Constitutional Protection for Business
A licence to trade. Why? Why should anyone need permission from the State to do business? State licensing of business is an unwarranted intrusion into the private affairs of citizens with the sole aim of extracting monies via a defacto tax, interposing itself between trader and customer in a direct imposition of force which would be totally prohibited and outlawed in a written Constitution. A separation of business and State would entirely remove the agency of the State from the private business affairs of its citizens and this would also encompass all regulation of industry and trade with its pettifogging restrictions,mountains of bureaucracy and interdictions soley designed to frustrate and obstruct business and in a sneaky,underhand covert unstated way to effectively co opt and nationalise it. A Constitutional separation of business and State is long overdue.
