"There's a strong argument to be made that the darknet economy makes the world a safer place overall."

Christopher Ingraham of The Washington Post argues that, as a result of the FBI taking down darknet drug operators, it has made the world a more dangerous place. Darknet sites allowed users to purchase unadulterated drugs, reducing street violence while promoting the sellers of quality merchandise.

By taking drug transactions off the street and putting them online, you eliminate a significant link in the chain of violence between drug suppliers and end users. Drugs purchased online are typically less adulterated with dangerous contaminants than street drugs are, and a system of reviews rewards sellers who provide high-quality product.
