What About Capitalism?

In recent months, there has been alot of talk about the evils of the Corporations.  Many people, myself included, believe that a few key industries, including the Financial, Energy, and Television Media industries, have been taken over by a select group of people for the purpose establishing a form of New World Order, a grand, global Super Government, with themselves at the head of it.  As a consequence, there are many who want to do away with Capitalism altogether.

Unfortunately, it is not so cut-and-dry.   While there are forces at work to bring about Armageddon and the End Times, and while–in all likelihood–these people will actually usher in the reign of the Antichrist, CAPITALISM IN GENERAL is not the enemy.  It’s only a TOOL for the enemy; and a tool that may be necessary for both sides.

We will crush the major corporations, it is true. Actually, we MUST. If we do not…they will destroy us; and the Human Race naturally adapts and reacts to literally ANYTHING that threatens its existence, from disease to dictators to natural disasters.

But…”capitalism” in general…and the Entrepreneurship that ultimately brings about new ideas and innovation can never be destroyed. Let me amend that…it MUST NOT BE DESTROYED! We actually need innovation; we actually need businesses that can produce the goods and services that our society depends on, literally for its survival!

Without “Capitalism” there can be no steel for automobiles, railroads, ships, or large buildings. Indeed without a capitalist infrastructure, we would have NONE of the major conveniences and entertainments that we ALL rely on. Socialism can’t do that, as the Russians so painfully discovered. NOBODY in any significant numbers would be willing to work their hearts out for the “Greater Good” if they can’t start a business and make some kind of profit. Whether it’s money, gold, diamonds, a Jacuzzi, or a Filet Mignon a coupla times a month, people want something they don’t have. They’re willing to work a little harder for that.

Capitalism makes that reward system possible. Without it, people are just plain lazy, and the collapse of the Soviet Union shows s all the consequences of that fact. Ultimately, like everything else we have, GREED is Good..IN PROPER MODERATION. And that’s why, after we take down the major Banking and Energy consortiums that are trying to enslave us, we WILL and MUST establish Capitalist Enterprises that can never again threaten the lives or livelihoods of the People of this Earth.

A Legend In His Own Time

Three days ago, the world lost a great man. Nelson Mandela, a legend in his own time, probably did more to engender Equal Rights for blacks than nearly any other man in history; INCLUDING Abraham Lincoln!

Now, I need to preface that; you see, the last time I made a statement like that, I drew alot of angry criticism. Our Prsident Lincoln did what he did to ensure the FREEDOM of black people in America. Not equality…oh, sure, he gave them the right to vote and all that; but then it took more than another HUNDRED YEARS before America rid itself of our own version of Aparteid! True, without Lincoln, there may never have been a Nelson Mandela…or if Lincoln hadn’t set the stage by freeing the slaves, South Africa might simply have executed Mandela, as an unruly (and unsellable) slave. But, what Lincoln did, was only part of the process.

What Mandella did, he did in a single generation. He, like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., believed in a world in which color was NOT a determiner of quality. Today, if you tell a soccer player in Africa that you don’t like him because he’s black, it is his WHITE teammates who’ll rip your head off, even before the offended player can tell you he forgives you. In Johannesburg, you’ll find poor white people and rich black people, both–side by side with their counterparts. In short, South Africa is a model that the entire world looks up to.

In Europe today, there are black people, white people, Asian people, and others in every sort of industry, and at every level of government. Why is it that, parts of THIS country still struggle with the same? In the American South, bigotry and hatred still drives entire orders of people. Neighborhoods like Harlem in New York, the French Quarter in New Orleans, Chinatown in San Francisco, and even the many Indian Reservations of the Native American peoples show our differences and divide “Us” from “Them”. Yes…we have an African-American president. Finally. But it happened SIXTEEN YEARS after Nelson Mandela became the first black president of a Democratic Nation ON EARTH!

Abram Lincoln did NOT do that. He may have made it possible…but Nelson Mandela made it happen. Even Martin Luther King didn’t do that; instead, King became a Martyr, and the violence between the races continued on, in some areas, even to the present day. And maybe even in South Africa, the work isn’t finished. But I have not heard of a South African KKK, or an Aryan Nations. Not recently anyways. Not since Nelson Mandela united a people. There was a man who changed, not only his own country, but much of the world, as well. Even we, in America owe him a debt.

Don’t tell me this person, or that President, or some king, or whatever did much for Equality. Nelson Mandela did more for equality among the races of humans than anyone I’m aware of, and he did it world wide. Our history in this country shows a people who have fought the idea of equality tooth-and-nail! We owe alot to to this man, and I think we should honor him as much as we honor our own heros and legends, for a legend he was. Farewell, “Tata.” May you walk among the green fields with your brothers and sisters forever and ever. And one day, may we finally take the lessons you taught us to heart.

SASS has Spoken.

Good day.
