I like your comments - they make one realize that it's not just left or right, but a lot of room in between for the correct solution to find itself. However, I don't think we're as free as your comments imply - we have actually been controlled by the very few with the large holdings. It was like that in the 1890's and gradually improved until the 1950-60's. I must look up the Pipes article. Please check that you use the word PRINCIPAL correctly. In my daily work I see it confused so often with PRINCIPLE - one is an adjective, the other a noun, and they have very different meanings. I think you meant to use PRINCIPLE as the end of your commentary.
