And to look at the statement on its face, let me ask you rhetorically what is it that makes the marketplace continue to be 'better'? In my view, it is free association, the ability for the consumer to go where they wish to purchase what services or stuff they need or desire. That ability is what motivates the individual or businessman to provide better quality services or products, and to provide lower prices. Why does this, what I consider a bedrock principle, not translate to greater efficacy of government, when in all other areas or life (the market place, choosing a spouse, choosing a career) this freedom of choice makes things better? IMO it actually does, and this is one of those inconsistencies that I believe prove the lack of merits of some philosophies.
