The best explanation of Capitalism ever?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Glenn spoke with Rabbi Lapin on radio this morning and discussed why the Rabbi hates the word ‘Capitalism’. Glenn loves the way Rabbi Lapin explains the concept of Capitalism — is this the best explanation of it you’ve ever heard?

    I’m just 5 minutes into this but this is great. I would just add that not only is taxation a form of theft in terms of time (which is correct) but it is also theft in terms of property. Real money (maybe not fiat money) is simply a representation of assets that you have the ability to hold. Money can ony be gained in the free market by creating goods or services that add value to society. This is not evil.

    Bob Murphy explains it well

    Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
    Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
    A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
    Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
    Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
    Matthew 7: 16-20
    Good men and women will perform good works. That’s how you’ll know who you can trust.

    Couldn’t see/hear what the Rabbi had to say as the area where that info was is totally blank. Tried the UTube link but there was so much superfluouse stuff that I couldn’t stand to wait long enough for the speaker to get to the nitty gritty of the topic.  I am one who prefers that the subject matter just be put right up front without 15 minutes of introductory stuff.

    God has not designed all mankind to be equal in finances. He did design mankind to be equal to the point of the percentages of being born without any handicaps.  In all God’s designs there is and always will be the percentages of some being born handicapped in someway. Clearly God knew that because it took Him many thousands of years to manipulate the DNA strands to design All Creation. Nothing is supposed to be perfect and or equal in God’s mind and God’s world. We are what we are and WE are supposed to figure out , now that we are here, how to deal with our differences and our handicaps. If you don’t believe in God the Creator, then you cannot see the Truth. Only God is perfect. The rest of us on earth are just creations with good and bad qualities, with good minds, or bad, with all our limbs or missing some, but …but we are all equal in God’s eyes. That is the whole truth.  We see handicaps, God does not. We see rich folks and poor folks, God only sees us.
