Self-regulation v self-help greg_m - 5/7/2005 02:37
Self regulation is possible - the word 'self' can apply to industries, corpoartions etc which often are left to regulate themselves. But self help is a much clearer oxymoron, and should be on your list. 'Help' means to assist another entity, thus it is impossible to 'help' yourself.
