Regulatory Environment, Thank EU

Thanksgiving Day.

Though many parts of the world suffer from predation without accountability, the European Union has developed many positive consumer protections. EU citizens have greatly benefited from reform of assorted regulatory regimes (and in many nations, building up from lack of protections) toward systematic and uniform safeguards. Big business & lapdog media complain, but most of us benefit greatly.

Lower charges for bank machine usage & mobile phone roaming, clarity in billing, transparent pricing for air travel, etc., these are ways the EU makes a positive contribution to our lives.

The overall theme is to fight against the scam and systemic corruption.

We each enter the world naked & helpless. At your final end comes ...

We need protections.  Thanks for that!
