Queer how badly examined and explained the free market system is. E. g. it is called competitive when it is really highly cooperative (while still competitive): yet: to get something from government (socialistic system), one applies and people passively respond (or else government agency initiates and the outside agency is sucked along). Whereas in a private transaction, as soon as a project (sale, etc.) is sensed by 2 parties to be mutually beneficial, each helps the other actively and accommodatingly.
Cf. e. g. getting a rental unit from Government and private renter.
Cf. e. g. getting research grant from government and making a research contract with private research company.
rules of the free and intelligent marginal utility principle of the competitive marketplace, the few soldiers who do all the killing in war.
