Control of what market? If you examine any exploitative monopoly you can trace its power to the state, otherwise it would not exist. Do you know what fractional reserve lending is, and how the artificially low federal funds rate causes malinvestment? You are ignorant if you present history as one sided as you do. Without the evils of capitalism, free exchange between two people, you would still be struggling under a subsistence lifestyle dominated by the state. You should broaden your vision and accept the benefits the world has made through capitalism. True the labor practice during the industrial revolution was poor, but where would we be without such revolution? And we are past that era where worker abuse goes unnoticed. In todays information age, even without current worker protection laws, a company would not last long with such abuse. It's not fair to pin a dark period for labor, which lead to the largest increase in standard of living ever, as 'the history of capitalism'. I agree with having laws to protect workers, and we should have adjusted our laws according to the changing industrial climate... and that's why we were a Constitutional Republic.
