Captain Marvel was a Socialist and a Fascist
I took the wife out to see Captain Marvel tonight, and without spoiling anything I want to make a couple of comments…
They start the movie out saying how everything is for the good Kree – an extraterrestrial race of warmongering beings.
They way they talked reminded me of the fascists and socialists we have here on earth. Everything is for the good of society no matter what the costs are.
They think they know what is best for you…
Of course, they say they want democratic socialism, not that nasty Venezuelan socialism, more like Sweden or other Scandinavian countries.
Well, I am here to tell you that these countries are far from socialists, they are free market economies, respect private property and are not centrally planned.
Even the Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen had this to say in his speech at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government: “I know that some people in the US associate the Nordic model with some sort of socialism. Therefore, I would like to make one thing clear. Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy. Denmark is a market economy“
It’s so sad, everywhere I look I see people trying to tare down liberty and replace it with big government that they expect to do everything for you…
…in more than a hundred years of failed central planning, there is not one place on earth where this has worked.
It does not stop people from trying though…
Let me try to make it as simple as I possibly can: people are motivated by their own self-interest, the easiest way to motivate someone is to let them determine their own fate. If they work harder and smarter they get more, if they are lazy and irresponsible they get nothing. When you take away this motivation things fall apart.
By allowing me to think of myself I actually benefit society because I drive the economy by creating jobs and wealth.
Always remember, as entrepreneurs and investors what you do is moral and just, never let anyone tell you differently.
