free market

The quotable Kevin Carson:

Legacy ownership of resources by the heirs and beneficiaries of colonial rule is the elephant in the living room. The faux “free market” rhetoric of the ASI and other neoliberals will be nothing but bullshit until they first deal with initial questions of justice in the starting distribution of property titles. Otherwise, their version of the “free market” really just means a massive looting spree, followed by the proclamation “No coercive intervention in the market starting… NOW!” Real free marketers include Georgists, the radical Lockean followers of Rothbard, and others who acknowledge the history of primitive accumulation, “written in letters of fire and blood”; they are willing to face the issue, and void all state grants of land and resources to absentee rentiers.
