Because of monopoly. Nothing is really illegal. It's not illegal to sell crack and destroy entire blocks of south los angeles as long as your doing it for some common good like a really cool gun your soldiers need in a war. It's not illegal to gamble. It's just illegal to threaten mobster control over the monopolization of an activity. They are welcome to become legal if they just hire people and train them to shoot other human beings for 8 hours a week. Then it's suddenly legal or something.
I mean seriously you can't keep perverts out of jail if you can't create a job for them at the TSA to grope people and pat them down. People are just going to have to get on a plane and fly to las vegas.
This is all smoke and mirrors. There's not any internet money laundering, because traditional money laundering schemes all work perfectly well. It's just a mind screw creation of "some common good" justification system and control of the mechanisms of legitimization.
IE the banks have money invested in Las Vegas, the banks have money invested in the FBI, the banks have money invested in the airlines and they want to control the suckers by pumping them full of I'm feeling lucky jupiter energy and this is your time for reward jupiter energy and then fleecing them through cold hard saturn by setting all the games to benefit the house over time.
You want to play on a machine that is legally manipulated and programmed to be a "I win you lose" machine in a legally owned las vegas show room. Not play on a illegally manipulated sucker fleecing machine on the internet.
This is why we have the focus effect of law enforcement. Like say I want to move a hundred tons of coke a year. But people keep hassling me about it. So I'll declare a war on drugs and take compelete control and responsibility of drug enforcement and you can just sit back and relax and call me incompetent because there's 8 times more drugs on the planet than before my war declaration. Then when the war is going so badly and I'm lying to you about it. I can do other stupid things. Like I have the ability to seize drug profits and seize drug property. But I'll make you pay 5 bucks to wire money somewhere because it's needed for the war on drugs and to combat "money laundering". This is because even though I can sieze drug money and seize dug profits if I do it too often people won't work for me and trust me to make a legit legal drug operation.
Oh i gotta go practice stabbing people and perfecting murdering people with my aluminimun cop flashlight and MP5. You all be good and don't violently assemble or practice shooting or anything. I want to be able to safely kill you if I get caught doing all the illegal crap I'm doing.
Everybody relax the world was made much safer through monopolization and "regulation" of an activity that is harmful to society. Of course if the regulators don't play ball they'll get fired or set up. Hahahaha.
