: If Libertarian capitalists like Gee are to be true to the enlightenment dream they claim they must forsake the sanctifying propertarianism they now espouse and unite with the anti-totalitarian socialists of such as myself who wouldnt mind small unexploitative markets operating alongside socialism in a manner that can be regulated by the consumer as the liberals intended.

Markets, by definition, are regulated by the consumer. In a socialist system, the market is run by the government, not by the consumer. All socialist systems will become totalitarian, at least until they fall under their own weight.
