Co-Founder of Home Depot, Bernie Marcus, speaks out against socialism in a short new video. In it, he explains to Americans why the free market system has done more for people in poverty than any other system in the world and is also a big reason why Americans are the most charitable people in the world:
While the video isn’t an in-depth defense of capitalism, Marcus hits the major themes quite well.
Here’s a good snippet from the video (via Free Beacon):
“Young people especially have been indoctrinated into believing that free enterprise is immoral because it enriches the greedy and depresses the poor. Even the word ‘capitalism’ is not politically correct to use, but the reality is that the free market system has created the biggest middle class population in the world and while some may say socialism is well-intentioned, the fact is it robs people of their independence, their dignity, and their finances leading to government dependence, suppression of ideas, and lower standards of living for those under its thumb.”
I don’t know how well this will resonate with Americans on the left, but he’s absolutely correct here and you should definitely share the video to as many as you can in hopes that people who aren’t closed off to the truth will see it.
