:regulated by their own actions in a free market of private property. I don't believe that real-world corporations are benign

Now if the state, unions and citizens behaving as consumers can't regulate capitalism and rid us of the corporate menace, which you accept exists, why would letting these organisations behave as though they have licence make a difference?

That's just about as utopian as suggesting that a nationalised economy is more free and social than a capitalist one.

Try this analogue a little tree that's been made into a club wont put forth leaves.

:If you simply must know, I'd point you towards Ludwig von Mises, Murray Rothbard, and David Friedman.

Von Mises, should have known, I didnt know he was an anarchist anyway, or, sorry, claimed to be an anarchist, you cant be an anarchist without being egalitarian, Rothbard, I'd have listed him earlier but I wasnt sure, again, how to spell his name, I did mention Friedman by the way, the whole neo-liberal austrian school where very utopian and more ideological than factual.

Dont anyone say Hayek.

: Now, somebody (Stoller?) will probably say, "Pff! Murray Rothbard! I might have guessed!" without bothering to offer any actual analysis.
