Say what you mean.

Mark, what you really mean to ask is, "Can unalienable rights exist in an anarchy"? Here is a perfectly good definition of free market capitalism. -A market economy based on supply and demand with little or no government control. A completely free market is an idealized form of a market economy where buyers and sellers are allowed to transact freely based on a mutual agreement on price without state intervention in the form of taxes, subsidies or regulation.

None of that has to do with the system you are complaining about. You are angry at fat cats who use government to slant the playing field in their favor. You are misusing the term free market capitalism the same way most liberals do. The danger of that is that people who don't understand liberty and individual property rights hear "capitalism" and they think it is the system we have today, which they loathe. So then they aren't open to the ideas of individual liberty, because those ideas are linked to capitalism, which they have eroneously been taught to link to evil.

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