Free Markets are Revolutionary, Liberating, and Democratic

Communism was not really a new or radical idea, even in 1917. It was simply a clever repackaging of the old, old story that the king knows best. The truly radical idea was and is the one in which we say, hang on a minute, maybe society does not need to be told what to do. Maybe the economy should be bottom-up, not top-down. Maybe order can be surprisingly spontaneous. Maybe we don’t need training wheels to stay upright on this bicycle. Maybe society can evolve.
