  The Ishmael Community: Questions and Answers

The Question (ID Number 428)...

    It occurs to me that our society (at least here in America) hasn't completely forgotten everything in "The Great Forgetting," if you observe our strict laws in the business world, you will see that they enforce the Law of Limited Competition. Companies can compete to the best of their abilities, but cannot wage war upon each other, or destroy each others consumer base, or deny each other access to consumers. What are your thoughts on this?

    ...and the response:

    The Law of Limited Competition is in place in the living community because it's what works. That a similar law is in place in our economic community is no great prodigy, because this community also tends to adopt what works. It certainly wasn't arrived at by studying (or "remembering") what works in the living community, however.
