Listening to the Right sell their anti government theme by harping on it relentlessly, one would think that they would be in heaven were the government to vanish tomorrow. But in reality, the Reinter Class could not have arisen and thrived without a government they shaped to do their bidding, and enforce their contracts, and the inequality that we are suffering could not have been created without courts that let unfair and unethical contracts stand.
Illegal contracts are unenforceable. Usury (loan contracts with interest rates above 12%), used to be illegal in many states. Contracts between parties of very unequal bargaining power were be found to be unenforceable when the courts were not packed with creatures of the oligarchy. Insurance Contracts where the party taking out the insurance has no insurable interest (such as Credit Default Swaps bought by an entity against a bond or sovereign debt that the entity does not own) were illegal and as an illegal contract, the seller could not sell the swap and could not be forced to pay out if the debt went bad. Much of the ill gotten gains of the Big Banks and Wall Street are due to a whole web of shady practices, among them the use of a leveraged naked short selling to drive down the price of a company so that it can be taken over, and the use of 30 to 1 leverage for buying that allows them to buy enough stock to gain a controlling interest of a company, its cash flow and retained earnings, with a smaller down payment percentage than that required by a liar loan. All these transactions are contracts, all these transactions depend on having a complicit and compliant government willing to find these maneuvers legal and enforce the outcome.
So the Right is not Anti-Government as they claim, they just want government that works for them and no one else.
