No doubt you'll point to the success of the market re Uber and go hey, if the market for lower taxi fayres wasn't there then the market for zero houred/self employed fucks without sick pay wouldn't exist 
It's a bit low rent and hardly aspirational, imo. Which leads us onto moral guardianship and, well, leadership in general.

It's a sad state of affairs that governments needs to legislate in order to raise the morality bar. Had racial discrimination not been legislated for, terms like 'nigger in the woodpile' could be commonplace. Homosexuals would remain persecuted. Weekends and bank holidays would be the dream of the extremist left.  People are cunts though and need legislation.

These are all moral issues, like it or not, and small-statism, would have left matters to the market.

It's your choice: deliberate marketisation for the benefit of the few and powerful or unintentional incomptence that affects the few (from across the spectrum).
The state van do some things apparently

The state enabling markets? I'm sure someone else said something about that....
