“Free market” is code for deregulating everything. It is what the billionaires always want, and it is what has been fought back for a couple of centuries.

It is code to eliminate things like child labor laws, worker protections, environmental protection, consumer rights. It empowers corporations and disempowers the rest of us.

There used to be children cleaning out smokestacks, fingers in the sausage, diseased meats, etc. Then the government stepped into their “free market” and made them follow some rules.

Don’t pass on right wing extremist propaganda without examining its real implications and meanings.

The mindlessness on the right often exceeds the mindlessness of the other side.
