One Can Never Have Too Much Freedom When Building Fruitful Societies

from The Daily Bell:

Being an Ideologue Means Never Having to Say You’re Wrong … “Communism would have worked, if the Soviet Union had only tried it for real.” … For any political-economic ideology, there is always a hard core of believers who will never waver in their conviction that if only the program were tried in its pure form, it would succeed. Any failures — even debacles on a grand scale, including the fiasco of 20th century communism — will be chalked up to ideological impurity and improper application.- Bloomberg

Bloomberg’s Noah Smith, the site’s most provocative and often wrongheaded columnist compares communism to free-markets in this editorial. His conclusion: “Hard core believers” of any type are probably wrong.

We don’t think so.

Communism in its modern form is a pervasively authoritarian ideology. Its corollary is state control. Free-market economics is exactly the opposite. It is most effective when the state is at least dormant.

Can societies ever be too free? That’s hard to fathom. Certainly – and sadly – that doesn’t seem to be a problem in the world today. Nonetheless, Noah pursues his points.

In reality, true believers often cling tenaciously to their worldviews … [But] the tendency toward ideological commitment is now being tested in the U.S., as free-market dogma — sometimes known as neo-liberalism — is coming under increasing attack.

Bernie Sanders’s presidential campaign gained a surprising amount of support from young people. Economists, both in the public eye and out of it, are focusing more on inequality and embracing a more activist role for the state.

    It’s all about cultural values. FREEDOM comes with RESPONSIBILITY, self-reliance, toward self-sufficiency. Do no harm to others. Do not steal. Hold yourself, and your “elected” officials to the highest MORAL standards. EDUCATE YOURSELF. How can anyone know why this country is in the (Luciferian) mess that it is currently in, if they’ve never studied HISTORY? If you don’t know where we’ve been, how can you ever know how we arrived where we are? It’s NOT enough to be able to READ. You have to know WHAT to read. You can only know WHAT to read, if you’ve learned HOW TO THINK, PROPERLY. Well, how do you do that? Use the TRIVIUM (Grammar, Logic, Rhetoric). Once you’ve learned the TRIVIUM method, apply it to the study of History. What does America need beyond FREEDOM (with RESPONSIBILITY)?

    KNOWLEDGE (PUT INTO ACTION!), MORALITY, RULE OF LAW, EQUALITY UNDER THE RULE OF LAW (NO FREE PASS FOR “TOO-BIG-TO-FAIL” BANKS & BANKERS, AND NO FREE PASS FOR “TOO-BIG-TO-JAIL” BANKERS AND THEIR LACKEY POLITICIANS, LIKE KILLARY HINTON), SCIENCE, INDUSTRY, COURAGE, CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE OR NON-VIOLENT NON-COMPLIANCE, HARD-WORK, FINDING ALTERNATIVES TO EVERYTHING THEY’VE SET UP TO DEBT-ENSLAVE AND POISON AND KILL US…PRAYER TO THE SUPREME CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE, TO WITHHOLD JUDGEMENT ON AMERICA AND AMERICANS FOR ALLOWING OUR ONCE CONSTITUTIONAL, INTEREST-FREE CURRENCY TO FALL INTO THE HANDS OF THOSE WHO CALL THEMSELVES “JEWS”, AND ARE NOT, BUT ARE THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN!

    God WILL pass judgement on America, and Americans, if we do not take the control of our country out of the hands of the Luciferians in the ‘District’ of Criminals, who stood down, on 9/11, while Mossad carried out the destruction on 9/11, at the behest of the ‘City’ of London, and Vatican ‘City’ !!!!!
