A market society

You ultimately judge the civility of a society not by how it treats the rich, the powerful, the protected and the highly esteemed, but by how it treats the poor, the disfavoured and the disadvantaged - Bryan Stevenson.

Bryan Stevenson (Milton (Delaware), 14 november 1959) is een Amerikaans mensenrechtenactivist en hoogleraar rechtsgeleerdheid. Hij werd bekend om zijn strijd tegen vooroordelen in het rechtssysteem over arme mensen en kleurlingen en zet zich in om onrechtvaardige doodstraffen tegen te gaan, met name in het zuiden van de Verenigde Staten waar de erfenis van het racisme nog altijd merkbaar is.

A society based around a market economy, especially one in which political and economic life are dominated by ideas of individual freedom and self-interest.

1960s; earliest use found in Journal of Political Economy.

Cyclist mother asks some helpful people in the park to help her with directions on a map. While she’s at it, she points to a loose screw that’s fallen to the ground from her bicycle’s child seat, and asks the prank victims to reattach it. Then, she pedals away, but while she’s cycling, the baby seat comes loose and the kid goes tumbling to the ground. The mom even keeps riding for awhile, dragging the poor little kid on the cement path – to the horror of the watching prank victims, who believe that they’re responsible for the accident.
