      Is just that. I 'm on board wth a lot of the ideas of it when it comes
      to your body. Not so on board with the economic theory. They never
      adequately address the inequality issues capitalism always produces.

      That being said, I don't quite get the "under the table " quote. Was Freedman not reporting his fees to The IRS?

        usually, "well, some will be rich and some will be poor, and each will be responsible for their economic state." And they might cite "nature" as supporting their ideas. In nature, some creatures win and some creatures lose. Remember the Republican debates? It's sink or swim with a lot of these types. "Liberty" is the issue for them, not "inequality."
