Spread the love

(Sept. 7, 2010) — To oppose socialism and the ongoing destruction of our Republic with libertarianism is like trying to stop a charging rhino by throwing a shoe at it.

A recent article by Olavo de Carvalho shows why, and surprisingly, the author shows that his hypothesis of economics being reliant on traditional culture, is anything but new. He cites books going back over 100 years that support this view and that in fact, clairvoyantly foresaw the downfall of capitalism precisely for the reasons that it is now collapsing.

The viewpoint that the solution to our economic failures can be found in economics itself is fatally flawed from the outset.

Capitalism without the bedrock of traditional ethics, morality, patriotism, love of God and traditional family, tough love, brotherly love, honesty, honor, and the drive to compete, excel and better oneself that existed in the first century of our new Republic, and specifically without the work ethic promoted in the scriptures, cannot work any more than communism can. It quickly degenerates into fascism, a toxic mix of Statism and capitalism wherein corrupt politicians easily overpower the market.

The bailouts of the banks and bankers — a prime example of fascism — were opposed by over 90% of Americans but were quickly rammed through both houses. Healthcare “reform,” another example of a fascistic Public-Private Partnership (PPP), forces citizens (again, against the will of Americans) to buy health insurance at the outlandish inflated prices charged by companies. What a boon to the health insurance racket and its partner the medical business.  The un-Constitutional government takeover of a major part of the US auto industry is another example. The democratic process – not to mention the free market — has completely failed.

But it had failed long before that because the culture that formed its spiritual and moral infrastructure had been gradually decimated.

De Carvalho’s examples of self-destructive capitalism, including the selling of anticapitalist and anti-American culture to young people, reminded me of the vendors here in Panama selling shirts, carrying bags, hats and other paraphernalia bearing likenesses of Che Guevara — capitalism selling the antithesis of itself.

When I meet vendors on the street or in the mall selling these, I go up to them, smiling, and say “do you admire all mass murderers or just Che?”

One vendor offered the excuse that people have different opinions. I went up to a cap he was selling, pointed to the picture of Che on the front of it and asked “do you realize that if this man had met you during his heyday in Cuba and had found out you were Panamanian, he probably would have shot you dead in cold blood?”

The only vendor at the nearby mall who sold these items has since pulled them off the shelf. A local book seller has put his Che biographies in a less-conspicuous place since hearing my stern lecture.

You see, I have done something most others apparently have not yet done, and it is high time they did.

I got mad. Really really mad. It is time you did likewise, Dear Reader.

You see, they are immersing your sons and daughters in smut, unimaginable filth, in the entertainment field but probably even in your children’s school. “Christian” churches are awash with moral relatavism, with pastors claiming that salvation can come through all religions, leading to the inevitable conclusion that Christ is superfluous. Politicians are stealing you blind, and to rub salt in your wounds, have made you pay for the invasion from Mexico, other people’s abortions, other people’s drugs and booze, cohabitation, out-of-wedlock relationships and the children sired in them, sex change operations and much more. Since WW II, they have sent you and your children to die in foreign wars ordered by the agents of the New World Order, wars that we lost because that was the game plan. Then, once they saw how easy it was to fool you, they decided just to steal your money outright and give it to the banker buds who got them elected.

If you aren’t mad yet, you lack the anger gene. But if you are, I advise you to use your anger wisely, following Christ’s prescription: Be gentle as doves and wise as serpents.

If all you can do is froth at the mouth, don’t bother. But if you can love your enemies while refusing to back down even an inch, you can help win back the West.

  1. Amen! The truth is as proclaimed. Hard to find fault with these observations.
    As you see below I promote the facts from Post&Email to almost every site I blog. Why? It is essential to expose the blinding truth amongst so few sites that are dim in their stand for righteousness.

    From a recent blog on a major site- The non-reality for barry soetero is his mirror. The complexity of his own image is so distorted with self grandiose he can’t fathom a nation despising his inept ability to lead a nation to wholeness. The liar-in-chief actually lies to himself from a disorder of self importance he cannot see past the mole on his cheek. Spend more of fiat false FED created money and all will be well from his perspective. Now the stuff is really going to hit when the 540 certified letters of his Kenyan birth record (see here- http://www.thepostemail.com/2010/09/05/exclusive-… ) are opened today and CONgress has a decision. Do we investigate these mounting facts?or, do we become complicit with possible misprison of felony charges since the fraudster has been occupying the White House illegally for nearly 20 months?

    Remember, this is about Pelosi and her signing the DNC affirmation of barry soetero meeting the Constitutional eligibility requirements on 49 of the 50 filed election democrat committee forms. She and all those knowledgeable to this fraud over the people, will be arrested. She will not have Botox available in prison.

  2. Hereinfollowing is a message from The Good Book, Our Manual on which OUR COUNTRY was founded, “The Holy Bible”. I clearly see most members of our current White House, Congress, and Senate being accurately described therein, however I will leave it to the Reader to put names to these individuals…

    2 Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. :2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, :3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, :4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; :5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. :6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, :7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

    AMEN Good people; surly we must believe that there should be a price to be paid for such evil ???????
