I am starting a new feature on Another Black Conservative, Guest Blogger Sunday. Every Sunday, I will turn over one post to another blogger on my blog roll to give you all a little sampling of who I read (and to give this brother a rest, lol). I actually cooked up the idea with this week’s guest…Track A ‘Crat. Enjoy
Moore Is Less - by Track A 'Crat
Were I not afraid that he would try to incapacitate and then eat me, I’d love to follow Michael Moore around every day and do nothing but tell him how stupid he is, how stupid his face is, how stupid his house is, etc.
And, most especially of all, how earth-shatteringly stupid his forthcoming train-wreck Capitalism: A Love Story inevitably is.
Moore’s latest anti-logic masterpiece on behalf of the Democratic Party concludes with the observation that,
“Capitalism is an evil, and you cannot regulate evil. You have to eliminate it and replace it with something that is good for all people and that something is democracy.”
The only mildly shocking thing about which is that it wasn’t a hidden genius of the likes of Monica Conyers who mouth-farted it into existence.
First of all, left-wing idiots, democracy and capitalism are not mutually exclusive. One relates to politics, the other to the economy, see? Wanting to replace capitalism with democracy is like wanting to replace electricity with soda. They. Are. Not. The. Same. Thing.
Although I could excuse them for thinking otherwise, seeing as how true democracies have coincided with no other economic
model but the free market. Name me one proper democracy that doesn’t depend on a free market for its economic activity, I dare you.
Second, nothing in the history of the world has done more to alleviate poverty and spread prosperity than the free market. Remember what came before to help the LDCs? Loans, aid, debt-forgiveness, charity and philanthropy, religion, etc? None even approach the amount of good done by the free market.
I’m keeping the critiques to two because this would otherwise never end, but here’s a last point to consider: socialists conflate the political and economic spheres because, like fundamentalist Islam, it is a totalitarian doctrine. Everything comes under the purview of socialism.
Not so with conservatives, who, while noting the innumerable links between democracy and the free market, nevertheless devolve one set of functions to one and another set of functions to the other. Coveting the control of all Creation as they do, this division of labor is unacceptable to the Democratic Socialist Party.
So when idiots like Moore say that they want “economic democracy”, what they mean to say is material uniformity. That way, no matter what your intelligence, work ethic or need, we all get to have the same (crappy) house, car, food and possessions as everyone else.
Everyone, that is, except for those ruling over us.
