2. Removing the legal status of personhood from corporate and limited liability structures: this is an interesting area to explore from a libertarian perspective.
3. Ban advertising: I cannot agree. People should never be prevented from speaking about any subject as long as they are not harassing someone else or harming private property.]]>
Government is not the salvation of the poor, the homeless, the insane or the broken. To believe so is to believe a lie. It doesn’t work, and government programs usually end up doing more harm than good.
Question for you about “wealthy business owners”: let’s say you are getting a sliver of the profits. What would you rather have, zero? I.e. no pay, because they didn’t hire you? Or would you rather just steal their money because they have it and you don’t. Don’t accuse others of selfishness when you would use the power of the government (read: guns) to take money from others.]]>
First of all, if it weren’t for capital owned by someone else being invested, you would be subsistence farming either on your own land or on someone else’s. By investment, I mean risk. Because some rich person was willing to risk loss of a significant amount of money, you are able to use a refrigerator. Similiarly, you are able to buy washing machines, dryers, dishwashers, dish soap, toothpaste and all the other necessities of life that you take for granted. Socialism, collectivism forced upon a mass of people such that they are stolen from to provide for others, did not produce those things.
Capital provides jobs. Again, without those “puny” people, you would have to find a way to produce everything you need on your own little plot of land. Think Little House on the Prairie: there’s nothing wrong with that life, but it’s a harder life than, I’m sure, you realize. Imagine trying to find a way to clean your teeth from the resources on your own land.
Why do you begrudge people who have worked hard to accumulate wealth by reinvesting it into labor over and over again? They provide many jobs; they bring good things to the rest of us.
I submit that you are merely envious and angry and filled with rage that is not only misplaced, but evil itself. You believe that stealing from others to satisfy your own desires is right. It is not.]]>
Does it make you feel good to pretend that your puny labor is really supporting half the United States citizens? And please allow me to ask this question of you hard working know it alls…….When we had the welfare system and we took care of our poor, what condition was our country in? Was it in recession like now, since we’ve been making all the money we want and cutting all the social services programs and calling regulation “socialism”?
God Bless America? For what?]]>
There are four distinct causes to homelessness:
1) Natural disaster
3) Laziness or poor choices
Everyone gets richer under capitalism. Everyone, except those doing very big business and those associated with government, gets poorer under socialism. This is a demonstrable, provable, historical fact.]]>
“Some see private enterprise as a predatory target to be shot, others as a cow to be milked, but few are those who see it as a sturdy horse pulling the wagon.”
“The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.”
“We contend that for a nation to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.”
“An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodileâ€”hoping it will eat him last.”
“The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is.”
“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy.”]]>
