Weighing the Economic Scales of Politics

Free Market | Fascism | Nazism | Socialism | Communism

Economic *POLICY* is much easier to understand than the international bankers would want you to believe. THEY try to overcomplicate simple issues with complex charts and graphics. The Truth remains simple; there are 2 main issues.

#1 -isms : The only 1% of difference between Fascism, Nazism, Socialism, and Communism. is how many CORPORATIONS are either *OWNED* or *CONTROLLED* (directly or indirectly) by government. In a truly *FREE* MARKET the answer is e) none of the above. People are *FREE* to enjoy the occupation of their OWN choice in a FREE-ENTERPRISE economic system.

#2 CENTRAL BANKS : A "Central Bank" is the 5th plank of the Communist Manifesto. International bankers (Evelyn de Rothschild) and oil men (David Rockefeller) have commit treason against the United States and against the people of the United States by maintaining the installation of our THIRD Central bank. The first 2 "central banks" were abolished by Thomas Jefferson & Andrew Jackson. The "Federal Reserve Bank", a privately owned - NOT federal bank, is the 3rd. The IRS collects INTEREST on our "debt" to FOREIGN Bankers.

Don't be conned by foreign bankers advocating for YOU to spend YOUR money on THEIR products - at cost PLUS interest.

Competitive Free-Enterprise Economic System
This video clip from the JBS documentary video "Overview of America" explains differences between the major economic systems of Free Market Capitalism, Fascism, Nazism, Socialism, and Communism.

Most people are confused about the different characteristics of major economic systems. During the 20th century, Americans were led to believe that a "great struggle" existed between the Capitalist and Communist worlds, but most people do not know what the defining principals of the systems are.

Two major types of configurations of goverment and economy types would be:

  1. our Republic with a competitive, free enterprise economy
  2. an Oligarchy with a monopolistic, state-controlled economy

The practical application of the government and economy in the USA has been gradually shifting to the left on the spectrum from being a free enterprise Republic. See the book "Restoring the Rights of the States and the People".

 

The Corporation
What is CAPITALISM?

Capitalism |ˈkapətlˌizəm| noun: An economic and political system in which a country's trade and industry are controlled by PRIVATE owners for profit, rather than by the state. The capitalism of emerging nations, FREE enterprise, private enterprise, the FREE market. Antonym: communism.

One of the most basic aspects of any economic system is the concept of "capital", which means "the means of production". An example of capital is explained as a spear being made as the result of someone’s time and energy in order for that person to eventually be able to use to spear to catch fish to eat. Capital can be tools, machinery, and even people.

All economic scales involve CAPITAL (the means of production) - so the term "Capitalism" is again very deliberately confusing. It is WHO CONTROLS the capital that defines the difference between each different economic system. All types of economic systems include elements of "capital" (the means of production) and "property" (entitlements to ownership), with differences between the systems being varying combinations of types of ownership and control of "capital" and "property".

Capitalist Oligarchy

Ownership of Capital
By strict definition, every type of economic system is "capitalist", including Communism. The difference between Communism and the American Capitalist type of systems lies in the ownership of the capital. Communist capital is "monopolistic and state controlled", and American capital is "competitive free enterprise".

The best way to judge or compare economic systems is through an analysis of ownership and control of capital. John McManus observes: "In the last century or so, there have been basically four forms of state-controlled economies, all on the far left of the economic spectrum: fascism, nazism, socialism, and communism. In each, the government controls the capital. The difference among these is how much is owned or controlled outright by the government."

State-Controlled Economy Government Controls Capital
In all of these types of political-economic arrangements, the government, which is invariably a despotic oligarchy, controls the means of production, even if it does not outright own them.

The only alternative to this type of predatory economic arrangement is a free marketplace, wherein all people remain free to exercise their God-given rights and abilities and to keep and exchange the product of their labor as they see fit.

 

Competetive Free Enterprise
Some basic differences exist between the two major types of economic systems. In the competitive free enterprise system, capital or property is both owned privately and controlled privately. In a monopolistic system, holding title to capital can be accomplished privately or by the state, however, the capital is controlled by the state or the elite few who control the state.

 

"The Land of the FREE" is a Free-Enterprise Economy

"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men FREE to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall NOT take from the mouth of labor and bread it has EARNED.
This is the sum of good government." — Thomas Jefferson

Federal Reserve Notes are FIAT
A REALLY Free-Enterprise Economy is the true definition of economic freedom. In a Free-Market, business owners are FREE to keep their profits and the fruits of their labor. A Free-Enterprise Economy encourages businesses to expand, resulting in the prosperity and wealth of a strong country. In a Free-Market, the federal government ONLY protects business owners and their workers from illegal fraud, especially in international trade - BUT the federal government cannot dictate where companies get their raw materials, what types of products or services they offer, nor how they spend their money after they earn it.

Hard-working competitive free enterprise producers create low prices and high quality. Competition results in excellence, and always has.

Overview of America
The term "free market" means a self regulating system in which all parties are completely free to transact with one another, and where force, fraud or injury damages one party, the government’s role is only to punish those who commit such offenses and to vindicate the rights of the other party, which protects the integrity of the free market.

"Private Property" means private ownership and control of property being a key component in the free enterprise system. In order for ownership of private property to be complete, four aspects must be met: the person’s right for Title, Control, Use, and the Ability to Dispose Of . In a free market economy these aspects are unrestrained, as long as the person does not infringe on the rights of others. True ownership of property and freedom go hand in hand.

Although the TV propaganda seems to claim that Fascists are the extreme right-wing "fringe", and the Communists are extreme left-wing - Fascism is the first step in the degeneration process of a Free-Enterprise Economy toward Communism. The only thing the following NON-FREE economies are REALLY left or right of, is deliberately crafted propaganda designed to create confusion during this period of decline in freedom.

Feudalism

Feudalism |ˈfyoōdlˌizəm| noun historical: The dominant social system in medieval Europe, in which the nobility held lands from the Crown in exchange for military service, and vassals were in turn tenants of the nobles, while the peasants (villeins or serfs) were obliged to live on their lord's land and give him homage, labor, and a share of the produce, notionally in exchange for military protection.

Vassal |ˈvasəl| noun historical: A holder of land by feudal tenure on conditions of homage and allegiance. Aperson or country in a subordinate position to another. Serf, dependent, servant, slave, subject, bondsman, thrall, villein; historical vavasour, helot. ORIGIN late Middle English : via Old French from medieval Latin vassallus ‘retainer,’ of Celtic origin; compare with vavasour.

What is Fascism?

Fascism |ˈfa sh ˌizəm| (also Fascism) noun: An authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization. Extreme right-wing, authoritarian, or intolerant views or practice. ORIGIN from Italian fascismo, from fasciobundle, political group,’ from Latin fascis (see fasces). Authoritarianism, totalitarianism, dictatorship, despotism, autocracy; Nazism, rightism; nationalism, xenophobia, racism, anti-Semitism; jingoism, isolationism; neofascism, neo-Nazism.

fasces is THE symbol of fascismFaux-Stereotype: "The term Fascism was first used of the totalitarian right-wing nationalist regime of Mussolini in Italy (1922–1943), and the regimes of the Nazis in Germany and Franco in Spain were also fascist. Fascism tends to include a belief in the supremacy of one national or ethnic group, a contempt for democracy, an insistence on obedience to a powerful leader, and a strong demagogic approach."

Flag of CorporatismIn a Fascist system, the government does NOT own businesses on paper, but it does control them. In Mussolini’s Italy, even though he didn't hold title to businesses, he told the owners what to produce, how much to produce, when to produce, where to buy raw materials, who to hire, who to fire, and what prices to charge. The rest was "up to them". The fascist system is more efficient than other state-controlled systems due to those living under it thinking they still control their businesses. Such a government controls the owners through an array of taxations and regulations.

Fascism is REALLY defined as a government that CONTROLS major corporations. Fascist governments do NOT "own" anything on paper. In the case of the United States, international corporations CONTROL the government. The symbol for fascism is a fasces, which is an axe bound within a bundle of sticks; there have been TWO FASCI in the United States Capital right behind the podium where Congress makes laws, and where the President of the "free world" gives his state of the union speech.

Are You Paying Attention Yet?

There are 2 Fasces (THE symbol of Fascism) in Congress:

Fasces |ˈfasˌēz| plural noun historical: In ancient Rome, a bundle of rods with a projecting ax blade, carried by a lictor as a symbol of a magistrate's power (a civil officer or lay judge who administers the law). In Fascist Italy, such items used as emblems of authority. ORIGIN Latin, plural of fascis ‘bundle’.

What were the Nazis in World War II?

National Sozialistische DAP parteiabzeichen
Nazi
|ˈnätsē| noun ( pl. Nazis ) historical: A member of the National SOCIALIST German Workers' Party. ORIGIN German, abbreviation representing the pronunciation of Nati- in Nationalsozialist ‘national socialist.’

The Nazi Party was formed in Munich after World War I. It advocated right-wing authoritarian nationalist government and developed a racist ideology based on anti-Semitism and a belief in the superiority of "Aryan" Germans.

Its charismatic leader, Adolf Hitler, who was elected Chancellor in 1933, established a totalitarian dictatorship, rearmed Germany in support of expansionist foreign policies in central Europe, and thus precipitated World War II. The Nazi Party collapsed at the end of the war and was outlawed in Germany.

Swastica is NOT Nazi
Nazism is REALLY defined as the National SOCIALIST Workers Party of Germany, a SOCIALIST government that OWNS some major corporations.

Under Nazism, which means "national socialism", it’s proponents went one step further and acquired OWNERSHIP of some corporations such as Volkswagen (VW), but Hitler did not seize ownership of other industrial giants but rather just controlled them in the same way that Mussolini had controlled businesses in Italy.

Almost like a mirror image of Obama's takover of GM, Adolph HItler controlled Volkswagen during World War II - and by Hitler's orders, VW only produced war machines during WW2. If you ever wondered what the Germans were doing while Hitler was taking over their country with his brownshirts - maybe you should be asking yourself what are YOU doing while the USA is still in the longest war in American History? Some Patriots joke that the Romans were watching Roman Idol while Rome was burning to the ground; but it's not very funny when it's YOUR country...

What Is Socialism?

Socialism |ˈsō sh əˌlizəm| noun: A political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole. Policy or practice based on this theory. ORIGIN early 19th century: from French socialisme, from social.

Adjective: The socialist movement left-wing, progressive, leftist, labor, anti-corporate, antiglobalization; radical, revolutionary, militant; communist; informal lefty, red. Noun: a well-known socialist left-winger, leftist, progressive, progressivist; radical, revolutionary; communist, Marxist; informal lefty.

"Democracy is the road to socialism." — Karl Marx (father of communism)

Modern Economic TheoryFaux-Stereotype: The term "socialism" has been used to describe positions as far apart as anarchism, Soviet state communism, and social democracy; however, it necessarily implies an opposition to the untrammeled workings of the economic market. The socialist parties that have arisen in most European countries from the late 19th century have generally tended toward social democracy.

Socialism is REALLY defined as a government that OWNS most major corporations. Socialist government officials aquire possession of major industries, such as the education, transportation, communications, utilities, farms, major factories, and the labor force in a nation. This allows for government to leverage control over the entire economy. Through ownership of these vital segments of the industry, and by creating government regulatory agencies, socialists gain control over virtually everything else. Socialized companies eliminate the desire of a business owner or CEO to ensure the company buildings and facilities are kept in good condition, and that the workers are treated fairly. The lack of personal benefits from growing a business really stifles innovation and creativity.

Socialism is where government officials aquire possession of major industries, such as transportation, communications, and utilities,

In a monopolistic system, holding title to capital can be accomplished privately or by the state, however, the capital is controlled by the state or the elite few who control the state.

In Marxist theory, Socialism is a TRANSITIONAL social state
between the overthrow of capitalism - and the realization of communism.

What is Communism?

Communism |ˈkämyəˌnizəm| (often Communism) noun: A political theory derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society in which all property is publicly OWNED , and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs. ORIGIN mid 19th century: from French communisme, from commun (common). See also Marxism.

Communism is the "granddaddy of all" in the economic sense. Under this system all of the capital is owned and controlled by the State.

Communism is REALLY defined as a government that OWNS ALL the capital. Although by strict modern [broken] definition, we are told that the PEOPLE control the capital in communist nations - but just open your eyes to Russia and communist China - do the PEOPLE REALLY OWN the capital? Read the Manifesto to find the REAL answer. Often in China the government forcibly kicks senior citizens out of their OWN homes.

Some communist countries will even dictate what YOUR job will be. Even if a Russian citizen wants to be an artist, he might still be ordered to work on a boring assembly line putting the same screw into the same part for the rest of his life; the Russian government has their own artists to produce artwork for them, so there is no reason for them allow the people the freedom to create artworks with the possibility of becoming a professional artist in the field of their choice. It's called a theory because it didn't work. Just ask his holyness the Dalai Lama; red China exiled him from Tibet decades ago.

The most familiar form of communism is that established by the Bolsheviks after the Russian Revolution of 1917, and it has generally been understood in terms of the system practiced by the former USSR and its allies in eastern Europe, in China since 1949, and in some developing countries such as Cuba, Vietnam, and North Korea. Communism embraced a revolutionary ideology (in THEORY) in which the state would wither away after the overthrow of the capitalist system. In practice, however, the state grew to control all aspects of communist society. Communism in eastern Europe collapsed in the late 1980s and early 1990s against a background of failure to meet people's economic expectations, a shift to more democracy in political life, and increasing nationalism such as that which led to the breakup of the USSR.

Karl Marx
Marxism
|ˈmärkˌsizəm| noun: Marxist. Marxian. The political and economic THEORIES of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, later developed by their followers to form the basis for the THEORY and practice of communism. Central to Marxist THEORY is an explanation of social change in terms of economic factors, according to which the means of production (THE CAPITAL; isn't it just greedy capitalism?) provide the economic base, which influences or determines the political and ideological superstructure. Marx and Engels predicted the revolutionary overthrow of capitalism by the proletariat and the eventual attainment of a classless communist society.

Karl Heinrich Marx (May 5, 1818 – March 14, 1883) was a German philosopher, political economist, historian, political theorist, sociologist, and communist revolutionary, whose ideas played a significant role in the development of modern communism and socialism. Marx summarized his approach in the first line of chapter one of The Communist Manifesto, published in 1848: "The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles." Marx argued that capitalism, like previous socioeconomic systems, would inevitably produce internal tensions which would lead to its destruction. Just as capitalism replaced feudalism, he believed socialism would, in its turn, replace capitalism, and lead to a stateless, classless society called pure communism. This would emerge after a transitional period called the "dictatorship of the proletariat": a period sometimes referred to as the "workers state" or "workers' democracy". In section one of The Communist Manifesto Marx describes feudalism, capitalism, and the role internal social contradictions play in the historical process.

The Communist Manifesto, which contains the basic program for all Communist and Socialists, explicitly preaches the destruction and abolition of private property. Karl Marx understood the power of controlling capital as have all Communists who have ever looked and still look to Marx as their leader. State-controlled capitalism (Communism) always results in high prices and low quality, because the lack of competition offers no incentive to improve.
