I wish I were up to writing all that needs to be said, but I’ve just read how Labor is going to deliver us “the new capitalism”.
Here is how the old capitalism worked. Individuals would put their own capital at risk and if it worked out they would earn a living, and sometimes become rich. Meanwhile, the community would become more prosperous over time.
Now the word used by our Treasurer is “co-investment’. The government will lead the way. It will be in “partnership”. They are such buffoons but we will all pay for their stupidity. These socialists have never understood a thing about how an economy works.
This is from a comment at Instapundit. The article commented on is by Sam Harris:
You cannot reason with these people.Harris is known for his writing on atheism which he is self-declared.
This is the comment:
An atheist is someone who has replaced a belief in God w/ a belief in some other higher power – in our country, it’s often government or Democrats or Progressives etc, but if you listen – truly listen – they’re describing a god. The brilliant CafeHayek people make a similar point: if you listen to progressives describe how central planning works, they’re clearly assuming divine intervention in the form of some wise government official who knows all & loves all etc.
You literally can’t make any of their theories work unless you assume a god, so they’re not really atheists – they just prefer bureaucrats or PhDs to the Judeo-Christian God.
