    I read it too. Conservatives always talk about the free market but that's the last thing corporations want. There's a lot more profit in un-free, monopolized markets.
    From Chapter 4:

    In the last generation, we have been taught to believe in a philosophy of what is sometimes called "free-market fundamentalism." As we noted in the preface, this philosophy is designed not to illuminate real-world phenomena but to hide the real-world use by the rich of such man-made institutions as corporations and the marketplace - and sometimes even our own governments - to seize our properties and our liberties.
