"Competition is good, and the more competition you have, the better off you will be"
Edward Mango, NASA
The irony is that everyone is a Capitalist.
Everyone wants to improve their personal situation; everyone angles for a raise, if they can.
Everyone tends to want to improve their life, their kids' lives, with better education, better food, better vacations.
Older people want security. Young ones have dreams.
Everyone has self-interest as their first mandate of existence.
Politics must reflect human nature. The Governments of the world who attempt social planning, can be seen crumbling around us every year.
"God has given everybody his Freedom, nature has made no man a slave"
Alcidamas, 5th century, BC
Capitalism is more than just the economics of Monopoly.
It is an ancient philosophy of Liberty, self-responsibility, and respect for the property rights of others.
