  • Anarcho Capitalism: A Definition and Guide on Why It Matters

    Anarcho Capitalism refers to the philosophy that calls for the abolition of centralized states. In its stead, the state will be replaced by a system of private property which will be maintained by private institutions and civil society. Anarcho-capitalism is truly radical in the sense that it strikes at the root of societal problems and attempts to offer solutions to these problems through market forces. Given the philosophy’s relatively young age, anarcho-capitalist thought merits a proper analysis in order for novices to fully comprehend it.

    UPI ^ | April 27, 2022 | By Doug Cunningham
    April 27 (UPI) -- A health-related report that examines numerous issues for American families, such as wages and rising costs, said on Wednesday that economic security is out of reach for many people in the United States -- particularly women and women of color who are still at a fiscal disadvantage compared to men. The assessment, the 2022 County Health Rankings & Roadmaps report, looks at a number of key issues facing working Americans and found that most need a pay increase of more than 70% before they can earn a living wage. At worst, in some counties across the...

    I produced this video in the late 90's with Chinese dissident Harry Wu. It pretty much proves and documents the horrific practice of the killing of prisoners and the harvesting and sale of their body parts by China. Pretty sure it's going to be censored...

The program will allow Harvard researchers to “better understand and address the causes and consequences of wealth inequalities in different populations around the world,” the Kennedy School stated in a news release.

    NewsBusters ^ | 2/22/2022 | Joseph Vazquez
    The New York Times appears to be drunk on its hatred of American capitalism. The liberal rag stooped to burying its Marxist swipes at freemarkets in its — *checks notes* — crossword puzzle. The 49th clue in the newspaper’s Feb. 22 puzzle read, “Vice encouraged by capitalism.” The pathetic answer: “Greed.” How clever. Did The Times consider the fact that it once courted hundreds of millions in bailout money from Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim Helu when its news operation was on the verge of financial ruin? AQR Capital Management Managing Principal and Chief Investment Officer Cliff Asness slapped The Times...
  • The World Economic Forum’s Woke War on Business

    It took some time for the authoritarian ideas of the World Economic Forum (WEF) to become excoriated in the mainstream press. But one of the most nefarious elements of Stakeholder Capitalism are Universal Environmental, Social, and Government (ESG) Scores. But what are ESG scores, and could they be a gateway to a social credit system? Stakeholder Capitalism is WEF founder Klaus Schwab’s model for imposing his ethical prescriptions onto free-market exchange. Businesses will no longer be beholden to “the prevailing shareholder-primacy model of profit maximization”, but instead to “more socially conscious” stakeholders: experts in fields like environmental sustainability, racial and...
  • Let's Be Honest: The system is set up for hospitals to profit from COVID

    American Thinker ^ | 01/20/2022 | Terry Paulding
    If you had a financial incentive to do something that wasn't exactly honest, would you abandon your principles and take the cash? Apparently, that's what many medical providers and hospitals in America have been doing, especially since the beginning of the Biden administration. The numbers are staggering — both in money hospitals took in and the very real possibility that their actions caused people to die. If the accusations are true, what happened is truly evil and, I think, points directly to a cause: the removal of God and morality from society, replacing these brakes with what passes for modern...
  • Capitalism And Common Sense Will End Vaccine Mandates In 2022

    I’ve already predicted that 2022 is going to exemplify how powerful of a force both capitalism and common sense can be.I started out the year by predicting that these two forces would catalyze a massive pivot in how the mainstream media reports on Covid.Only days later, we are already starting to see shades of the pivot that I spoke about. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky appears to have turned her focus to people with comorbidities and “reporters” like Jake Tapper are finally admitting that not everybody hospitalized with Covid has been hospitalized for Covid. As we look forward to what pivots...

    The Clarksvillian ^ | 12/20/2021 | David Andrews
    It’s not a very cleverly hidden agenda when the Democrat Party fights against Cubans fleeing communism for entry into the US for safe harbor and a future. Simultaneously, that same Democrat Party supports illegal immigration from countries throughout North and South America as they safely cross the open southern US border. This recurring specter of communism strategically hides, so even those that practice it won’t call it by name. Saul Alinsky’s playbook, “Rules for Radicals,” teaches subversiveness by redefining words and vocabulary meanings.

    Actor Jay Johnston has reportedly been fired from the cast of Bob's Burgers after it was revealed that he participated in the riot at the U.S. Capitol building on Jan. 6, 2021. Johnston has been the voice of Jimmy Pesto on Bob's Burgers for about a decade now, and is also known for roles on productions like Mr. Show, Arrested Development and Anchorman, among others. On Friday, The Daily Beast reported that Johnston had been "banned" from working on Bob's Burgers. Two sources familiar with the situation at the Fox animated sitcom said that Johnston will not be allowed to...

Employees had until Dec. 3 to state their vaccination status to the company and upload the required documentation or to apply for a medical or religious exemption, according to the memo, CNBC reported. ..."

    CommentaryEnvision a country in which “the state runs capitalism to serve the interests of most people” and our politicians won’t let “rich capitalists stand in the way of doing what they believe is best for the most people of the country.”That sounds a lot like Bernie Sanders or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez describing their far-left ideal for America. It’s not that far removed from the Marxist maxim that predates Karl Marx himself of “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs,” and it goes completely against the free-market principles that drive successful investors and entrepreneurs in the Land...
  • BEWARE: Biden's 'Build Back Better' Socialism Bill IS the 'Great Reset'

    The mission of “Build Back Better” is to grow government and to dismantle “capitalism” – and is directly related to the “Great Reset.” With the help of corrupt republicans, the radical left has managed to pass horrific spending legislation under the guise of “infrastructure.” But despite the major win for socialism and inflation, progressives are doubling down to pass the so called “Build Back Better” (BBB) bill. On Tuesday, Joe Biden assured his globalist masters that the Build Back Better bill will be passed “within a week”. “I am confident that the House is going to pass this bill,” he...

    I began to really look around to try and figure out who was all actually there that day. There were no Black folks — at all. There were some, but they were so rare that I could spend 5 or 10 minutes people-watching, actively looking, and maybe find one Black person. In fact, it wasn’t until late in the day that I saw a whole family. Clearly, something had happened: We were all needed elsewhere for the culture, and I had missed the memo. This attendance disparity was also new to me. I could swear Black folks liked Disneyland as...

    Back in the 1980s, I was a Columbia University student learning about a plan to destroy America and end capitalism. It was called Cloward-Piven -- named after a Columbia University husband-and-wife professor team. Their insane goal was to turn America into a socialist, communist hellhole. They planned to do it by overwhelming and collapsing the U.S. economy with massive debt, created by getting as many Americans as possible to depend on welfare, food stamps and unemployment benefits. In the ensuing economic catastrophe and collapse of our country, every business owner would get on their knees to beg government to save...

    The US economy is based on a free enterprise system where the markets, not the government, determine prices. For this system to function properly, there must be competition. "The fundamental purpose of our antitrust laws is to preserve competition and prevent markets from being monopolized," says George A. Hay, Charles Frank Reavis Sr. Professor of Law and professor of economics at the Cornell Law School. "If we had widespread monopoly our economy would be much worse off." The first of those antitrust laws is the Sherman Antitrust Act, enacted in 1890. ... There are three main parts of the Sherman...

    There's so much negative news these days. I was glad to see that a new podcast, "American Optimist," features good things that are coming. It's hosted by Palantir founder and venture capitalist Joe Lonsdale. He interviews entrepreneurs like Sal Churi, who funds companies like Icon, which found a way to 3D print homes in just one day. The process is cool to watch. You can see it in my new video. Fast home-building is such a good thing for poor people who want an affordable house! Unfortunately, Churi has to struggle to get past the government's rigid zoning and safety...

    The average transaction price for a new vehicle in America hit a record of $45,031 in September. It's the sixth consecutive month of record vehicle prices, according to Kelley Blue Book. That price represents a 12.1% increase (or $4,872 in cold, hard cash) over the same month a year ago and a 3.7% increase over the prior month.(The federal government, meanwhile, calculates new-car prices are up 8.7% year over year.)The reasons for the rapidly increasing prices of new vehicles are well documented, with inventory shortages caused by a lack of microchip availability cited as the latest problem. Last month, however,...

    "Capitalism will continue to eliminate mass poverty in more and more places and to an increasingly marked extent if it is merely permitted to do so." – Henry Hazlitt "The superior freedom of the capitalist system, its superior justice, and its superior productivity are not three superiorities, but one. The justice follows from the freedom and the productivity follows from the freedom and the justice." – Henry Hazlitt "Since the State necessarily lives by the compulsory confiscation of private capital, and since its expansion necessarily involves ever-greater incursions on private individuals and private enterprise, we must assert that the state...
