Description: Does mass democracy presume freedom of private property, free labor, and market relations as fundamental rights of the individual? Or does the market mean capital's domination over individuals, negating democracy? Does democratic "freedom" involve restraining capitalism? Or does capitalism involve limiting democracy through undemocratic institutions like rights and central banks?
