By now it has become quite rare, in our highly regulated world, to come across the old-fashioned phrase 'freedom of contract'. We live in a post-freedom world, where the most important thing is to equalise everything. In the fight against inequality, nobody has time to worry about freedom. We have truly have a come a long way since the ancient golden era of freedom of contract. But occasionally, when you're innocently and quietly reading a Supreme Court decision on why it's wrong to charge people fees to file complaints against their employers (surely anybody should be able to complain about other people for free?) you are suddenly confronted with the idea that notions of freedom of contract might actually be relevant to this situation.
