Free market traders with education, enlightenment and refinement  
(civilized) have the advantage over savages.
Markets regulated by laws of privilege (such as the corporate veil)  
favor the ruthless and arbitrary over the rational.
I think a universal ban on collective title to property would go a  
long way toward civilizing markets.
The golden rule seems like the only rule we really need.  Violent  
punishment of human behavior has not proven effective.
In a free society, loss of market share would supplant stupid  
violence as a motivator.  Got any better ideas?  -- Thomas
