A moral case for Capitalism,

In the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, it is easy to see why depending on the government for help is not a good idea. That's not only true in times of need, but also true in daily decision making. The free market is not a person and therefore not against anyone except someone not willing to work hard. The reason you allow the free market to set price for something is because supply and demand help the greatest number of people possible given the current situation. When government steps in to help you have a lot of things in the mix......political favors for some people, shortages, and loss of liberty. As a result many people and their ideas suffer once the government invades Capitalism. Is that where we want to be?
