You're the strangest "anarchist" I've ever seen. Anarchy means no government,
you may be able to dream up a nice euphemism for it, but what you're
advocating has the 2 essential ingredients that make a government a government.

1) It claims rights and powers individuals do not have.

2) At any one time in any one place, only one may exist.

OK, if it's really a business then I can resign from it, and because a
business doesn't claim any rights that individuals don't have, when that
"business" informs me that they don't like the way I'm living my life, I can
just tell them to go soak their head.

Terrific! The consumers can vote for higher quality, lower prices and less
pollution. The workers can vote for higher wages, more time off, and better
health care. It's paradise, everybody's happy.

After that they can vote to change the Laws Of Physics and make gravity
a repulsive force.

>Okay. Government regulation is "trying"

Agreed. Government regulation is very trying.
