This is one of the main reasons that there has never been a truly free market economy unperturbed by governmental or religious forces in the history of the world, and why I find it hard to believe (woefully) that it will ever be much more than a pipe dream. The heart of the matter is that the majority of the people in the world don’t want to be self-sufficient determiners of their own destiny. They want the government to lead them, or the church to lead them, or their local witch doctor or strongman to lead them. Read this article– some of these people are highly educated and are probably prospering economically, yet with the greater freedoms they receive through the slow expansion of capitalism and democracy, do they seek greater economic freedoms, smaller government, the veneration of the individual, of a free but just society? No. They worship death. The enlightened few of the world can reach for the stars all they want, and until they learn to live with ignoring the plight of the teeming masses beyond the drawbridge (or simply decide to eradicate them,) their feet will remain shackled to the ground. I’d love to see that it need not be so, but history tells otherwise.
