The free market and peace

The free market is the only economic system where we can disagree yet live peacefully. My wife likes Coke while I prefer Pepsi. In fact, I'd rather drink a glass of baking soda than a glass of Coke (Ok, a little hyperbole for effect). Due to the free market in soft drinks, my wife and I can live happily ever after. Under a hampered economy, or plain socialism, the fight becomes which flavor will be served by the scowling apparachik wearing a faded Babushka? Choose freedom everytime.
