The concept of free competition enforced by law is a grotesque contradiction in terms.

A Quote by Deepak Chopra on free market, moraliy, intuition, and consciousness

...there's a disconnect between public and private morality. What corporations and governments do (ruining people's retirement funds, killing an enemy en masse) is unthinkable for the individual. Few societies have successfully bridged this gap. The only answer I can come up with is that only consciousness can prevail. When you find yourself having to make a difficult moral choice, your choice comes intuitively. One person automatically resorts to violence, another automatically resists violence. In the larger scheme this doesn't mark the difference between good and bad. It marks the stages of evolution that consciousness has always gone through and will continue to.

A Quote by Fred Kofman on commerce, business, self-interest, and free market

Every act of commerce is an act of mutual service. Even though it can be motivated by self-interest, the market system channels that selfish energy towards helping others.

A Quote by Fred Kofman on business, capitalism, conscious capitalism, and free market

The only way to enter the market is with helping hands. The voluntary exchange  of goods and services is a mechanism that rewards those who are ready to serve their fellow men. Contrary to all pseudo-spiritual, socialist and fascist arguments, the marketplace is a space of freedom where human beings can cooperate in a spirit of mutuality. Whoever enriches himself (legitimately) in the market is someone who offers goods and services that are appreciated by those who buy them.
