First of all, I just wanted to say that the creator of this slideshare is very smart. He has laid out in very basic terms how capitalism truly works. We have to remember that damages created by crony capitalism is not the fault of true capitalism.
And due to the fact that I will be debating a communist on Saturday, I’ve decided to dedicate the next few posts to economics, specifically debunking communism. I’ve got a lot of research to do, and a lot of arguments to make.
Never grow rusty. An F17 that hasn’t been used in years is no match for a cannon fresh off the assembly line. Past glory stops mattering as soon as its capability to aid us disappears.
Communism is a weak ideology. But a Capitalist who can’t defend himself won’t automatically win every debate simply because his ideology is superior. You have to be able to defend your claims. If you can’t, it doesn’t matter whether or not you’re right.
Honor DOES matter. It is arguably the core of human history. What is not done in the name of honor? Why do we strive to be rich? What does a big house and success mean? What does an empire stand for if not honor?
I’m straying off, so I’ll make a separate post on all of this later, but I’ll end with this: You have to be as strong as you can as often as you can. Look at your opponent not with pity, but with hubris. If you’re right, if you can defend your claims, if you’re a strong debater, if you’re knowledgeable on the subject, and if you WANT to win, you’ll be more than just a man.
You’ll be unstoppable.
