Unfettered Capitalism

Sometimes, it’s worth taking a moment to consider the words people use to describe things. Think for a minute about the term that many people use to describe the free market: “unfettered capitalism.” Then, consider the dictionary definition of “fetter” (from OS X’s built-in dictionary):

fetter: verb: restrain with chains or manacles, typically around the ankles, or: restrict or restrain (someone) in an unfair or undesirable fashion.
