Question: What's the difference between really big, all powerful business, and really big, all powerful government?
Conservatives normally think of business and government being at odds with each other, because big business needs to be free to make money in order to stay big and get bigger, and, conversely, big government needs more and more of that money to stay big and get bigger.
There is some point in business growth at which power becomes more important to business than mere market share or profit, because power - raw political power - once attained, can be used to simply commandeer market share and profit. At that point, the motive driving big business begins to switch from the profit motive to the political power motive.
We have railed against political parties in this website from day one, as being unconstitutional and therefore illegal government entities actually running the once Constitutional government of America, completely outside of all Constitutional constraints. But, we know that we are just whistling in the wind on that point, because that just ain't gonna change any time soon.
Once upon a time the Republcrat party was popularly held to be the party of big business, and the Marxocrat party was popularly held to be the party of big government. And thus the predominant popular (and perhaps popularized through political propaganda) political myth was that that was the major if not sole difference between the two parties.
And there always was a grain of truth in it; the Marxocrat party was, after all, Marxist, and the Republicrat party was anti-Marxist, or at least supposedly so. But where the supposedly Marxist and the supposedly anti-Marxist parties met and found common ground was on Washington's K street, which had become the common feeding trough of all Washington politicos.
As Rush Limbaugh pointed out years ago, professional politicians in Washington D.C. oversee the largest continuously growing and continuously flowing river of money on earth. And, the greatest temptation to personal corruption. The way American politicians become millionaires on government salaries is by guiding some of that river of money toward
through political control of all that money.
And, again, what's the difference between the governments and the businesses who get the favored treatment from the politicos? Nothing.
What's in between the big businesses and the big governments, and opposed to both of them, is the bourgeois. Most of us. We, the bourgeoisie. The butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker; the independent, self-sustaining, make-my-own-way private family businessman, and all of his independent I-will-work-wherever-I-choose-to-work employees. What is commonly known everywhere as the middle-class.
The business man who doesn't want to work for anyone else, and the employee who is free to work where and when and under conditions he and he alone approves of.
Both big business and big government hate that.
Now, you may think of Donald Trump, his father and his children as being big business people, and they are, of course; but they are small potatoes compared to Amazon, or Microsoft. Donald Trump is a whole lot more of a bourgeois than a corporatist or monopolist.
He looks at the world through liberated and liberating bourgeois eyes.
The reason big business and big government alike hate and despise Trump is that, when he made America great again, he did it largely by unleashing the bourgeois middle class, and letting them once again make profit and prosper by their own diligence, industriousness and honest work.
Today, you can hardly tell the difference between the biggest of the big businesses and the American government. The Internet and Social Meida moguls, by all appearances, are the government. You may say that they just do the government's bidding, in violating our freedom of speech, but how do you know that the government is not doing their bidding, in not stopping them from doing that?
The differences between government and big business are vague, and possibly non-existent. They appear to be, if not officially, one and the same thing.
If you wonder why so many big shot Republicrats are anti-Trump, that's why. Where they join with the Marxocrats is where they join with the big business and the bigger-business motive.
They, too, work to crush the bourgeoisie.
Our anti-Trump government is mimicking the government of Red China, which calls itself and pretends to be Communist, but is actually Fascist, and little different than Mussolini's Italy.
And in the Fascist variant of Marxism, there is no despised bourgeois middle-class any longer; there are only two classes: the ruling class, and the ruled class.
The ruling class consists of big government and big business.
The ruled class consists of employees of big government, and employees of big business.
And everyone else is in prison or dead.
Many if not most big shot Republicrat politicos don't even know that, and they aren't smart enough to figure it out.
The only thing Truth has going for Him in this world is us.
The restoration of Truth = Reality in the hearts and minds of men is now totally dependent upon you and me; if we don't do it, it won't get done.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
Broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matthew 7:13–15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator's supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights." --Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others." --St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
