They hate freedom in general.  They proceed from the most ancient, barbaric instincts of human beings - they want to have power over everyone else.  The idea of freedom is, in historical terms, the most modern, revolutionary idea, that seeks to put the long, sad history of thuggery in the past.



That’s more or less the opposite of the truth (unless by ‘leftist libbie’ you mean ‘early 20th Century totalitarianism’)
  

Under Capitalism, Man exploits Man.

Under Communism, it's the exact opposite.

There is no such thing as a free market.

Never has been, never will be.

Why do you say that?
  

"Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influences, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist." J M Keynes

"In the first place, the dichotomy between "theoretical" and "practical" is a false one. In economics, all arguments are theoretical. And, since economics discusses the real world, these theoretical arguments are by their nature "practical" ones as well." M Rothbard

Why do leftist-libbies have so much hate toward our free market system? Why are they so in love with government?

They want government to force businesses to serve people that they don't want to serve. Why won't they simply let the free market work itself out? If a business is "bigoted," lots of potential customers won't support that business and it will likely suffer for it, thereby forcing business owners to possibly rethink their policies. That's the free market at work.

They want government to force businesses to pay workers a minimum wage. Why won't they let the free market work itself out? Private businesses would compete for the best workers by offering enticing benefits and wages, thereby raising the average scale organically. That's the free market at work.

Human ingenuity and the ability to adapt to new conditions have brought success to this nation - not government. What happened to make libbies so reliant on government?

So if I need a prescription filled and the nearest pharmacy that will fill my prescription is 50 miles away because all the pharmacies in my area refuses to serve me, that would be OK with you?  That used to be the reality for many Jews and blacks long ago.

Things have changed since November. Now conservatives are selectively anti-market. You would think that given their new distrust of markets, they would empathize with liberals...


I should add that even before Trump, most conservatives were against a free market for drugs. Conservatives are also much less likely than liberals to support ending restrictions on prostitution.

So I guess the real question is "Why do rightist-conservies hate the free market?"

I think she'd be fine with that, personally. Especially if you're a sand monkey.  That's part and parcel of being an "ardent Christian."

That's odd coming from a European.  Statism is in the warp and woof of European culture, from the continent which gave us George III, Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, and Marx.  The US was in fact partly founded as an escape from eurostatism.

Free market vs. regulations = false dichotomy

Why must we choose one or the other?  Seems like the best outcomes for advanced economies come to those who embrace both.

There are some important needs that go unfilled by private markets, and there are a great many functions that would suffer under central control.  Why not pick the best elements of both systems?
