There is just a huge gaping question here which is this: the people who have done this, who have built this system, they always use a certain phrase. You know what it is: “free markets.” There’s a religion of the free market among the very people you’re describing. We’ve both written about this, we’ve documented this ideological obsession among these sort of Reagan conservatives. What you’re describing is not a free market in the least.

What's fascinating is that Walmart and Amazon are tremendously popular.

Also, the 1 percent is more like a 0.1 percent, really.
