed to fly 180 people through the sky that will, on its whim, happily lawn dart itself into terra firma and not tell its operators what it’s doing.
