Line up everybody, we're choosing sides for a game. Team one is called The Elite Socialists and team two is called The Greedy Fascists. No feelings will be hurt, because we won't have a winner...
"Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of State and corporate power."
Benito Mussolini, Fascist dictator of Italy
As a republican who's always been for capitalism, I've been scratching my head trying to figure out what happened to true capitalism and real free market the past 8 years.
Capitalism somehow did change and seeing it as elite s...ocialism is a really cool way of looking at it. It's true. It all seems like an illusion where money seemed to always get shifted to the wealthy under the pretense of capitalism. How many free market conservatives should have let the bush/paulson bailout plan pass? there were only a handful of real conservatives who stood up to it.
First we will start with what capitalists think socialism is. They feel that man must sacrifice his own notions for the sake of the greater good in their economy. They feel that they must also sacrifice their individual mind..., which denies them the sole means of survival for man and his nature as a rational being. Capitalists do not regard this system as an ideal. A capitalist’ ideal accommodates one standard of life, man’s life. The measure of a socialist system consists of the appraisal of, the relationships between men, and institutions that govern the forms of association. In defense to this, socialists say that the workers in a capitalist economy struggle against corporate greed. Working people should work together socially to produce all things together. Capitalists are different and take the wealth that they create to build more capital for himself. They feel as if there is a contradiction between social production and individual capitalist ownership. One capitalist deprives another capitalist of property and more wealth is concentrated towards a smaller and smaller number of people. In order to compete in this type of market things must be cut; jobs, wages, and benefits.
Is this fair to the hard working, family supporting, American work force?
