"How has the State created all the technical standards by which it regulates and governs our lives? For the most part, the various branches of government in the United States rely upon parameters that originally evolved on the free market. Only after these standards have proven themselves workable and acceptable does the State expropriate them, and attempt to make their use compulsory. The history of the standard time zones used in the United States are a perfect example of this." (07/10/11)
