I find it curious that so many, apparently educated people jump up and down about free market capitalism whenever some socially responsible agenda or suggestion is put forth.  They howl words like Socialism, Communism, Marxism and big government control, and whilst that might be a fair call from their perspective, the simple fact is they are starting from an erroneous understanding.

A university professor went to visit a famous Zen master. While the master quietly served tea, the professor talked about Zen. The master poured the visitor’s cup to the brim, and then kept pouring.
