This is part 2, following the last short post about Capitalism not being motivated by selfishness. Let's look at the capital formation process, via a business startup, from the perspective of a capitalist/entrepreneur, henceforth abbreviated as C/E. Our scenario assumes a single C/E, but quite often things commence with a relatively small group of founders, capturing their ideas to solve a problem, on the back of a napkin. The C/E's motive is generally a combination of at l
Capitalism is not motivated or driven by selfishness. It should also not be defended on the concept of "rational self interest" as attempted by some. The word "selfish" has a clear meaning, which is: "action, or motive, lacking consideration for others; CONCERNED CHIEFLY WITH ONE'S OWN (my emphasis) personal profit or pleasure." This meaning is accepted by the vast majority of the earth's billions of inhabitants. Trying to change this definition is not only futile, but it is
This is an updated version of a post from 2019 A free society driven by Capitalism, and which creates billionaires, is a moral society. In fact, the presence of billionaires in a Capitalist society is a direct measure of that society’s morality, by virtue of the global "goodness" it creates. A command society driven by Socialism also creates billionaires. The presence of billionaires in a Socialist society is a direct measure of that society’s immorality, by virtue of the tyr
Capitalism needs a moral foundation in order to accelerate its unprecedented benevolence towards humanity. It needs a moral foundation to quash the tyranny of Socialism. Humans WANT to be good. The desire to behave morally is instinctive, but the ability must be acquired and willfully exercised. In other words, nature compels us to have good intentions, but leaves it to us to discover a moral code, and to follow it. Despite its incomparable record of achievement towards glob
A voting system, in any kind of political election, must be PROVEN to have integrity BEFORE it is used. It must not fail in its primary purpose, no matter what the circumstances. A voting system can be classified as a "mission critical system," which, if one borrows from Wikipedia, is defined as follows: "A mission critical system is a system that is essential to the survival of a business or organization. When a mission critical system fails or is interrupted, business oper
The Left hates America and everything it stands for. While there are some patriotic Democrats, the party has moved undeniably and aggressively towards the Left. Those Democrats who claim to love America will either have to leave the party, or live a denial.
This election proved a few things. One is that Leftists have nothing to offer America from an idea standpoint, that would improve the lives of its citizens. They have reverted to a full on Marxist ideology (check out Bi
"Voting" is a mission critical system for a country. By definition, security and integrity of mission critical systems have to be proven BEFORE they are used by citizens. Of course nothing is 100% foolproof, however for many familiar societal Institutions, we do our VERY best to "verify BEFORE trust" instead of vice versa. A few familiar mission critical systems are banking, flying, pharmaceutical drug development, surgery, home buying and baby sitting. Voting can arguably b
Candidate Biden, along with Senator Bernie Sanders, AOC, and a host of other Marxist oriented Democrat politicians, have united around the recent "Unity Task Force" manifesto. If one has the time to read, or skim it at this link, it won't take long to conclude that if Democrats win in November, the next stop on America's political journey is all out Socialism. Republicans need an official response, in support of Capitalism, around which to rally. That response is the #ROCKME
#ROCKME is a direct response to the Marxist movement that is taking hold in the U.S. today. Its primary goals are to: Take back the MORAL high ground in political discourse Create awareness of tremendous benefits bestowed upon humanity from Capitalism Relieve society's hard working achievers from the plague of unearned guilt Rescue our youth from their Marxist teachers and media idols. In bullet form: #ROCKME stands for "Rewards of Capitalism: Knowledge, MORALITY, Empowerment
Today is the sixth annual Harvest the Earth Day .
Harvest the Earth Day is a celebration in honor of humans worldwide. Now, more than ever, in the middle of a pandemic, humans need to do what they do best, and that is produce. Humans must produce the facilities, equipment, treatments, and accessories needed to fight the COVID-19 virus. They mustn't engage in economic lockdown, or surrender basic Constitutional rights, from fear propounded by death predictions from highly in
In a recent Facebook post, I pointed out that if Johns Hopkins researchers were correct, the death rate from corona virus in the U.S. is either a lot LESS than the death rate for the seasonal flu, or equal to it. While we wait to learn if the above is true, I'd like to address the graphic with two curves going around the web. One curve says hospitals will be overwhelmed if we don't implement wide scale "social distancing" remedies. The other shows how such social distancing
Recently. Senator Chuck Schumer made outrageous comments, some would say threats, towards Supreme Court Justices Kavanaugh and Gorsuch. Today, he made a pathetic attempt to walk back those comments, by saying, "I’m from Brooklyn. We speak in strong language." Well, Senator, you may be from Brooklyn, but your behavior is not, and what you said is FAR from "strong." To threatened as you did, especially from your position of power, is pure bullying. You'd have a difficult time f
