Our Free Market and Individual Liberty.
We have spoken at length about the vast differences between Capitalism and everything other than Capitalism. Yet it always seems to bear repeating that Capitalism is not a "system" of man; it is not a created or controlled thing, but a natural phenomenon. It comes into being only when men are free; that is, when they enjoy individual liberty, within reasonable constraints, to improve their own living condition. Men with such liberty engage in free commerce with each other, and that interaction creates the free market. This free market equals Capitalism. That's all it is.
That may be the best history-of-the-world in a nutshell that I have ever encountered. If we cannot "get along" peacefully enough to commercially deal with one another, the only alternative is to loot, plunder and enslave each other.
The last one may be the most important one. America is a nation of laws, not of men. The Constitution is supreme; no man may override or rise above the law. These factors are what produce that wonderful, rare thing called Equal Opportunity.
Everything else in the world - every system outside the American system - opposes equal opportunity.
Everybody wants to get a "leg up" on everyone else in the arena of commercial competition. The American system, while not perfect, provides the best and most fair competitive arena. Every other system involves "collectivization" of property, and/or of people, promoting equality of wealth and possessions over equality before the law, and in fact opposes any overall law regulating all men equally. In the worst cases, non-American systems involve looting, plundering and enslaving men. The exact opposite of serving men.
That's why Walter E. Williams described Capitalism as, not merely the most productive, but also the most moral system.
We have also spoken at length about the American guiding ethos, the "general" Christian sense of morality and strong adherence to the Judeo-Christian moral code that always affected the motives of the American Founders, the Framers of the Constitution, and the whole of the population. This super-high sense of Christian morality in the population is what Alexis de Tocqueville declared to be the source of American national "greatness."
It was our moral code that ended slavery, Jim Crow, segregation, etc. While our history has not been perfect, and we have had some pretty bad Presidents, Congresses and Courts, overall, it must be admitted that American historical progress has been highly moral, until relatively recent history.
The Democrat Party, and not a few Republicans, have been working hard to reverse all of that. It is clear that they despise
And that is to say that they despise equal opportunity, the free market and thus, Capitalism. They oppose the Constitution quite openly. Their most loud and vociferous opposition is to Christianity and Christian moral norms, the keeping and bearing of arms and the accumulation of private property. They seek to control our speech, what we can buy and sell, even what we eat. They quite clearly despise our Constitution, and they fully intend to relegate it to some dusty museum.
To be replaced with - what?
Our Military Power.
Faced with the very real military threat of global Communist expansion from the Soviet Union and China, America built up a huge military force and highly technical arsenal capable of once unimaginable destructive power. We met the threat with even greater threat. But. since the fall of The Wall and the end of the old Soviet Union, only America, alone in the free world, has kept up her military capabilities. Everyone else has more and more come to depend upon America for their own military defense. No one would attack them, because we wouldn't allow it.
Well, what happens to them when America is no more?
How many countries in the world today have the military capability of projecting significant, major, conquering force far beyond their own borders, to anywhere in the world?
Most other countries, including even NATO countries, would be hard pressed to defend themselves against serious aggression even within their own borders. Few, if any, would be able to invade, conquer and occupy any foreign capital. And that just happens to be the only possible way to win a war. There is an ancient rule of war that says:
If you cannot even project serious and sustained military force beyond your own borders, in the eyes of any ruthless conqueror, you are simply a victim in waiting.
In a theoretical post-American world, what would India do if attacked by China, or Russia, or both of them together? What would Australia do if attacked by China? To whom would they turn for aid? Who could render meaningful aid?
So here we are.
The Obamunist regime is doing everything in its power to attack and destroy our Free Market and our Individual Liberty, our Morality, and to weaken if not eliminate our Military Capability. Academia, the Mainstream Media and even Science is doing everything possible to help in that evil effort. They are all working together to bring America down.
Public Education is doing its best, with the aid of the Democrat Propaganda Wing (meaning the Mainstream Media) to dumb-down the citizenry and indoctrinate them in the badness of Capitalism in general and a false, evil history of America herself. It is working. We now have a gigantic and growing "Moron Vote" in America, threatening our own continued national existence. Note that Public Education is not listed among the limited and enumerated government powers in Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution, and so, like so many other giant federal bureaucracies, it has no Constitutional reason to exist. (Public Education was born of the Communist Manifesto.)
The ultimate goal seems to be to produce an unthinking citizenry like that of North Korea, who will adulate, bless and cheer their Great Leader even as they all starve to death. It's all they know. It's all they've ever been taught. It's all they ever learned. They simply don't know any better. Race, genetics, etc., have nothing to do with it; it's all a matter of education and indoctrination.
The Giant Ponzi-Scheme.
The dim-bulb idealists among the politicians, the academics, the teachers, the journalists and the scientists who see such Marxist themes as "Redistributionism" and "Social Justice" and "Equal Outcome" as good, desirable things, are among the worst of the morons. Rather than the more sinister Revolutionary connivers and schemers above them, they are mere Useful Idiots of the Revolution. The ones most often counted among the intellectual elite are in actual fact the most stupid. By far.
It shouldn't take more than a few minutes of objective critical thinking to realize the impossibility of "justice" achieved through "redistribution." In American redistribution, which is exactly what our graduated income tax is, more is taken from higher tax payers to benefit lower tax payers. In fact, today, half of us don't pay taxes, and the tax base is shrinking. When you keep elevating the graduated taxes higher and higher, you have fewer and fewer paying, more and more collecting, until eventually there are no more tax payers. At that point, all you have are consumers, and no source of income. The system collapses, and everyone begins to starve to death.
When everyone is on the dole, and dependent upon the government, and can no longer feed themselves, the nation is toast. The government cannot produce wealth; it can only consume it. If you take all the private wealth that exists in the country today and use it to feed the people, tomorrow, you will have to feed them again, but there will be no more wealth to take. You don't have to be a genius to figure this out. (The graduated income tax, too, came out of the Communist Manifesto.)
Satan is smiling.

"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction.
