Having declared health care "not a right" in his infamous WSJ op-ed piece, Whole Foods CEO John Mackey did an interview
with the libertarian Reason Magazine - Rush Limbaugh: "A good, good
magazine" - to defend free markets and "conscious capitalism." No
wonder he sells $5 flavored water and $17/lb. cheese.

Mackey on post-Cold-War capitalism: "We won, but people didn't
come to love capitalism. People are always attacking it for being
greedy and selfish and only caring about money."
