A seemingly accelerating trend with many Americans is to look with skepticism and a jaundiced perspective in business, capitalism, and the profit motive. In spite of efforts by some to rewrite history, those of us who are students of history recognize that capitalism made America the economic superpower that it is. And the more we allow the government to interfere in our economy, the more we move toward a fascistic system where the government controls the means of production.
Business and the profit motive have turned us from an agrarian to a high-tech producing and consuming nation. All of us are dependent upon business and the profit motive for everything we do every day.
