IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN people trade freely between and amongst themselves. When freedom is allowed to flourish — and many times when it is not — capitalism rises: from the cracks in the pavement, from the dry earth, from the sere and arid desert of oppression and the overreach of states, people — simply… people. Governments call it black markets or Systeme D. They wrinkle their noses at it. They tut-tut that it is unregulated and pays no taxes. Political poseurs may thumb their noses at authority and proclaim the end of the state. But the people. We… the people. Simply go about our business, minding our own, and leaving our neighbor to his.
