"Free Market Capitalism" is an Oxymoron

"Capitalism" is definitely a problematic word. Geez, now what are we going to call anarcho-capitalists? Anarcho-freemarketists? Heh.

I guess the author thinks that the word 'capitalism' has been corrupted but the term 'free market' has not?

Capitalism gets its meaning from the word capital. Pretty simple. Free market is pretty self explanatory. We're going to worry about all the people who misuse the English language now? Like the author, for example?

What an annoying title.
