@aral If the fines were paid to the people wronged then this may have some merit.

But all regulatory fines go to some political exchequer or other, so really it is just a 'super tax' on a companies profits to ensure the 'authorities' get their cut of the ill gotten gains.

It amounts to a 100% EU tax on the compensation we should be receiving.

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
