Treatise On Kind Capitalism & Scary Socialism

Yesterday, I had the honor to be on the same editorial page as Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft over at America Issues Project. Jim has been my blog hero since the beginning along with The Anchoress, so it was quite an honor. He’s talking about the big, fat liar, Al Gore. Kinda like when a rookie basketball player gets drafted onto a team which starts his hero. That was me yesterday.

It was the first day for AIP’s site and to introduce myself to that audience, I talked about how the perspective on socialism and capitalism is exactly backwards these days. Here’s a snippet of it:

The other axiom of socialism, the first being “I care,” is the inverse of this: “You don’t care.” Socialism depends on believing that people are fundamentally incapable of taking care of themselves. It’s a dark theory, really. A socialist views his neighbor with contempt believing that the neighbor needs to do things the “right” way. A socialist views his neighbor with suspicion and is convinced that his neighbor must be forced to do the correct thing because he won’t do the right thing on his own.

So please go over and read it. The AIP site is beautiful and easy to navigate and full of good stuff.
