The climate of Capitalism by Robert Hunziker...
Capitalism, as a socio-economic system, has lifted the standard of living for untold millions of people all across the globe. It is the nuts and bolts of successful enterprise, bringing in its wake a middle class that enjoys a way of life that prior generations of parents and grandparents never realized, an automated lifestyle filled with gadgets and devices that bring comfort to everyday life like washing machines, automobiles, televisions, cell phones, refrigerators, and life-saving medical developments. And, just to think, who in 1912 would have predicted a person could walk out of their house in New York City in the morning and arrive in San Francisco for a business meeting that same day? There were no airports in 1912. All the same, capitalism, over time, has grown warts. This is because of an overzealous adherence to its very tenets, which are (1) private property (2) self interest (3) competition (4) market-based (5) economic freedom (6) consumer sovereignty and (7) laissez faire. And, as Adam Smith preached in The Wealth of Nations (1776), the invisible hand of the free market guides people to act in the public interest by following their own self-interest.
Hypocrites with Fat Wallets...
CEOs Want It All America’s top corporate executives love lecturing the rest of us about ‘fiscal responsibility.’ They want us to expect less from government. But they expect more, and a new report shows how they’re getting it. By Sam Pizzigati
60 Minutes and the Billionaire Agenda...
The old journalistic maximum said a good journalist had to answer five questions in every story: Who, what, when, where, and why? Of those, “why” is the most important questions of all. Without it, stories are more likely to misinform than inform. In this case, the misinformation seems deliberate. The intended message seems to be government can’t help us. We must militarize or cities and depend on the generosity of billionaires, or we don’t stand a chance. Three stories were aired Sunday night: Counterinsurgency Cops, Robin Hood, and Invisible Wounds.
