US Begins Regulating BitCoin, Will Apply “Money Laundering” Rules To Virtual Transactions
Of course I spend all day and night yesterday researching Bitcoins, their legitimacy, their usage and profitability and I wake up this morning to see that the Federal government is trying to regulate them. Of course. 

US Begins Regulating BitCoin, Will Apply “Money Laundering” Rules To Virtual Transactions

Markets are nothing more than the collective action of society and ethics are the collective belief of that society, than there’s no one to blame for unethical behavior of the market than society as a whole.

Therefore, if one wishes to clean up the market of unethical behavior, one shouldn’t punish the market with regulations. Instead, one should try to teach society to embrace and practice better ethics.

— We need ethical evolution, not market regulation. 
It’s ironic that the black market is seen as the nemesis of a regulated market for the black market is only spawned when a regulated market fails to deliver the goods and prices necessary to satisfy the needs of market participants due to artificial blockades created by regulations. — A theory that I like to call Market Suicide by Overdose.
