CNN is focusing on the actions of Hugo Chavez asking if he is paving the way towards communism. You communism; it’s one of those things that we are taught is bad yet we are never taught what it really is and why it is bad. You know…like liberalism.
Well CNN is framing the argument this way; they are saying that Chavez is like a modern day Robin Hood, taking land from the rich and providing land for the poor. Well let me ask Wolf Blitzer and company this…why didn’t you to a piece on the new eminent domain laws that permit rich people to take land away from poorer people and why didn’t you ask if that was paving the way towards fascism? Why didn’t you do an in depth report on capitalism and the wonderful things it has done for the people of the world. Oh, maybe it is because the overwhelming majority of people around the world have been victimized or expoited by capitalism while only about 5% of the population really truly benefits from it.
Capitalism is like the game of Monopoly; wealth consolidates until everyone looses except for the one who ends up with everything! If that’s the alternative to communism…count me in. Don’t get me wrong, I think capitalism is a good thing. Regulated capitalism is a good thing that is; unregulated capitalism is fascism and that’s what George W. Bush means by freedom, free trade and open markets. It means freedom from regulation for people with money to use that money to take your money away! Well Wolf & CNN; when is that report going to air? Think about it!
