I set the price of much of my labor at zero.  It would be a direct assault
on my freedom to prevent me from doing so.  That would be akin to
outlawing charity, an action that I believe is self-evidently evil.

So you advocate making it worse by removing even more freedoms?  Hasn't
that been tried before?
