Freedom of Speech vs Economic Liberty

George Will makes a very interesting argument - the same people who would attack attempted regulation on free speech are often the very same people who promote regulations that stifle economic liberty. I had not thought of it that way before.

In short - some people think the freedom to talk about your pursuit of happiness without government intervention is an unalienable right but the ability to try to act on getting that happiness by labor unencumbered by government regulation is not OK.
