Free Market: The Most Moral, Efficient System There Is

This used to be fundamentally and almost universally understood in America, nearly instinctively. You didn’t even really need to teach it in schools or anywhere else. It was “Duh!” obvious.

Does the Sun Set in the West?

If we aren’t dead already, we certainly qualify for a suicide watch as we stick our head in a demographic noose, deny our own values and allow a minority of central planners to plan our own funeral and send our grandchildren the bill.

Dispelling Myths About the Free Market

Dispelling Myths About the Free Market

From Prager University and Arthur Brooks of the American Enterprise Institute, some good information to dispel five myths about capitalism and the free market.

How do you fundamentally transform a nation from what it has been to what a clique of ideologues wants it to be? The easiest way is to convince the general population that what the would-be masters want is what the people want. Those seeking to subvert a culture must take a long view.

Making the Moral Case for Capitalism

The American Right has yet to fully make the moral case for capitalism. Too many conservative writers and politicians focus on its practical aspects, but details of order and efficiency do not sway the hearts of voters, compassion does. Not surprisingly, the party most hostile to our founding economic principles has won the popular vote in five of the last six presidential elections, in large part, by claiming the moral high ground for wealth redistribution and more centralized power.
