Sally Kohn Doesn't Understand Civil Society | National Review Online: "I’ll try to help. Conservatives argue in favor of the free market not because they like everything that it does, and not because they admire or agree with everybody who participates in it, but because they don’t want the government coercing behavior. But the free market is a system, not an outcome. And, as this post shows, this does not mean that players within the market are beyond criticism. Indeed, one’s support for a free market no more implies that one has to like all of its consequences than one’s support for a free press implies that one has to praise every newspaper or novel that escapes the censor’s ink. Would we say, “right-wingers are always going on about freedom of speech, but then Michael Moore makes Bowling for Columbine and conservatives are outraged!” Of course not."
