The free market, which unfortunately we only get small glimpses of, is man's natural government. It always exists. It is not the creation of man.
Man merely discovers it, like electricity, and either allows it to flourish, or does not. When it flourishes, unprecedented wealth springs forth without any centralized direction or dictates. When the free market is suppressed, wealth is destroyed, driving the multitudes into ever lower depths of living hell.
Sadly, the history of man is one of trying to permanently suppress this natural government.
The free market is the absence of force. Man-made government is force. The free market plays no favorites. Man-made government is all about granting special privileges.
The free market is incapable of bailing anyone out. Man-made government keeps failed business ventures breathing, long after they should have been buried.
The free market is the harshest regulator on the planet. It shows no mercy to businesses that fail to provide consumers what they desire. Man-made government pretends to regulate, while lining the pockets of itself and its closest friends.
The free market doesn't care if consumers like Coca-Cola or Dom Perignon. It doesn't care if people like The Rock or Pavoratti. Whatever consumers want with great intensity, the free market will provide.
Below you will see the mentality of a modern day entrepreneur, who lives and breathes satisfying the most urgent wants of consumers. His name is Gary Vaynerchuk:
Champions of the natural government, like Gary Vaynerchuk don't have statues on every corner. Members of man-made government like Lenin, Stalin, and Mao do.
While Vaynerchuk's struggle to decipher what consumers want and are willing to pay for, man-made government doesn't bother. It seeks to dictate what it believes consumers should want.
The free market is about individual expression and choice. Man-made government is about conformity and compliance.
In the free market, the consumer is king. He is free to buy, or not to buy. If the consumer dislikes anything about a merchant, he is free to ignore that merchant for the rest of his life. The merchant is powerless and can use no force to make the consumer return.
In man-made government, it is the government that is king. It creates chains like the "individual mandate," so that you buy from the merchants of the government's choice. Under man-made government, it is the consumer who becomes powerless, and who is punished if he chooses not to obey.
The free market, man's natural government, is always waiting in the wings. Unimaginable wealth for even the poorest individuals is only an idea away.
Man-made government fights to make sure that this idea is never entertained. Freedom is the enemy that should never see the light of day. It is to be feared.
Every once in awhile, freedom breaks through. When it does, it revolutionizes the world.
Man must to continue to re-discover this truth that (fortunately) never leaves us.
