... there is NO such thing as the "FREE MARKET". It's a construct. A myth. A fable. A fairytale.
Let it go, my brain-damaged little conservatives....
Much like Santa and the Toothfairy, people who claimed to love you, that won your trust and undying belief, have wooed you into believing something that is, essentially, a lie.
No free market. All market properties are tampered with, hampered, manipulated and spun. All of them.
Deal with it.
