In our system, the society makes up the rules and then the punishment is dished out by that same society (in theory). One man doesn't make the law, and then administer the punishment. In Christianity, God made the laws without our approval or input. I'm not quite an anarchist, and I see your analogy, but it still isn't the same. We have a republic (sort of) where the government is not in the hands of the private royalty, but in the hands of the public. King George dished out punishment right? Think about why he was a tyrant rather than a President like Jefferson. Same scenario goes for god, in my mind. We the people have no say in the government he rules with. He makes the laws and punishes, judge jury and executioner style.
Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).
