Laissez-faire vs. socialism is, as I said, not really relevant.

What is the economy except human interaction? Seriously. The
economy is a word that represents the millions of voluntary
transactions between millions of people every day. That's what it
Laissez-faire means the government steps back and lets people
voluntarily interact without asking permission or taking orders
from some idiot bureaucrat or enforcer, so long as their actions
are not criminal (with "criminal" being defined as harming the

in voluntary exchange not going to lead to
About the comment, kids, that's what happens when you do drugs AND read liberal rags.
Rebuttal: People forget what an economy is at its base, naked root.
It's but human interaction as the first sentence explains. An economy is
a self-regulating, self-sustaining, delicate ecosystem of daily human
interactions. It organically grows from the bottom-up. Modern liberalism
prefers a top-down, authoritative approach of manufactured regulation
concentrated in the hands of a few politicians. It's their outlook that
leads to totalitarianism.
Just look at Quebec. Quebec's economy is basically "fonctionnaire" or
civil servant or a branch plant economy of American companies coming in
to give jobs. There's very little in-between. There's little in-between
because of the interference of the state in the economy. THAT'S the part
of the equation people should consider studying - the unintended
consequences of that position. Add the retarded language laws and you
have an anemic, non-innovative economy dependent on outside factors as
well as state control to keep it going.
But hey, maitre chez nous!
