i think it's ironic as fuck that the inspiration for advocates of "free" markets and capitalists would probably be  a socialist today.

If you're talking about Smith then that quote isn't meant in a "this is bad" kind of way, its a simple statement of fact and one that Smith and others of his social stature at the time would have agreed is a good thing.

It's like we would read that quote now and we automatically add "...and that's a bad thing" to the end because even modern liberals think being blatantly undemocratic is a bad thing, even if it interferes with capitalism. But at the time Smith and his peers would have automatically added "...and that's a good thing."

This is a pretty intredasting book I've been reading off and on the past year that talks a lot about that stuff, including Smith specifically https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1107750.The_Invention_of_Capitalism

For you, maybe, because your own pace seems to be limited by severe literacy problems.

Being illiterate in 2015 in the west would be cool because you wouldn't be able to use the Internet at all.  You'd probably grow big and strong and powerful.

No video games, eh?  That's weird.  What do you do, browse reddit and watch Netflix?
