Before the enlightenment Lords and Barons received formal privileges from the Crown. After the enlightenment, and all the various revolutions, they were then free to negotiate their own privileges with both government cronys and other captains of industry without the approval of neither King nor Pope. How this reality differs from "the Free Market" is merely speculation as there has NEVER existed a Free Market.
