    how the hell did you pull that from my post?
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    That is the question I asked. I come from the free market perspective that free trade should be free 100%(99%) of the time.

    You respond to me with that. I accepted this as a criticism of capitalism. The free market however does not permit this mentality even though the free market is capitalist so the free market must be going against nature or the free market is not capitalist. Either way it sounds like you're saying that capitalism is the blame for free trade being difficult since capitalist institutions are advocating trade restrictions because it makes them more money or something like that.

    Since you've established that the nature of capitalism is the reason why free trade is difficult, I had to wonder what would make free trade easier. Since the nature of capitalism does not, the free market can't unless the free market is to be considered noncapitalist since free trade in the free market goes against the nature of capitalism. This led me to believe that socialism, which isn't capitalist, can create more free trade?

    Perhaps you have a different -ism in mind so I'll ask differently.

    spud_meister, would noncapitalism create more free trade? if yes, what -ism would it be?
