A reader asked what one can do to defend capitalism given the ongoing threats to freedom and when one lacks a platform. Here are some ideas, based on my own experience and advice from communication experts.
Ayn Rand’s assessment of modern “liberals” differs radically from the criticisms leveled by conservatives, a group she is often wrongly lumped in with.
The top players who made the pandemic response happen are gradually being taken out of power and being replaced by people who believe the exact same things as their predecessors. And they have every stated intention of doing it all again, under whatever pretext. The great calamity is now the template for the future.
Reason, Rights, and Science Are What Made America Great
It is precisely because our health care is so important to each of us that we need to be especially careful to preserve and protect the rights of physicians and other health care providers.
The absurdity is that while the United States is destroying its own power generation sector and economy due to Biden’s climate agenda and desire to reduce U.S. carbon dioxide emissions, China is building more coal-fired power plants, increasing its carbon dioxide emissions and improving its economy and standard of living for its residents.
Politicians, and particularly, the Defense Department, have the responsibility to equip our sons and daughters with reliable and useful equipment when they send them onto the battlefield, rather than using them as guinea pigs for the latest fad in vogue in Washington.
The torture that Julian Assange has endured is not just an attack on his rights of free expression and journalism; it is an assault on your right to be an informed citizen. The Biden administration looks to jail Assange for life because he exposed international crimes and corruption to the public for free.
Although it takes courage to challenge the majority view, advocates of capitalism need only two fundamentals in their arsenal: claiming the moral high ground and defining capitalism by essentials.
The conservatives are narrowing the gap but the leftists still have a sizeable lead in this race to the moral bottom.
We need to make a beginning toward the establishment of freedom of immigration for all rights-respecting individuals.
The “Black lives matter” principle is a valid concept, but the motto could be taken to imply that other lives do not matter because it is not inclusive.
Racism is a vile ideology. But the proper way to fight racism is through education and by ostracizing racists. We should not be fighting injustice with injustice.
Both right and left betrayed their ideals. The right abandoned its affections for limited government, free enterprise, and the rule of law. And the left turned against its traditional stand for civil liberties, equal freedoms, and free speech.
It is revealing that capitalists are condemned for being egoistic, but customers and employees are not, even though they all look to profit in their own way.
Adopting socialized medicine – “universal health care” – would not remedy the well-documented gap in U.S. life expectancy.
Let the advocates of capitalism proceed in the knowledge not only that socialism is dead, but also that what the world still needs to learn is why capitalism deserves to live.
The greatest soldiers of American history knew that freedom was sacred; no price paid on its behalf was a sacrifice.
Socialism is based on the doctrine of altruism, the morality of self-sacrifice.
What would be required to restore New York to its former prosperity and greatness would be the combination of the elimination of public welfare, the abolition of rent controls, and the privatization of the city’s transportation system.
If musicians and concertgoers are upset by the so-called “deceptive” practices of a “monopoly” like Ticketmaster and want the government to do something, they actually may want to redirect their attention towards another entity with monopoly power that also attempts to hide fees. That entity is … the government.
In the present-day world, a procapitalist foreign policy is indistinguishable from a pro-American foreign policy.
If only we had a thinker who could portray (again, in a best-selling book, later made available for free) what benevolence, respect, and happiness could be achieved when people come to live as free, moral equals, swearing by their life and love of it to “never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.”
Some doctors aren’t afraid to make the case for freedom, both in medical care and in all other aspects of our lives. One of them is Dr. Miguel Faria.
