THE NEW “SOCIALIST” AMERICA

It used to be that the free market was fundamental to the West, the holy cow, the sacrosanct concept never to be lost sight of.

We were told that government should keep its nose out of business, out of the market.

What happened?
THE NEW “SOCIALIST” AMERICA

Donald Trump supposedly heads one of the primary two political parties in the West that espoused the ‘free market’ most strongly as their mantra.

Who knew it was to be dumped so unceremoniously in favor of state interference?
THE NEW “SOCIALIST” AMERICA

On an almost daily basis Trump tries to manipulate US business.

In his latest tirade he has commanded that all US businesses leave China.

And of course we all know about his poker player’s use of tariffs.

Isn’t it state socialism?
THE NEW “SOCIALIST” AMERICA

We’re not saying it’s wrong to be socialist. We believe the future belongs to hybrid systems, socialist compassion + ethical capitalism.

The hypocrisy in being proselytizing high priests of the free market & suddenly becoming heretics, is astounding.
THE NEW “SOCIALIST” AMERICA

It was said in the era of Reagan & Thatcher that government was useless when it came to business, that it should be left to the market to resolve whatever problems arose & the free functioning of the market was best.

This has now been reversed.
THE NEW “SOCIALIST” AMERICA

What Trump is doing has a name. Protectionism, the prime anathema of free marketers.

People like Milton Friedman advocated as holy writ that everyone ought to be free to purchase their resources, services & products wherever they were cheapest.
THE NEW “SOCIALIST” AMERICA

In the case of Huawei especially western states, particularly the USA seem to believe they know
best.

Of course their economic interference is given the fig leaf of state security to cover it, but in reality it is an attempt to manipulate the market.
THE NEW “SOCIALIST” AMERICA

The West doesn’t like being beaten at its own game.

Since the Berlin wall fell & the rise of China the competition has grown ever greater.

But wasn’t the mantra in the West that went with free markets something about competition being good??
THE NEW “SOCIALIST” AMERICA

If the West loses this economic war it loses its position as World Control HQ, a position it has held for centuries.

The western power junkies will lose their fix & their addiction has reached levels where they simply cannot bear this loss.
THE NEW “SOCIALIST” AMERICA

The USA is as far from being truly socialist as it gets of course. Though without its state services from firefighters to police it would be constantly in chaos.

It is only in terms of international economics 'state knows best' rears its ugly head.
THE NEW “SOCIALIST” AMERICA

The West is fighting to weaken the East & using every dirty trick to do so.

Trump, arguably the dirtiest dealing New York businessman ever is well placed to use his corrupt business tactics to do it.

Milton Friedman is surely rolling in his grave.
THE NEW “SOCIALIST” AMERICA

The gloves are off. The West is at war with the East.

Every weapon in its economic armory is being used to weaken competitors. Its continuing ability to manipulate our world is all that matters to it.

The free market, so-called, is officially dead.
