The only reason it takes government intervention at times, is that the marketplace is so competitive that we need a level playing field in an otherwise sometimes wild west economy.
A competitive marketplace is the level playing field. Equal opportunity does not mean equal results.
I agree, the game is always played where everyone starts at the starting line.. the outcomes are due to giftings (not earned) and hard work.
The issue in the end is your perception of how much total control you will allow if the monopoly of service no matter how good it is does not allow the common man to make a living and feed his family.
Hence the moral, dare I say it, responsibility to give others a leg up and prevent predatory behaviour....
Having said that, life isn’t fair and I really am a capitalist and I am always disturbed by those wanting equal outcomes without working but I am also frustratedly those who would vulture the weak.
