Right now, the words “free market,” for the vast majority of people whose main source of livelihood is their labor, are just another way of saying “sweatshops” and “corporate serfdom.” That’s probably because most of the folks they hear on TV and read on the editorial page celebrating “free markets” really ARE for sweatshops and corporate serfdom. When there are enough professing free marketers who side with peasants against the big corporations trying to rob them, instead of instinctively reacting in a manner precisely opposite, maybe that will change.
To dissolve, submerge, and cause to disappear the political or governmental system in the economic system by reducing, simplifying, decentralizing and suppressing, one after another, all the wheels of this great machine, which is called the Government or the State. --Proudhon, General Idea of the Revolution
