Can the Government Regulators be Trusted with Free Markets?

Many people understand the inherent issues in free markets with corruption, mob style attacks on competitors and the need to protect consumers from fraud and theft. In our nation we have regulations on business that often are too restrictive for us to continue to call our economy one of Free Markets.

Those who defend such intervention and lambaste the laisse faire motif say things such as; “If economic markets were free, the government wouldn’t interfere. If the markets were manipulated, the government would interfere.”

Pardon my French but that is absolute BS, Government interferes in free markets every day, thus manipulates them. The regulators un-level playing fields that give an edge to Corporate America against small business, but indeed large corporations do not need an edge over small business, as they are so much more well financed.

If a large corporation cannot compete with smaller businesses, then it is not correctly using its economies of scale and is therefore inefficient. If regulators allow lobbyists and politics to interfere they are not assisting free-markets they are doing the exact opposite of intent or perpetuating fraud themselves.

Does it matter if the if the human bureaucrat in the bureaucracy is corrupt or incompetent in their regulation endeavors? No, either way they are causing damage to my nation and my people. It is time for them to come clean, admit their actions are hurting not helping and join with us in solving these issues.

We need a reality check on free markets and government over regulation. I certainly hope this article is of interest and that is has propelled thought.

Question by mpc827: Is there a free 3d modeler able to cel-shade?
I don’t have $ 3500 laying around for a nice modeler (pardon me! lol) so is there a free one with this capability? I’m a game designer so I need to be able to use the model in my games.

Well, Blender has a build-in toon (cel) shader – but it really depends whether you intend to create a game based on (pre)rendered graphics, or real-time 3d models. In the first case Blender will work quite well – it just needs a bit of tinkering around to get the required effect.

Another (free) option would be SketchUp – the real-time rendered cel shaded scenes can be saved as an image.

However, real-time toon/cel shading depends on the actual real-time game engine you are using. Unity3d supports real-time in-game cartoon shading (FusionFall being a prime example that comes to mind), and will not cost the world ($ 199, http://unity3d.com/).

Again, Blender has a built-in game engine, and supports real-time toon rendering. Have a look at the open source game created with/in Blender: http://www.yofrankie.org/
GLSL demo (including a cel shader effect):
Source can be downloaded and examined, btw.

A good example of Blender anime shading:

And, of course, there’s TrueSpace (free now): http://www.caligari.com
Also offers a cel shader.
