Fake capitalismA little more conversation Queenie? A couple points you mentioned, the oncoming predicted bank crash... I question what will happen sooner, the dismantling of our booming economy by Socialists, or something predicted down the the way for some reason?
What do you think Queenie, I watch the news continually because the prophesies say we are going to experience perilous times. So you might see me running around lifting up the window shades taking a look outside to determine if I can see it coming, and yes I do. One prophesy I heard is "People will begin running from state to state when the U.S breaks like a pot." We are already broken in two, between the Ds and the Rs. There are TV news commentary hosts that are stating the possibility of a civil war.
I liken myself to a sensible person, I went out and bought a picture of Jesus, heh heh. Because I'm thinking that is where the safety is, staying close to the Lord. So when I'm walking by I will have comments, (but respectfully).
People are already running out of California by the thousands and that goes for Chicago, New Mexico and Arizona borders. My thoughts are start getting prepared, I've said food storage a dozen times. Remember there are lots of reasons, rolling blackouts -- good books - no TV; floods, we've already seen these things this last year. I think be prepared is a good saying. Put a nice blanket in the car maybe with a flashlight -- and snacks. Okay, I'm resisting paranoia now.
The broader point here is that leading “capitalists” are often nothing of the sort, particularly when they use political influence to carve out monopolies.
That’s neither capitalism nor socialism. It is something completely different: crony capitalism, corporatism, corporate statism—the terms vary. It promotes wealth concentration that leads to economic stagnation, political instability and the current discontent… which might bring real socialism.
So if you fear socialism, the best way to stop it is to clean up capitalism.
That means stop letting government policy favor large, influential companies. Let everyone compete on an equal footing, and give consumers and workers freedom to choose what they want.
