Thanks to the Cuyahoga river which started the Clean Water Act and the EPA, we now have the EPA trying to regulate ditches and gullies on private land.
Unfortunately I cannot argue against the formation of the EPA and the Clean Water Act, because in a free market rivers like the Cuyahoga start catching on fire.
Is there no historical evidence whatsoever to suggest that a free market does *not* cause rivers to start catching on fire?
Am I the only one who thinks this is important?
