Although unhampered capitalism reigns as the harmonious social system of voluntary exchanges…the enemies of personal liberty and economic freedom ferociously attack it. These violators of individual rights attempt to force their brand of socialism on defenseless men and women. The politically correct BS remains one of their favorite missiles of destruction. Fortunately, we still possess something of immense value, our intellectual weapons.
What is Capitalism?
Capitalism (free enterprise) is an economic concept of civilization based on the private ownership and control of the means of production.
Your mind perceives the system of unhampered capitalism gives you the ability to control your destiny. You are free to make your own decisions and decide which path you want to embark on which allows you the freedom to pursue life, liberty and happiness.
The system of unhampered capitalism supplies everyone the ability to choose. Happily, all voluntary exchanges are legal which makes it a completely open system. The government’s only function is to protect the individual’s life, liberty and property. Involuntary exchanges are illegal because these types of anti-social activities interfere with a person’s freedom of choice.
What is Socialism?
Now let’s see what socialism is all about.
Socialism is a system of social organization that calls for public (State) ownership of the means of production. The totalitarian state owns everything and everyone’s life.
You can see why people get confused about socialism. The term public ownership deludes people into believing they will share ownership of production and consumption instead of “greedy” capitalists stealing their efforts.
In reality the State owns everything and the hapless citizen is lucky if he’s left a few crumbs. The mass poverty of men and women in the USSR, Cuba and Third World Countries tells a sordid tale of misery
Now you begin to realize socialism falls down as a system because the State owns your life by owning the means of production. You as an individual can only follow the orders of those in charge. Sadly, the State restricts the actions you can take to improve your well-being. Instead of the decisions of millions determining the organization of society, only a few make the decisions. And since everyone acts in what he or she believes to be in their own best interest, party leaders enhance their well-being at the expense of their subjects.
Voluntary versus Involuntary Exchanges
Socialism comes in different brands such as communism, fascism, Nazism and syndicalism. Since those socialist systems have a bad name because of their atrocities and failures, would-be dictators and politically correct animals have to gradually institute their tyrannical goals and desires.
You may wonder how they do that. They begin accomplishing their evil agenda through government interventionism, slowly destroying the capitalistic social system.
Unhampered capitalism guarantees there is no interference with voluntary exchanges. In order to subvert this harmonious system, liberty violators begin passing laws against certain voluntary exchanges. If that doesn’t work they resort to excess taxes or draconian regulations. Regardless, their interventionism slowly eats away at the personal liberty and economic freedom of capitalism.
Incidentally, here’s a definition of interventionism.
Interventionism is the practice of government interference in the marketplace. The government legally hampers the market economy. Don’t you think that definition says it all?
Every time someone spouts off about how the government should do something, he or she advocates stomping on individual rights.
Perfect examples of the failure of interventionism involve prohibition and the disastrous drug war. Now we have the spectacle of the supreme liberty violator, Attorney General Jeff Sessions wanting to accelerate the war against marijuana. That’s why I’m offering the book “Defeat the Lies of the Anti-Drug Crusader” for free.
In addition, the continuous boom and bust cycles our economic system experiences involve the Fed and the government interfering with interest rates and increasing the money supply. Minimum wage laws demonstrate another way progressives sabotage the market place. Also, the progressive tax system guarantees newcomers will never accumulate enough capital to challenge Big Business.
The Ultimate Scam
Here’s some information you will find difficult to swallow. Social altruists exceed man-eating beasts as some of the most dangerous creatures on earth. These would be dictators purposely attack your individual rights. Yes, that’s right. They foster failure in order to accumulate power at your expense.
These creators of human misery toss you bait in the form of social schemes, claiming they’re for the “good of society.” Once hapless citizens take the bait, they become hopelessly aligned with economic situations that include inflation, crippling government regulations, debilitating wars, confiscation of savings, violations of personal liberty and freedom, etc. etc. When you’re hooked, you suffer through a vicious cycle of seeing your values vanish into nothingness. Tragically, many of your dreams and desires end up in the possession of members of the political and financial establishment.
Are you ready for the shocking truth? According to David Stockman one-time budget director for Ronald Reagan and author of “The Great Deformation: The Corruption of Capitalism in America” “Maybe 100,000 people “live large” off today’s $95 trillion casino. By contrast, according to the Social Security Administration’s wage records, there were 100 million workers who held any kind of paying job during 2013, who earned a collective total of just $1.65 trillion that year.” And it’s getting worse. The establishment has pulled what rates as one of the biggest scams in the history of mankind.
You just saw a perfect example of how social altruism works…and it’s obviously not for your benefit.
Government interventionism manifests as a greater and greater downturn for the middle class because it hampers the market economy. To put it bluntly, the evil bastards rob you blind. Don’t ever believe your government exists to help you. If you accept that illusion, you might as well surrender. The only kind of ‘help” you will receive from a member of the establishment resembles a situation where a “doctor” purposely breaks both of your arms, sets the bones (crookedly) and then demands gratitude and payment for his services.
The Harmony of Capitalism
Do you realize how harmonious unhampered capitalism is? Everyone acts in their own best interest; however, in order to satisfy their needs and desires they must satisfy the needs and desires of others.
Here’s something we need to realize. The marvelous market economy encourages individuals to trade value for value. Living at the expense of others, which is tragically encouraged and subsidized by big government, won’t cut the mustard. You satisfy people’s most urgent desires if you want to succeed and prosper.
Are you aware of the marvelous results interrelated market processes accomplish? Well, here’s something that might surprise you. It’s all about mutual cooperation. According to the great economist Ludwig von Mises, the market process is the adjustment of the individual actions of the various members of the market society to the requirements of mutual cooperation. You may wonder why the Mainstream Press hasn’t notified you of this basic fact of reality.
Think about how truly wonderful voluntary exchanges that guide market phenomena are. All the interconnected actions in the marketplace direct the individual’s activities into those areas in which he best serves the needs and desires of his fellow man. Incredibly, people achieve the desired results without any outside compulsion and coercion.
One of the legendary pioneers of Rock ‘n’ Roll Chuck Berry wrote and sang the song “School Day.” In a famous, exciting verse he sings “Hail, Hail rock and roll. Deliver me from days of old. Long live rock and roll.”
I say “Hail! Hail! unhampered capitalism.” You know, it was capitalism that delivered the masses from the days of old, from poverty and destitution…filling their horn of plenty with goods and services previously unheard of. Unfortunately, we have never experienced the marvels of unhampered capitalism. Governments and special interests have sabotaged it from the start with destructive schemes of government interventionism and anti-life systems of socialism.
The marvelous market economy (unhampered capitalism) is a magnificent combination of cooperation and competition that fully harmonizes with human nature. We remain in awe at the simplicity and harmony of universal and yes, economic laws.
Do you want the freedom to accomplish your dreams and desires, to live by your highest values? Then you must support unhampered capitalism.
