I'll bite. And I'm certain you won't respond. But here we go: name three items that *you*, in practical reality, were unable to find/do because of a "lack of a free market". Not a hypothetical "I want to shoot an eagle with a grenade launcher" freedom, or "having design standards on roads means my taxes go up" but a product or service you want that's unavailable. And the thing is you don't get to make assumptions based on your options. You need to use concrete examples.

You know who has a free market? Somalia.
It's not that socialism and regulation makes things impossible. It makes things much more difficult, increases costs, and creates capital misallocation. At some point it fails as people run out of money as there are more takers than workers left.

I would start with moving states to continue doing my job.

I'm picturing myself laying by the pool with a bunch of hot ladies in bikini's and a DJ blasting tune from the roof.
Sounds like a good party to me. Buuuut there are some rather pedestrian looking houses around so I don't think I can come.

No. It's gawd's blessing. You poor or sick....gawd don't like you
There's something to this. I worked my ass off in a couple of classes in college to barely scrape by while the god-fearing types hardly showed up and crushed it.

I've also had lazy bosses that made tons of money vs. their minions working their fingers to the bones that used church as a backdrop no matter how corrupt they were.

that island napoleon got sent to
Now that seems like an extreme reaction to having a concrete company next to your muffler shop. Not really even seeing the concern.

he started as lying on an online forum then moved into wanting to hook up with 12 year olds. happens all the time these days. some people just shouldnt be on the intronet. chemically castrated sure, but not internet.
