Comment: look up the definition

(See in situ)


look up the definition

or stop replying to me. It's as clear as day that a free market is "subordinate" to a law such as "no killing". It's also very clear that a free market is NOT subordinate, in fact it is inconsistent with a law that says something like, "all Americans must purchase health insurance." THE LAW, is not one thing, like you are trying to make it out to be in your last comment. It is many things and a free market can exist with protection of individual property through just laws such as property rights laws. You are trying to cling to this idea you have that free market capitalism means no laws. Just as you admitted before, YOU are the one defining capitalism in your own way and refusing to look up the actual definition that most everyone else uses. If you'd look it up, you'd see that capitalism, free market capitalism specifically, does not imply absence. It doesn't not imply that murder is somehow legal. Free market capitalism simply implies that private citizens own their means of production. Laws exist to protect that ownership. Contract laws, anti-fraud laws, personal protection laws, etc. all have a place in a free market. These ideas are perfectly congruent, if you'd just look up the damn definition and stop using your own made up definition.

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).
