For some, free enterprise is the enemy.
A generation of those who received childhood participation medals, chafe at a merit-based reward system for their labors.
And older people, tired of being cheated by the greed of the others, begin to cast a longing eye toward socialism.
I’ve seen enough of life to know that most capitalism is better than most socialism, but at some point, either can become slavery.
After all, US slavery was a form of capitalism.
If we want to avoid socialism, we need to investigate American business practices that make socialism attractive.
Even as a conservative, I view business like I view immigrants; they should have to justify their existence in this country.
Let’s face it; humans are flawed and businesses and governments are extensions of those who create or manage them. Bernie Madoff
) Some immigrants come to America to integrate, assimilate, serve other people and prosper accordingly.
) Some Immigrants come to America to reap America’s wealth, then send it home.
) Yet others immigrants come only to invade, conquer and enslave America.
Businesses are like that, too.
From the consumer/citizen’s viewpoint, businesses exist for two reasons:
1) To deliver quality goods or services at a fair price.
2) To provide jobs locally.
This is not always happening, so in this section, I will focus on things that businesses do to make socialism appealing.
I hope business leaders will examine their business practices and calibrate their enterprises toward beneficent capitalism.
If your business is not here to do good for others, I wish you would change your focus.
A Congress full of Trumps can't keep America from socialism if business-greed beats the love for free enterprise out of ordinary Americans.
