31. Freedom of choice and organization...

in (what I consider to be) a healthy captalist system, workers should be able to choose their employer. When workers representing a certain skill set organize and act as one, they then have incredible negotiating power. Corruption causes this all to break down, and the only way to prevent corruption is to pass the right legislation and enforce it. Also keep in mind, the only reason Walmart has been successful is because it largely depends on products produced by an oppressive, authoritarian government where little of the above exists.
