I’d probably put myself down as someone who likes free markets, and hang around a people with similar views to my own.
I haven’t met a single person who truly believes in ‘zero regulation’ or zero state involvement (eg to prevent monopolies). Not one. The issue usually comes down to unique personal preferences on where to draw the line. You say tomayto, I say tomarto, that kind of argument.
Can you nominate any serious commentator one who actually believes in zero regulation or zero state involvement? I’m not asking you to name nutters – but people generally taken seriously.

Try reading US think tank output and James Buchanan
Do not forget that our Spudda is a prof of political economy:
Buchanan was largely responsible for the rebirth of political economy as a scholarly pursuit
