Many conservatives these days are proponents of a purer form of capitalism than currently exists. It was once known as laissez-faire capitalism. Under this theory, individuals would be free to rise (or fall) based on their own abilities. Do you think this is a good idea? Do you think you would be more likely to benefit or be hurt under such a system? Do you support the idea of a laissez-faire economic system? If so, why? And please explain why you think you would either benefit or be harmed by this purer form of capitalism.
