Every species acts in its own self-interest and in nature we call this the survival of the fittest. A rain forest is a perfect dynamic of the global economy. Billions of species all interact to form a synergy we call the whole. This is what Smith observed.
The Invisible Hand is nothing more than each species surviving. Government raises taxes, man responds out of his instinct to survive. Lawyers become politicians because they think they can rule the world by writing a law that MANDATES people behave the way they decree. They are DEAD WRONG! They then do not hesitate to prosecute anyone who disagrees as some sort of criminal. When that does not succeed, then send in the troops and will murder the masses for their disobedience.
Look at Snowden. They pronounce him a traitor, threaten to kill him, then are shocked that he turns over everything and seeks asylum? Duh? Only an arrogant power hungry fool would expect him to return so they can keep him in a cell naked, without heat, torture him at will, and then give him a mock trial and execute him. They cannot see the world beyond their own greed for power.
