Trump Card – Summary, Analysis, and Criticisms

by | Jan 17, 2021

“This is capitalisms trump card.  It encourages creativity and empathy, and puts them at the service of the wants and needs of the people.The inequality the socialist left despises, isn’t created by the entrepreneur. It’s created by us.  The proud boast of Democratic socialism is that it puts the people in charge of the economy. What control do you have over the post office or the DMV? We vote in elections every two or four years, but as consumers we exercise our choices daily, directly through the market. The free market is far more reflective of popular consent, than democratic socialism. We don’t have to extend democracy from the political to the economic sphere, because we already have it.  Capitalism, not socialism, is the true form of social justice.”

– Dinesh D’Souza
