Government keeps growing -- and freedom keeps shrinking -- because we fail to make the moral case for free enterprise. Based on his best-selling book "The Road to Freedom," AEI President Arthur C. Brooks explains how we can win the fight for free enterprise by articulating what's written on our hearts. "We have to see that we're not in an economic battle for the future of America," Arthur says. "We're in a moral battle."
Here is an explanation of free enterprise that even your crazy liberal neighbor might understand.
What’s eternally surprising is that free enterprise ever has to be defended at all.
I’d go so far as to say that a very powerful definition of immorality is the rejection of free enterprise.
A couple of hundred million dead victims of collectivist governments of the last century would probably agree with me, too.
The Republican slogan for 2012 should be “Restore Free Enterprise”.
