Libertarianism: A Political Oxymoron

Today, it is those who actively participate in the Progressive ideology that call out this complex dichotomy for what it really is: Capitalism presented to the public through different self-pronounced brands.

OUR Decision Not Yours

The second is that which originates from the top, those who are more financially stable and/or well-off. As has always been the case throughout civilization, this is where the political system is represented.

The Hydrodollar System

Part of the answer is obvious. They will coexist, no matter what. But the relationship between the two has always had their respective functions at odds with each other, due to the concept of Money and Finance as being dependent on limitation of reproduction. Even to this day, the concept dictates that the more of a currency is produced, the less value it has.

If there is any doubt about my message, here it is: To mobilize people behind any cause, regardless of how worthy that cause is, regardless of how intrinsically appealing it may be to get these folks marching, singing, chanting, shouting for that cause, if there is no clear strategy which targets an equally clear and obvious outcome, with a realistic expectation that the strategy will achieve that outcome, then the mobilization is a waste of time.

A Nation of Relentless Savagery

America can say with great pride that what it does, it usually does very well. When we put our minds to something, we pull out all the stops. Now we can put cold-blooded killing right up there in the Top 10. We kill efficiently. We kill without remorse. We kill without hesitation.
