A generation of those who received childhood participation medals, chafe at a merit-based reward system for their labors.
And older people, tired of being cheated by the greed of the others, begin to cast a longing eye toward socialism.
I’ve seen enough to know that most capitalism is better than most socialism, but at some point, either can become slavery.
After all, US slavery was a form of capitalism.
If we want to avoid socialism, we need to investigate American business practices that make socialism attractive.
Even as a conservative, I view business like I view immigrants; they should have to justify their existence in this country.
Let’s face it; humans are flawed and businesses and governments are extensions of those who create or manage them.
) Some immigrants come to America to integrate, assimilate, serve other people and prosper accordingly.
) Some Immigrants come to America to reap America’s wealth, then send it home.
) Yet others immigrants come only to invade, conquer and enslave America.
Businesses are like that, too.
From the consumer/citizen’s viewpoint, businesses exist for two reasons:
1) To deliver quality goods or services at a fair price.
2) To provide jobs locally.

I hope business leaders will examine their business practices and calibrate their enterprises toward beneficent capitalism.
If your business is not here to do good for others, I wish you would change your focus.
