Maybe I didn't make it clear as I'm having a similar conversatio

on another thread.

My question was (meant to be): "Name a 1st-World Nation having a civil war where guns turned the tide" -- India is not even a 2nd World Nation, so there.

Ron Paul says Free-Trade begets Free-Markets and Mises (RP's Mentor) says the Consumer-is-Sovereign (and must be free to be so).

Corporatist Revenue Stream:
1) Consumers-who-Purchase
2) Consumers-who-Invest
3) Gov't Intervention

Free-market Revenue Stream:
1) Consumers-who-Purchase
2) Consumers-who-Invest

In a free-society our self-defense would of long-ago evolved passed metal-guns -- it is (or it would've been) an ancient tech.

Imagine a Free-Market from 1790 on -- the rapid speed of tech-evolution -- unhindered by world wars, civil wars, korean war, and vietnam war?

Guns would be artifacts -- museum pieces.

The "shot heard round the world" should be the sound of conscious-consumers at the POS (never the ballot box).
