Evo Morales: “Capitalism is the worst enemy of humanity”, again.

That is what he informed the UN in 2007, and he is making that same claim today in 2009.

Mr. Morales I have a simple question for you.  How many people over the history of socialism and/or communism have sought refuge in countries practicing those forms of governance?  Have any of those countries raised the standards of living to more of its population than the USA?  Who have been the most productive and more charitable, the USA or Russia or China or Cuba?  What country has defended freedom around the world?

You say to save humanity, we must save the earth and that capitalism is “anti-earth”, I think not.  You say that it is not the people of the USA that you have a problem with, but the leaders.  Perhaps you do not understand that “we the people” are the consumers and the users and the producers, so when you blame capitalism you are blaming the people of the USA.

I think you need to go back to the drawing board and develop a better argument and get your history straight.

I know there are those of you on the left who will agree with Mr. Morales, and I am sorry for your hatred toward the economic system that has given us so much for so long.  I think when we challenge ourselves to which system we would rather live by and become totally honest we can all agree that freedom of movement, property rights and competition in a free market have been the hallmarks of why capitalism is still the only system that really does raise everyone’s boats.  It may not raise them all to the same level as some would like, but they are risen to a level that is better than any other country in this world.

  1. And, oh boy, goody-goody – that righteous, self-serving MILLIONAIRE, Michael Moore, is coming out with yet another “in-depth, carefully researched” piece of toilet-paper journalism this week. Wonder if he is going to have his chauffeur drive him to the premiere…or will he use his private jet. Hmmm, decisions, decisions…

  2. Don’t you just love their hypocrisy?
    What a crazy world we do live in, and scary-the inmates are running the asylum.
