I’m definitely pro-capitalism, but I agree. It’s a balancing act, most of the time (I think) you gotta let the free market run its course but you certainly need an element of gov’t regulation.

It’s all human nature either way, and human nature tends towards fedualism as predictable as the universe tends towards disorder.

I don’t know enough about the topic to determine whether this fella’s a crank, but he has crankish rhythms for sure.

My first question is, if this has been true for 5 years, why aren’t the farmers’ markets & direct mailers cleaning up on their unfettered competition?

What a cool fuckin hat I could never pull off.

That only works if the government prevents monopolies from controlling too much.
