The Free Market with it’s massive wealth creating and wealth controlling abilities, (inefficient businesses are destroyed) is itself destroyed by the monopoly on force and the monopoly to tax, aka Government.

Unfortunately the U.S. Constitution didn’t go far enough to control government, ergo excessive public employee incomes and benefits.

In 1776 the founders could not foresee the enormous efforts to use the government itself as a personal cash cow thereby avoiding the need to control the costs of government.

The new science of Marxism used class distinctions to gain wealth thru government. Civilization succumbed to the siren call of the common good to generate wealth for special interests to replace the efforts required to earn wealth via markets.
