So a political elitist is now helping to a run an energy firm. This shouldn't surprising, after all , it's how fascism was designed to deal with
business markets. Individuals can own a business, but must run exactly the way the government handbook dictates. Step outside of this dictation and
your permit to do business is revoked. So who better to help run a company than a person who is accustomed to the spirit of the regulations.
It's why we need big big business and big government. It's a symbiotic relationship.
Take farming for instance. It's tough to levy and incorporate big government regulation on 50,000 independent farms. But put those 50,000 farms under
the strict contract of merely 5 different corporations headed by former political sphere CEOs and the big government regulation is quickly passed down
and adhered to.
This is happening in every industry, and is why big governments make sweet heart deals with big corporations and refuse to give the same leniency to
small independent companies.
Once your government starts owning companies that compete against private corporations your society moves from a fascist market design to a national
socialist market design. Once your government owns all businesses and has no individual competition your society has moved from a national socialist
market into a communist market.
In a free market government is not involved in business. All business receive the same treatment. The way the business in this design is run is
largely unregulated and it's up to the consumer to decide who they purchase from. If the people are not moral enough to avoid purchasing from corrupt
companies, like those who poison the environment, the free market can not last and you need to move into a fascist design.
"America is great because America is good." - Alexis de Tocqueville
What Tocqueville meant here was that because the people were moral and good, the free market could flourish. As the people have become more and more
demoralized, and taken more liberty and asserted less responsibility, we've naturally moved from a free market design into a fascist design
(1960's-1980's) out of necessity, and are now in the early stages of the national socialist design transformation. Whenever people think National
Socialism they always compare it to National Socialist (NAZI) Germany, but I think America's road to national socialism is more accurately paralleled
by turn of the century Italy.
This is a great topic, good thread. More people need to learn about these philosophies and contemplate every day decisions with a more specific type
of saliency if they are to truly be free men and women.
