Trashing Capitalism

Some believe the problems plaguing our society are endemic to capitalism and won’t be fixed so long as we stick to this system. They think socialism doesn’t have these problems, offers a level playing field and guarantees social justice. Those agreeing think there’s rampant discrimination against race-gender-ethnicity subsets in our society, narrowing their opportunities, paying less for the same jobs and treating them...

Amerikka

My fellow Americans, (r)epublicans & free market capitalists: The lefties are coming! The lefties are coming! Would that you heed the call as did other patriots not so long ago when the cry was – The British are coming! The British are coming! Why the panic? In a word, millennials. Youth under 30.

Trouble is, party leaders are leftist liberals who work to achieve unrealistic goals. By leftist I mean-socialist oriented, trying to create a hybridized American socialism. Simply stated, they believe actual socialisms of the past and present...

Setting The Tone?

In high schools & colleges across the land liberalism bordering on anti-capitalism is presented in classrooms and lecture halls as the only humanitarian answer to problems in society such as racism, sexism, homophobia and what some perceive as our have/have-not distribution of wealth. When students reject this idea they are ostracized by both teachers and peers as racists, homophobes and so on. As an example, not long ago...
