What people don’t seem to understand is that all the incredible things that we have, were made by and because of capitalism, and the freedom to invent things.

We are in what I consider to be incredible times, and yet such dangerous times. As far as dangerous goes, I’m talking about the societal change toward socialism, which is simply 101 toward graduating into communism. The cancel culture is insanity on steroids, the things that seem to offend people are so petty, that I don’t know how they live.
What people don’t seem to understand is that all the incredible things that we have, were made by and because of capitalism, and the freedom to invent things. If the market demanded it, people would make it. AAPL didn’t make cell phones to show off their engineering prowess, they made phones because people with money wanted to buy them. It’s terribly easy to understand. Unless of course you’re a 20 year old college kid, wearing 150 dollar sneaks, sporting a 200 dollar leather jacket, wearing 70 dollar jeans, talking on a 1000 dollar phone, going to a 70grand a year school, while eating 5 meals a day. Then you’re oppressed and/or suppressed. Offended by everything, and obviously the world is unkind to you. Somehow. Oh, and it all needs to be fixed. Because of, well, some reason.
