What is a Libertarian’s view on tele-advertising (and government regulation of it)?
(Apologies if I’ve misunderstood the ideology)
I’m from the UK, a place that’s quite strict on advertising laws and I’m personally quite happy with the way my government regulates advertising on television – I can’t really be bothered to list the ways, but essentially we have a higher content: advert ratio compared to America (did you know Seinfeld used to be played up to 10% faster than usual in the states to fit more advertisement?)
Now, from my understanding of libertarianism, you guys mostly support the free market, and less government regulation on businesses, correct? (Correct me if I’m wrong, please).
From this, what would a libertarian’s view of regulated advertising be? Would you see it as a violation of a business’ freedoms? Or is your entertainment valued higher than that? Do you see too much advertisement as something that impedes on your rights?
