Statism is the thought and idea that some entity with the vested interests of power and control can know what is best for each subjective human being. Statism erroneously and necessarily undermines what the grace of God has provided for humankind – the market process – which is where every subjective human being comes together in social cooperation. A part of that process is ethical development which is also undermined when statism deprives humankind of the market process.
The great irony is that when the ideology of statism takes hold of the minds, then people look to the State for ethics!!! What an illusion that becomes.

Market information is acquired through the experience of market participation. And entrepreneurial action is taken in response to the changes that occur in the market data, assuming that the changes are detected.
So it is that prospective decisions of buyers and sellers at every step in the production process are subjected to this competitively alert scrutiny.
Imagine how bleak the world would be without this dynamic process driven by competitive entrepreneurship.
