It's this kind of false argument that...

discredits the anarchist ideology. They suggest that markets cannot be rigged and that political systems are always rigged. The truth is, political and economic systems are inseparable, so if one is rigged they're both rigged. The framers of the Constitution placed limits on rigged public/private partnerships like that of king George III and the British East Indies company.

After the Revolution, corporations remained small institutions chartered at the state level for specific purposes. By law, corporations could not make political contributions, could not own stock in other companies, were required to serve the public interest, and could only exist for a limited time. Owners were responsible for criminal acts committed by the corporation and the doctrine of limited liability (shielding investors from responsibility for harm and loss caused by the corporation) did not yet exist. John D. Rockefeller led efforts to change laws requiring corporate owners to serve the public interest and be responsible for criminal acts. Rockefeller said "competition is a sin". And with the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913, thus was born the worm eaten monarchical system of tyranny from which the framers sought to save us.
