The conditions for affirming capitalism
The Russell Kirk center has reminded us that Christians and others can rightfully affirm capitalism and the free enterprise system because this economic system has created the greatest real wealth for the greatest number, which then has led to broad generosity in the nation. But this does not apply when big capitalism, ruled by a few elite, controls the government, which is like fascism only with a few capitalists controlling government. This is the main reason why we have to get the money out of politics and go back to the original regionalism and decentralization of our original Constitution. We don't need big government socialism or fascism because they do not create the expanded real wealth and generosity of capitalism and free enterprise.
