...Societies, as in a group of people that provides for each of their members' needs, are formed voluntarily...

You believe you will find a friendly neighbor in time of need.
I know, because I have been in need where there were not friendly neighbors, that there needs to be a protocol in place to help a person bridge the periods between self reliability.

People have a right to be stupid, govt have no responsibility to restrict them.

When it was an issue, it didn't have so much to do with stupidity as much as
-Sick animals
-Lack of pasteurization
-Lack of refrigeration before distribution
The dairy industry as it stands may be expensive to get into because of required equipment but, it grew into being that way in response to sickness and death.
It was regulated into improvement.

Not so different but, different enough to notice: Try living in Mexico for a week.
First thing I notice infrastructural was how homes had water tanks on their roofs and then, the >>decreased use of refrigerated trucking.<<
Food is hella saltier in the US, too.

1) Perfectly free markets lead to monopolies and fixed prices.
No that's corporatism

"So many people in the world are wondering why this man wasn't elected"
"Why is this idea being ridiculed instead of being adopted?"
Even in this speech, there was a fair amount of shortsightedness up through cracked-pottery mixed in with Grandpa`s wisdom.

1) Perfectly free markets lead to monopolies and fixed prices.
2) People protested like hell against a middle-eastern war. They were ignored.
3) "Why...restrict the drinking of raw milk?"
Because people used to die from it. Regulations on handling led to higher quality food.
4) "Why...regulate commodes in our homes?"
Municipal water conservation, D!ckweed...
5) "...can`t take care of own needs...do it for them?"
Shanty town children better solution then?
