    THE CRUX ^ | June 20, 2017 | Alexander Green
    Alex Green: Why your kids hate capitalism THE CRUX - From Alexander Green, Chief Investment Strategist, The Oxford Club: Equity investors rarely stop to think about it, but the stock market is the essence of capitalism: the private ownership of the means of production. With very little money and a quick phone call – or a click of the mouse – you can own a fractional interest in any of thousands of the nation’s most profitable businesses. The system is fair too. You will pay (and receive) no more or less for your shares than the wealthy do. And thanks...

    Continuing from my previous article on the Democrat's war on free markets and unfair anti-capitalist regulations targeting indie software makers, I said that the best way to stick it to these big companies that back the socialist agenda of the DNC was to buy indie and boycott the big bolshevik businesses. I mean they got to where they were because of capitalism and now they want to ruin it for all of us just so they can avoid competition! SO! We here present our top 10 list of indie games you gotta play! Along with Top 10 Flash games online!...

    A few years ago I did an article about net neutrality and government attempts to ban the internet or make it obsolete through over regulations and limited choices. This is something all the Democrats support doing in every facet of our lives. They want to make it a crime to even pee without permission by some expensive overpaid bureaucrat. The internet is the last great vestige of freedom of thought. The one place where we can read play and watch whatever we want when we want to. But liberals and big government supporters and the big bolshevik supporting corporations that...
  • Trump ascension corporate coup: Naomi Klein (Unintentionally funny)

    Author and activist Naomi Klein was on a visit to Sydney last November when Donald Trump shocked the US and Western political establishment by taking the White House. "I think a great many of us felt that the world had just turned upside down, but [in Australia] I literally felt the world had turned upside down," she says, recalling that moment of supreme disorientation. Since then, unlike many American liberals, Klein has been fixated less by the drip-drip of revelations about the Trump campaign's murky links to the Kremlin, and more with what she calls the "corporate coup" taking place...

    Lovers of socialism didn't like my column last week. I wrote that Venezuela's collapse shows the cluelessness of celebrities like Michael Moore, Oliver Stone and Noam Chomsky, who'd praised Venezuela's leader. Chomsky called me "an utter coward" for mocking him and said he expected "an abject apology." He won't get one. As Venezuelan-born filmmaker Thor Halvorssen puts it, "Chomsky provided cover for a regime where 11,500 infants died from lack of medical care." But assigning blame matters less than what should be done now. After the regime collapses, what comes next? How about trying capitalism? That's what Erick Brimen suggests....

    Would the Mark Zuckerberg of 2017—who recently gave the commencement address at Harvard—have started Facebook? Likewise, would the Mark Zuckerberg of 2004—who was instrumental in building the world’s largest, most popular social networking website in the world—have given the 2017 commencement address at Harvard University? As has been well documented over the last several days—most notably by Rush Limbaugh—Zuckerberg’s 2017 commencement address was laden with socialistic language and ideas that run quite contrary to what is necessary to build a company with thousands of employees and whose annual revenue is measured in billions of dollars. (Ask Venezuelans.)
  • Chomsky's Venezuela Lesson

    Venezuela descends into chaos. Its people, once the wealthiest in Latin America, starve. Even The New York Times runs headlines like "Dying Infants and No Medicine." My Venezuelan-born friend Kenny says his relatives are speaking differently. Cousins who once answered "Fine" or "Good" when asked, "How are you?" now say, "We're eating." Eating is a big deal in the country that's given birth to jokes about a "Venezuelan diet." A survey by three universities found 75 percent of Venezuelans lost an average 19 pounds this year. So are American celebrities who championed Venezuela's "people's revolution" embarrassed? Will they admit they...

    Cronyism is alive and well in the Swamp. “We The People” who resoundingly voted to “Drain the Swamp” will lose if the status quo is allowed to win. “Status quo, you know, is Latin for ‘the mess we’re in’.”—Ronald Reagan Crony capitalism is defined as an economic system characterized by close, mutually advantageous relationships between business leaders and government officials. Many of our nation’s biggest companies come to the Washington Swamp, to hire lobbyists to preserve tax breaks, to use the power of government for competitive reasons or to secure government money for corporate projects. And Elizabeth Warren is happy...

    Pope Francis saluted the role of entrepreneurs in spurring economic development, but said that business decisions must be based on the workers’ welfare, in a meeting with workers and management in Genoa on May 27. Speaking at the Ilva factory during his Saturday visit to Genoa, the Pope acknowledged that “there is no good economy without a good entrepreneur.” He spoke of the ability of entrepreneurs “to create: to create jobs, to create products.” However, the Pope went on to draw a sharp distinction between entrepreneurs and speculators. “The speculator does not love his company, he does not love his...

    Speaking to workers and business people in Italy’s port city of Genoa Saturday, Pope Francis surprised his hearers by praising entrepreneurship and touting the importance of healthy businesses for the economy. “There can’t be a good economy without good businessmen, without their capacity to create and to produce,” he said, shattering his reputation as an enemy of the free market economy. The Pope recognized that the essential value of work and employment is only possible when companies are sound and successful. Without denouncing unemployment benefits, Francis insisted that state intervention wasn’t a real solution. “A monthly check from the state...

    It's now been scientifically proven that the wimpier the guy, the more likely he is to be a socialist. No kidding. According to a new study, physically weaker men are more prone to support socialism, a trend psychologists say may be because they feel they can’t compete against stronger men and are therefore consider inequality more threatening.  According to the Times, U.K., Brunel University ran a study on 171 men, measuring everything from their strength, height, weight and even bicep circumference. What the university found was that the physically inferior men tended to be the ones who said they supported the redistribution...

    Student also had her LinkedIn profile posted, called racist. Jessica Murphy, a 20-year-old student at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay, recently published a column that represented the culmination of months’ worth of work and research, including a dozen public records act requests to the University of Wisconsin system. Her target? Biased classes offered through the public university system that indoctrinate rather than teach, and “degrade capitalism, praise Marxism and encourage a ‘social justice warrior’ ideology,” she wrote in her piece, headlined “Top Five Wasteful Classes in the UW System.” Published Monday by the MacIver Institute, a Wisconsin-based think tank...

    A new book that sells the concept of Communism “in the simple terms of a children’s story” has failed to sell on — except in the category for true believers. “Communism for Kids” by MIT Press “unfolds like a story, with jealous princesses, fancy swords, displaced peasants, mean bosses, and tired workers,” its page explains. […] Scathing customer reviews give the book a rating of only 1.7 out of 5 stars, with comments noting communism has killed “over 60 million people” and asking, “If Communism is so great why are they selling the book. Isn’t that capitalism?” …

    Nazly Sobhi Damasio, founder of La Feminista Descolonial, an feminist, anti-colonial, and anti-capitalist platform, demanded this week that men and "white womxn" pay her "because they consume intellectual, emotional & creative labor 24/7 w/o my consent." Ms. Damasio further argued that she should be able to receieve that money and never be questioned about how she spends it, as that would be "gross, classist and frankly none of your business:" Damasio had made similar demands last week as well: She has also written extensively about "Zionism," "cis bodies," and other topics online: According to an article published in Latina, Ms....

    TAKE THE NEXT STEP AMERICA When people think of the United States of America, they tend to think of a few things right away: freedom, power, and capitalism. To true Americans, these three values are to be defended more strongly than life itself. But unfortunately, while many people are staunch believers in capitalism, few people take it to the next logical step: nationalism. Competition through capitalism is what forces companies to be better. It is what has made us the world power we are today. The influential philosophers of modernity, Ayn Rand and Adam Smith, praised our economic system as...

    One of the most surprising developments from last year’s presidential campaign was the reach enjoyed by Bernie Sanders, a candidate who unabashedly championed socialism as a solution to the country’s economic ills. In the Michigan Democratic primary, Sanders took first place with 598,943 votes to Hillary Clinton's 581,775 votes, winning 87 percent of Democratic voters between the ages of 18-24. No one seemed more amazed by this than Konstantin Zhukov, a Russian immigrant who was studying at Northwood University during last year’s election season. “When I heard Bernie Sanders’ ideas, I was surprised to hear them, but at the same...

    Today’s post will be quite short because a) we arrived back at our Park City bunker very late late last night: 12:30 AM local time, 2:30 AM from whence we came, and 2) when we got here the house was 43 degrees as the furnace had quit working at some point in the last 10 days. So I’m cold, I’m tired, and I’m extremely cranky; you really don’t want to interact with me right now.Instead I ask you to contemplate how badly the country needs somebody like Betsy DeVos in charge of public education when you consider the ramifications of...

    One of the speakers at this year’s Modern Language Association (MLA) meeting brought up a fascinating quote by William Wordsworth that may well be an indictment of the annual conclave of English professors: "To dissect is to murder." If that is so, much of the professoriat at the MLA meeting could be up on assault charges. If he hadn't already passed away, Herman Melville might want to file such a complaint. Melville, of course, is the author of Moby Dick. Many will probably recognize this as the one about a one-legged sea captain pursuing a great big whale. Yet and...
