Capitalism involves far more cooperation than competition—think of the number of mutually beneficial transactions you’ve had today compared to the number of competitions you’ve been in today - Chris Freiman, author of Why It's OK to Ignore Politics Democratic socialists sometimes object to capitalism on the grounds that it’s unduly competitive but democracy also looks pretty competitive to me - Chris Freiman, author of Why It's OK to Ignore Politics
Laci Green is Wrong: Democratic Competition vs. Free Market Competition
In environments where there's a lot of competition, people tend to lie out their ass and you can apply this to any competitive situation. Take capitalism. As industrialization took full effect, the Federal Government had to interfere because there was so much false advertising. - Laci Green The concept of "unregulated dog-eat-dog competition" is frequently attributed to capitalism even though it applies more so to democracy. Democracy, also known as Mob Rule by the Ignorant, involves people competing for who gets to coercively rule over everyone else, while the free market competes to better...
Empower the Workers: Decriminalize Economic Activity Between Consenting Adults
The most reliable and effective protection for most workers is provided by the existence of many employers. As we have seen, a person who has only one possible employer has little or no protection. The employers who protect a worker are those who would like to hire him. Their demand for his services makes it in the self-interest of his own employer to pay him the full value of his work. If his own employer doesn't, someone else may be ready to do so. Competition for his services—that is the worker's real protection. - Milton Friedman, Free to Choose
Chris Rock’s New Special Exposes His Political Ignorance
A common claim among Democrats is that, "It's not that people don't want to be educated, they just haven't been given the opportunity, thus government spending on education needs to increase." If there were ever a group of people capable of "educating" themselves it would be American celebrities. Yet it seems as though there is a secret contest among them to see who could be the most historically, economically, and philosophically illiterate. The most recent example comes from Chris Rock's "Selective Outrage" Netflix special where he says, "It's the Royal Family...they invented colonialism."...
The Truth About Slavery – Thomas Sowell
https://youtu.be/qNiy2NfVQWg For centuries before, Europeans had enslaved other Europeans, Asians had enslaved other Asians and Africans had enslaved other Africans. Only in the modern era was there both the wealth and the technology to organize the mass transportation of people across an ocean, either as slaves or as free immigrants. Nor were Europeans the only ones to transport masses of enslaved human beings from one continent to another. North Africa’s Barbary Coast pirates alone captured and enslaved at least a million Europeans from 1500 to 1800, carrying more Europeans into...
How the Bolsheviks Took Russia – Sean McMeekin, Ph.D. & Matthew Raphael Johnson, Ph.D.
https://youtu.be/wNLqZZApV0A For impressive evidence of Western participation in the early phase of Soviet economic growth, see Antony C. Sutton's Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development, 19171930 (Stanford, Calif., 1968), which argues that "Soviet economic development for 19171930 was essentially dependent on Western technological aid" (p. 283), and that "at least 95 per cent of the industrial structure received this assistance" (p. 348). - Zbigniew Brzezinski, Between Two Ages, p. 56 BitChute
James Corbett: Two Questions Democrats and Republicans Can’t Answer!
https://youtu.be/vyLrkqHuQf4 There exist two blatant contradictions which roughly ninety-nine percent of intellectuals, journalists, and voters erroneously believe. On the one hand, they say that the free market must be regulated in order to prevent monopolies. It is assumed that these monopolies would have such great power over the market that their customers would be forced to settle for products far more expensive than, and inferior to, those that would be offered under competitive market conditions. On the other hand, these intellectuals, journalists, and voters explicitly advocate that...
War is a Euphemism for Theft Funded Mass Murder
The libertarian’s basic attitude toward war must then be: it is legitimate to use violence against criminals in defense of one’s rights of person and property; it is completely impermissible to violate the rights of other innocent people. War, then, is only proper when the exercise of violence is rigorously limited to the individual criminals. - Murray N. Rothbard, Ph.D., War, Peace, and the State
