Nope, it is you who introduced the strawman of "ALL business owners".<quoted text>
No straw man on my side, this was your post:
"No that means that the purpose of the business is to make money:
- through any means possible,
- externalizing all costs onto the taxpayers, neighbors, and/or customers,
- with no concern for pollution, injury, and damages they create,
- paying the absolute minimum in wages.
That is the purpose of a business.
That means you have to regulate businesses as the amoral entities they are.
Nothing wrong with businesses - they are just amoral entities designed to maximize profit and avoid personal responsibilities for the owners. "
Except that a business is not sentient and makes none of those decisions - the people who run the businesses make those decisions. Consequently, you should have qualified your statement that SOME business owners may act in the above mentioned ways. But you said "you have to regulate businesses as the amoral entities they are" which translates to "you have to regulate business owners as the amoral entities they are" - if you didn't mean it, you shouldn't have said it. Just saying.
Oh, yes, of course, because in the minds of the Left ALL business owners:
I can not control how you translate what you read, but the fact remains that business is regulated because people have acted collectively to curb the inherent amorality of the nonsentient entity know as business. If a business burns coal then that business is regualted as to how it burns coal, and what it can do with the residue. People run the business, but it is the business that is regulated
Perhaps Libertarian Philosophy is the source of your mis-translation.
