The costly and not 'Free-market'

notes on GP 'detox' campaign:
detox nike detox adidas
that's a starting point
but the real challenge is
to detox the very system
that allows nike and adidas
to 'just do it!'[ie freemarket]

'freemarket' is an oxymoron.
freemarket is a market where exchanges are free,
meaning it doesn't cost anyone anything
[ie internalisation of all real costs]
to exchange goods, now that's a freemarket!

this is the challenge.
are we ready?
[not is the likely answer.]
