These Monks are Fighting for Your Freedom | Right Progress

The monks of St Joseph Abbey can teach America a thing or two.  Not only is their case a touchstone of the Supreme Court’s handling of economic freedom, but it brings to life how state regulations can stifle the opportunity for regular Americans to succeed.  If the justices side with the monks, we can count a victory for economic freedom and equality before the law; if they turn them away, then state governments will be open to all manner of abuse and factious interests.

I've never really believed all the rubbish about "the home of free enterprise" since I learnt that typically an American will need a licence to open a business. Madness!
