This came across my feed the other day on Twitter.

So simple, so true.

If you’re someone who spends their waking hours hating wealthy people because “capitalism” and the free-market are evil, you should check your premises.

We’ve not had free-market capitalism in this country since the early 1900s. Capitalism is not failing, capitalism is being smothered to death by an ever growing form of soft socialism. The more you beg for a harder form of socialism, the worse it’s going to become. You think there’s a divide between the rich and the poor now, just wait till you further destroy the middle class in this country with idiotic ideas like the New Green Deal and Modern Monetary Theory.

You desperately need to begin to study what you think you know.

There is no free-market capitalism with central banks and government securitization of assets.

“And, in addition to all the miseries, the young are not wise. They have very little understanding about life. Who wants to live every day when you don’t know what’s going on? When people are manipulating you, telling you to buy this perfume and you’ll be beautiful, or this pair of jeans and you’ll be sexy–and you believe them! It’s such nonsense.”

-Morrie Schwartz, Tuesdays With Morrie

 

Sorry, got a little off track with the quotes the last week.

“There are dreamers, but not all human beings dream equally. Some are dreamers of the night, who in the dusty recesses of their mind dream and wake in the morning to find it was just vanity. But the Dreamers of the Day are dangerous people because they act their dreams into reality with open eyes.”

-T.E. Lawrence, Seven Pillars of Wisdom
