Of course, the free market operates within a social and moral framework to mitigate injustices and unnatural inequities.
The role of government in a free market is to keep the rules fair for everyone, avoid creating inequities, and adjust rules to overcome market failures (such as monopolies, public goods, externalities, etc.).
