It’s 2021…Why Are You Not a Capitalist?


Mark my words…capitalism will save your life. So why are there so many people out there who are against it? To simply put it, you have been misled, misinformed and brainwashed. While there are a lot of idiots out there that try to push a negative connotation onto capitalism, I am here to tell you that they are wrong. It has been proven time and time again that capitalism does much more good for the world than it does bad. Anyone that says otherwise is a victim of misinformation. It’s time to educate the people of the facts and highlight just how capitalism drives the creation of wealth, freedom and prosperity for all.

For most of the 20th century, a lot of the world was ruled Marxist socialist ideology and even though Marxism has been denounced across the world since it’s economic collapse, its influence has penetrated much more deeply into western thinking than most of us realize. Unfortunately, most Americans still hold many socialist theories as truths applicable to modern economics. This is a deadly mistake.

Let’s take a look at the socialist economic philosophy…

For starters, it is based on the false premise that resources are limited and that wealth comes from the accumulation of resources. Therefore, the chief concern of socialist economics is distribution of limited resources among consumers. Accumulating wealth is said to deplete resources and damages the planet. And as expanding populations continue to stretch our limited resources thinner, it will lead to more shortages and more poverty in the long run. Also, since resources are considered to be limited under the socialist philosophy, the accumulation of wealth has to occur at the expense of someone else. In other words, one person cannot become richer without making others poorer. Making a profit is considered to be theft and those who become insanely wealthy deprive others. Thus making it a key cause of poverty.

This couldn’t be any further from reality. If you honestly believe that this is the way the world works today, you are completely delusional.

Congratulations on being an idiot!

All of these ideas are myths, logically baseless, and constantly proven false by human experience. This is exactly why the idea of Marxism died in the first place. There’s nothing valid about this way of thinking. These same principles have been tried and failed miserably. Renaming the philosophy won’t magically make it work. So why are there still so many socialist idiots who believe this hooplah? Because people are afraid to think for themselves and are willing to blindly follow whatever the government says. Newsflash, pushing this socialist agenda is nothing more than an attempt to mindlessly control you and unless you stop accepting the poison they’re feeding you and begin to think for yourself, you will be screwed. No matter how us American identify ourselves —freedom-lovers, libertarians, individualists, or capitalists—it is our government’s foundational beliefs that ultimately guide our public policy.

Here are the real facts…

Nothing is a resource until someone thinks of a way to use it to solve a human problem. Therefore, resources are not limited because they are created by human invention. Literally anything in our universe can become a resource as long as we find a way to make use of it. Barely a century ago, electric lights, mechanization, anesthesia, air travel, antibiotics, computers, instant communications and a thousand other modern inventions were mere fantasies, Fast forward to today and these are all commonly used things that we take for granted now. The fact is, there are infinite resources in this world and the immense wealth was not just dug up out of the ground; it came from the human mind.

Secondly, wealth is not solely about money. Real wealth is about the empowerment of others. Wealth and generating profit is not created at the expense of others as theorized by socialists, but is actually created for the benefit of all mankind even when individuals act creatively in their own self-interest. Profit is only a miniscule part of the wealth creation; the other much greater part is passed to consumers in the form of better products, a new standard of living and allowing all of humanity to share in the wealth created. Also, as the population has expanded, we have vastly more resources at our disposal today, not fewer. We’re not using resources up; in fact, we’re creating them faster than ever before. That’s why historically we see that increasing population in free markets leads to greater wealth. The expanding population has not made mankind poorer as predicted by socialists, but exactly the opposite.

People have to get over this fear of wealth; there is always more wealth out there to generate. Stop pushing this bullshit socialist narrative that one person’s wealth means everyone else will stay poor. The fear of wealth disparity comes from the mistaken belief resources are being hoarded and must be forcibly redistributed to enrich the poor. However, in a capitalist economy, the rich are the ones who are enriching the poor through inventive wealth creation and should be encouraged to do more of the same. Forced redistribution is not only counterproductive, but unnecessary. Those who push this socialist agenda through public policies only deter the people who are creating better lives for the great good.

Those of you who still believe in the baseless socialist theories are brainwashed. Capitalism is what is needed to create prosperity and freedom for all. It’s obvious that historically there has been success in capitalism and failure in socialism. Why? Because socialism dwells only on the distribution of wealth, while capitalism promotes its creation. It is sad that capitalist economic philosophy is often misunderstood because capitalism is the only system that truly benefits us all and gives the opportunity for you to control your own destiny.

It’s unfortunate that so many Americans are Marxist-influenced without even realizing it even though it is clearly American-led capitalism that has created the world’s wealth. It’s time to stop allowing these socialist fools to brainwash you and deal with the reality of things. Capitalism is the only economic philosophy that recognizes and promotes wealth creation in its purest state, the empowerment and betterment of the people. Capitalism will succeed in improving the human condition and support an expanding population. It protects and values profit as a human triumph for all of mankind versus pushing the false narrative of thievery. Capitalism emphasizes your right to achieve goals and to create a better life for yourself and those around you. Creating your own wealth does not take away from others. It gives you the means to spread wealth by empowering others to do the same. Capitalism is the only way we as a people will prevail. Wake up and take back control of your life; the future of the world is in your hands.
