"MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN" SO WE CAN ALL GET BACK TO MAKING "OBSCENE PROFITS" IN COMPARISON TO THE REST OF THE WORLD
A frequent criticism of Capitalism is that the corporations are not concerned about their workers, that they are, instead, only concerned with bilking their workers so they can make "obscene profits."
According to this line of thinking, if the corporations can bilk workers in other nations, then all the better for them.
This is a false understanding of Capitalism.
Capitalism is a system whereby individuals manifest the ideas in their heads, so they can build physical products and services, and thereby generate wealth for themselves.
In order to deliver the physical products and services, they must, inevitably, hire other people.
The people in nations like Mexico and Bangladesh take the jobs that pay very little, because it is worth it. There are not enough jobs that pay better, so they take the best they can get in their country.
The only reason people around the world have money is because either
1) they work in subsistence economy
2) THEY ARE MAKING MONEY OFF THE SYSTEMS, STRUCTURES AND IDEAS
(THAT IS THE FOUNDATION)
OF THE WORLD THAT AMERICANS AND EUROPEANS BUILT. ***
Before Americans and Europeans built the systems under which we live, most of the world existed entirely on a subsistence economy of farming, and making clothes. This is how the Native Americans lived. This is how Africans lived. This is how the whole world lived, until ideas were introduced that allowed human beings to farm better, make clothes better, and remove themselves from enslavement to mere subsistence.
People say, America uses 80% of the world's resources.
THAT MEANS 80% OF THE WORLD HAS JOBS BECAUSE AMERICA BUYS THEIR SHIT.
The obscene wealth American corporations generate is not the problem, nor is it a problem.
The only problems with Capitalism are the false structures of Socialism which are inserted, as quick fixes to temporary problems in the distribution of product, services, wealth.
It is time for us to concentrate on OUR ECONOMY.
It is time for us to fix our system. We need to eliminate the silly Socialist stopgaps in our system which only incentivize corporations to move their business elsewhere.
I hope Trump does what he says he's going to do
so ALL AMERICANS CAN GET BACK TO MAKING "OBSCENE PROFITS" IN COMPARISON TO THE REST OF THE WORLD.
It was never our responsibility to lower our standard of living so that the world could rise.
THAT'S NOT THE WAY CAPITALISM WORKS.
When Capitalism is allowed to work according to it's natural laws,
A RISING TIDE LIFTS ALL SHIPS.
WHEN AMERICA WORKS, THE REST OF THE WORLD WILL WORK BETTER.
*** Obviously this is hyperbole. China, Egypt, Rome, Greece, and other civilizations built themselves up to transcend a subsistence-level economy in the past. And European/American civilization built itself on the backs of those civilizations to a large extent.
