    Because you can't make anything you need. 3D printing isn't a Star Trek replicator. You're right though that the more 3D printers develop the more they will alter the market in bigger and bigger ways.

    If you get to keep what you print on your 3D printer, it's still capitalism.

    If you don't get to keep what you print on your 3D printer, then it's socialism.

    "Each of us must choose which course of action we should take: education, conventional political action, or even peaceful civil disobedience to bring about necessary changes. But let it not be said that we did nothing." - Ron Paul

    "Paul said "the wave of the future" is a coalition of anti-authoritarian progressive Democrats and libertarian Republicans in Congress opposed to domestic surveillance, opposed to starting new wars and in favor of ending the so-called War on Drugs."
