a truly free market has never existed in the past, doesn't exist now, and will never exist in the future. Even in the absence on all laws, morals, customs and traditions, a.k.a. anarchy, the strong will dominate the weak and this is a form of market regulation. So the term "free market" is an insidious contradiction in terms that's used to promote an anarchical economic model, or in some cases, the command/control model practiced by monopolies and cartels. I wrote the post as a means to clarify which economic model offers the most freedom while allowing for the exercise of unalienable rights. And that economic model is a competitive capitalist economy that operates within the legal and moral parameters of a Constitutional Republic.
