I've never been an Ayn Rand fan at all, yet you make some damn fine points. I guess you did a really good job of proving that when you strip away all
the BS philosophical differences both Left and Right can end up agreeing on some very fundamental issues. Bravo!
Once you realize all the money the American people are hemorrhaging flows to the Banksters and the Banksters are using that money to BUY the media,
politicians, universities and "grassroots" organizations, you then realize the Left/Right divide is artificially created to keep us from spotting
our true enemy.
If you are savvy about what is happening beneath all the propaganda, Atlas Shrugged part I will seem VERY true to life even though it was written more
than a half century ago. This is why the puppet media MUST bash it.
The last thing the banksters want is savvy left leaning people to look at the movie objectively because it points out who our real enemies are.
Think about it the REAL Christian ethic is about brotherhood and charity is that really so different from what the left is about?
The Banksters have to dig pretty deep to find things to get the left and right to fight about.
For example my parents were died in the wool Republicans. Dad studied to be a Lutheran minister. His roommate in college was Pastor for our church.
Yet both my mother (1917-1981) and grandmother were FOR legalizing prostitution and abortion. WHY??? because they were aware of the horrors created
by coat hanger abortions and defacto white slavery.
So yes without the media stirring up the fight, I think the left and right would find we have a lot more in common than we think.
I am a die-hard Capitalist but I would love to see corporations kept to a maximum size of maybe 1000 to 10,000 employees.
Why? Because the FACTS show small businesses, under 500 employees, are the most innovative and productive. Small businesses produce 13 times more
patents per employee than larger firms. They are also the companies where the owners are most likely to interact directly with their employees as
people. When Mr. Big Shot has met Joe Sixpack and his wife and kids, when HE hands Joe his paycheck every week, then Joe will tell Mr. Big Shot when
there are problems on the plant floor and Mr. Big Shot will help Joe and his family when tragedy strikes. (based on personal experience)
Also I would love to see more employee owned corporations. Again it is a win-win situation. If you OWN the company you are going to take a greater
interest in it, you are going to tell the Corporate Raiders to go to Hades and since you are part owner there is no need for a union.
As far as I am concerned employees holding stock bought with their wealth is REAL capitalism. It is a far cry from a banker lending fiat fairy dust
to a corporate raider so he can put together a leveraged buyout and when he gets control tears apart the corporation because the equipment and land is
worth more than the business is worth as a going concern. That is nothing but fraud and theft and should have been outlawed from the get go. It is
also one of the reason the USA is now in a world of hurt. I knew a guy in Boston who literally packed up US factories and shipped them overseas for a
Again are my "Capitalistic" ideas all that distasteful to the left leaning moderates?
