: 'What can safeguard durable peace is not simply government by the people,' Mises wrote, 'but government by the people under unlimited laissez faire.'

'Laissez faire'---as in the monopoly corporations that manufacture and sell zillions of weapons which keep 'nationalist fervor' alive, I presume? 'Under' laissez faire, as in democracy subordinated to (those who control) the market? Doesn't sound like democracy at all.

BTW, that's von Mises.
