Respected mediator and author Bernard Mayer suggests in his book, Beyond Neutrality , that conflict resolvers would be much more respected and better utilized if they acted as advocates as often as they act as neutrals.  By understanding conflict dynamics and conflict systems as well as they do, mediators are uniquely positioned to be able to offer effective negotiation training and coaching to activists who do not know how to champion their cause effectively. Most people in difficult conflicts, Mayer explains, do not want to compromise. They want to win. To the extent that mediators can help them win (while perhaps allowing the other side to win some of what they want as well), everyone will be better off.
How can racism stem from a free-market perspective? That’s quite a leap in logic. A free market can allow racism to exist but it also punishes it to a certain extent. Rothbard certainly didn’t agree with government regulations that punished the Chinese and blacks during the late 1800s and early 190ss. Unions forbade membership of minorities and Catholics for economic reasons. Government intervention is far more racist than a free market because it restricts supply and allows those in power (WASPs) to choose their own and exclude others. This happened time and time again in the late nineteenth/early twentieth century.
