Name One Government Agency that Doesn’t Do the Exact Opposite of its Purpose | The Daily Bell

Without an EPA, people would depend on a marketplace of organizations for information about products like Monsanto’s. And even if these organizations didn’t have the power to ban the chemicals, they could inform the market and hit Monsanto where it hurts, the wallet.

A DEA agent is accused of facilitating drug trafficking in the regions he oversaw in Florida and Arkansas. He allegedly traded inside information to drug runners in exchange for cash.

Drugs are illegal. But you can still run drugs with the right person being paid off. And you can do it for very little money–this agent got around $62,000 from one dealer for his role.

That is enough money to easily corrupt an individual, but a small price to pay compared to how much a drug dealer can make. Especially when you have the DEA looking the other way and giving you a heads up before raids.

But this isn’t surprising. We have heard the same story a thousand times before. This is how the government operates.

Monsanto is one of the worst environmental offenders, besides the government itself. Their flagship product Roundup is blamed for mass die-offs of honey bees and has been linked to cancer.

Monsanto got its start making chemicals for the military and later moved into pesticides. But their crony-relationship remained.

We are talking one or two officials that can keep a cancer-causing chemical on the market, exposing hundreds of millions or more.

And that is worse than having no EPA at all. Without an EPA, people would depend on a marketplace of organizations for information about products like Monsanto’s. And even if these organizations didn’t have the power to ban the chemicals, they could inform the market and hit Monsanto where it hurts, the wallet.

The same thing happens with the FDA and negative repercussions of opioid prescriptions. Same thing with public schools that pretend to teach children.

The Federal Reserve doesn’t stabilize the economy, it manipulates it to enrich the few at the many’s expenses. The number of terrorists grows as the Defense Department intervenes in the middle east.

And the same truth emerges in each situation. We would be better off without any of these agencies at all. Instead of doing their expressed purpose, they are used for the exact opposite. They prevent the market from doing their job, which they are easily bribed into NOT doing.

The drug trade would not be monopolized by criminals without the DEA. The environment would be better protected without the EPA. Kids would be better educated without public schools. The opioid crisis wouldn’t exist without the FDA. The economy would be more stable without the Federal Reserve.

And so on and so forth for every single government agency. It would be so much better if left to the markets.

So go ahead and comment if you can think of any government agency that doesn’t do the opposite of what it is tasked with.

Be seeing you
