A Discrimination Question Answered
I basically get two kinds of questions.
I get rhetorical questions when I write something negative about the U.S. military, the U.S. global empire, or U.S. soldiers. Things like: Why don’t you move to Cuba or North Korea? Why do you hate America? Why don’t you live somewhere else if you don’t like what the government does? Why do you despise our troops so much? Why do you spew forth such bile? Don’t you know that it is U.S. soldiers who give you the freedom to write the crap you do?
I get interrogative questions about so many different things that I couldn’t possible categorize them here. Most of them I try to answer. However, I don’t respond to any e-mail when the subject line or the first two words are “F*** you.” (That was a typical greeting back when Bush was the president and the Iraq War was in full swing).

In a free society, government would not violate any individual’s or business’s property rights.
In a free society, government EEOCs would not exist.
Property rights are the key to what is often perceived as the dress-code and discrimination conundrums. It is property owners — residence owners and business owners — alone who solely establish rules, regulations, and requirements for entry, admission, employment, service, commerce, and activity that takes place on their property. In a free society, government doesn’t concern itself with those things as long as people’s actions are peaceful and voluntary.
Here is the e-mail with the question:
I read your article, enjoyed it, and wanted to post a comment, but there was no discussion option.
I tend to agree with you about a free society and letting businesses to have dress codes or anything they want, because in a free society, people can just choose to go elsewhere if t
