THE GREAT LIE OF THE 20TH CENTURY
IT’S NOT CAPITALISM VS SOCIALISM but RULE OF LAW, MARKETS FOR CLASSES, and NATIONALISM of EUROPEANS VS RULE BY AUTHORITARIAN DISCRETION, MONOPOLY, and INTERNATIONALISM of MIDDLE EASTERNERS.
(Simple rules for moral people, and simple rule for immoral people.)
—“I think the issue could largely be the hierarchy of what we value. Rather than seeing capitalism as the best way to improve the material well-being of people, it became the goal itself. So, whereas before, the focus of life was family, faith, and folk (and the method by which you took care of your family was economic system), capitalism became the goal (“greed is good” rather than the more neutral “everyone operates in their self-interest” of Locke and Smith), and family, faith, and folk became secondary, tertiary, or a non factor. Communism is an evil, possibly the greatest evil to ever gain traction, but it’s not an evil because of the market conditions.”—Ethan Trice
Yeah. well who invented the term ‘capitalism’ and who advances it rather than rule of law?
