A free market metaphor, for nature lovers.

You guys are going to "get" this weird idea I have about free-markets vs. socialism:

I think people who love strong central government are striving for a better society through control. I believe the free market will create more prosperity and happiness. The free market is like an ecosystem. As with a stream, man cannot set the number of frogs, mosquitoes, raccoons and microscopic creatures to achieve the ideal balance. That happens naturally and organically. The free market must be allowed to function organically, with prices occurring naturally and allowing the laws of supply and demand to create balance. Letting go of control will create a better society- better than any man can imagine.
Big government pollutes the free market. Give a hoot.

It can still be a free market if you refuse to buy their goods.

They will go out of business. Get really simple with your diet, do not buy any sugar, aspartame, salted or other JUNK food. Live as simply as you can and as much as possible do not buy on credit.

Bump for the Free market

Great metaphor! Its hard to argue with that!

"It’s not pessimistic, brother, because this is the blues. We are blues people. The blues aren’t pessimistic. We’re prisoners of hope but we tell the truth and the truth is dark. That’s different."

Even with all the attempts to control

the market in the end people buy what they want and need and are avoiding certain products like GMO.

That is a great

metaphor! If somebody understands how an ecosystem works they know you cannot tinker with it.
