Chaotic Law of the Jungle – Statism v. Libertarianism

by | Jul 31, 2020

Businesses are always eager for consumers to buy their product or service. On the free market, the consumer is king or queen and the “providers” are always trying to make profits and gain customers by serving them well.

Whereas the free market is a peaceful cooperative place where everyone benefits and no one loses; when government supplies the product or service, every consumer is treated as using a resource only at the expense of his fellow men. Th e “public service” arena, and not the free market, is the dog-eat-dog jungle.
