In spite of the bongo banging 99 percenters denouncing the evils of capitalism, something they have never actually seen in their lifetimes, billions are waking up to the empowerment of freedom and capitalism. Russians from the “old Soviet Union” are among the richest anywhere and almost everyone is pro-capitalism after living and surviving the horrors of communism. China is on a free market bent and its people are looking to purchase property in Canada and the United States and are on the capitalist bandwagon.
These phenomena are the results and vindication of the truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution that all people are “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Where these rights have been denied there has been despotism, tyranny, oppression, famine and death; it is a matter of historical record.
It seems the United States and Western Europe are the two places in the world where there is growing antipathy for capitalism. The good news is that their inhabitants represent only about 10 percent of the world’s population. This means freedom and capitalism will not die with the collapse of the American economic and political empire.
Historians will eventually confirm that the U.S. government with its unaccountable spending, redistribution of wealth, czars, bailouts, regulations and restrictions, not to mention the Federal Reserve, has become the world’s biggest enemy to freedom and capitalism. One can hope this will inspire a renaissance and a new age of freedom and prosperity.
