    Certainly, they don't have to, it's just cost effective to do it. Consider that a pipeline network has lots of control points and systems monitored needs to maintain operations. Your options are to either have someone stationed at each point (very expensive) or use technology for remote monitoring / control and only send people into the field when there is a need (maintenance, inspections, repairs, etc.) Of course if you go the tech route you have to cover your cyber security needs.... not done here.

    Hi! Thanks for the reply. I don't want to hijack this thread but it could be a good discussion on talk about these items. Issues: special privileges that only corporations enjoy, manipulation of regulations to benefit big corporations, manipulation of trade agreements I completely agree, it's not a problem onto itself. FYI, this highlights a tactic in my post which was made in direct reply to someone on the left who was posting here. I worked to direct him to pro-liberty viewpoints that would address what he saw as a problem with no intent to agree or disagree. (Just one of many useful approaches). As it's being presented, and the pushed for solutions, I agree 100%; but again with a view of trying to build allies the tactic is to look at how pro-liberty views can help address the issue. With that it's possible to see some anti-liberty elements that play a role in the issue, which can make it not complete nonsense to a degree.

    My take... I agree with Justin to a point, the key however is to: 1) Treat others with respect (no name calling, degrading, etc) 2) Identify where there is really a common end-goal. 3) Educator others on how to get what they are after with pro-liberty principles, and why their proposed solutions are problematic. Take the issue of the rich getting richer; the left see this as cause for more government / higher taxes, which we know 1) are counter to liberty 2) won't work 3) will ultimately hurt the middle class. I wrote a summary of my pro-liberty view on how to address the "rich getting richer" issue in a 2014 post / turned blog:

For the sake of argument, let's say you statement is correct, that the economy did boom when there was a top tax rate of 91%.

Question- does that make it right? Did

"America has the highest gun violence in the world" (reference to murder rate)



Murder is a terrible thing and certainly no one wants to see one of their loved ones murdered.
