Big Business = Absence of Free Enterprise

Capitalism is not equivalent to the practice of Free Enterprise. The conditions that allow Big Business to dominate the economy, result from the lack of real competition. Regulation is the silent partner of the multinational. Government protection builds empires, one monopoly at a time. Cash is king when elimination of your rival is your goal. Mergers and acquisitions, tender offers, or a hostile take over - are all tools of the trade. But the most productive method to achieve dominance is to bankrupt your competitor.

Over a century ago, the underlying prime objective for the captains of industry, was to eliminate any challenger. Their ultimate prize was the ability to set prices and control their markets. Simple and straight forward, easy to understand.

The cry for government regulation - breakup the Trusts, was the solution that was supposed to tame the greed of those evil Capitalist’s. Well, how did we do? That approach made them even stronger. Today the challenge has changed in style, but the game is still the same. Profits are still good, but cartels are pigs . . .

Understand that the systemic economic paradox is based upon the natural differences in talent, motivation and methods that drive business organizations. There is no guarantee for success. When the abilities of a visionary tycoon can build an empire, we have a direct link for corporate responsibility. But when conglomerates are the design and products of committee cultures, we are rewarded with diffused unaccountably.

An unholy alliance between public equity schemes and enforcement governance, chokes out the upstarts. Once capital markets were based upon sound reasons - raising capital for productive ventures. Today exchanges often promote shams, where new IPO’s are more interested in “pump and dump” gains, than producing real products or valuable services. Real competition is seldom the objective for their corporate boards, just next quarters results, often massaged with creative accounting.

The way to look at this degeneration is to admit what it is - The “House of Morgan” has become the realm of mendacity. The machinery of illusion is found in the techniques of short selling, arbitrage and derivatives. The practices of futures, options, forward and swap contracts all have to do with manipulation. Even cross-collateralization, subordination and substitute surety bonds have an inhibiting effect on the task of raising capital for the potential competitor.

Big Business thrives on access to new money. Wall Street now exists to create imaginary fantasies that are just fleeting mirages. Technical analysis and momentum trading are based upon a disconnect from fundamental performance or business reality.

By being the gatekeeper, gratuity provider and protector for the anointed; the potential for serious and innovative competition is gravely reduced. Add to this equation the agent of extortion; namely, government and all their regulatory agencies.

Is this the formula for a Free Market? Hardly, but this is the substance that commerce now runs on, full throttle. Like a drug addict, those who consider themselves to be investors are really just gamblers in a casino where fees are the only warranty. The odds are all stacked for the few at the top, who are willing to pay off the croupier for entry into a Fibonacci betting system. Here the sign reads - only Ponzi’s need apply!

Commerce, for it to become good business requires it to be responsible to the customer. Monopolies by their nature are anti competitive. The model for success is to slash and burn to become an industry leader, and marginalize any remaining firms that remain in the same field. We are told that improved efficiency will bring better service at lower prices. Economies of scale promises inventive advancements - progress is our most important product . . .  Has that pledge been fulfilled?

The undeniable record of Big Business is one of domination over the economy for the enrichment of elites. Independent businessmen seek convergence with customers, while rotating boards and corporate executives want docile and compliant consumers. Free Enterprise exists only when the barriers of exclusion are lowered and the inspiration of the creative is encouraged. The model of the corporate economy has the current intent of regimentation for society, through the regulation of commercial markets. Only through opening the flow in the brilliancy of individual initiative, and the acceptance that profits for the bold risk taker is good - will we restore economic health to a sick society.

Satan lives
 in George Soros

The fiction which is interdependency has a prolocutor in the congregation of Moloch. His name is George Soros. No other single person represents the symbol and the substance of Globalism more than this Hungarian-born descendant of Shylock.  He is the embodiment of the Merchant from Venice. His public reputation as an astute currency speculator is generous, while his skills as a manipulator and procurer of pain and suffering is shrouded in the footnotes of the financial journals. Claiming to be a philanthropist, his record is literally one of being a patron for indentured enslavement.

His assault on Sterling caused the British empire to shutter. The Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad blamed the American billionaire for nearly ruining Malaysia's economy with massive currency speculation. And Hard-core Russian nationalists decried as "meddling" his funding of progressive newspapers and institutions in post-Soviet Russia. But his incontrovertible talent does not rest in amassing financial fortunes, it lies in his social agenda.

While it is reported widely that Soros funded groups support increased government spending, tax increases, opposes the death penalty and President Bush’s judicial nominees; it has a far more sinister scheme. In report by Neil Hrab - George Soros’ Social Agenda for America - drug legalization, euthanasia, immigration entitlements and feminism are examined. Mr Hrab point out that in the book Open Society: Reforming Global Capitalism, Soros wrote that he is: "rather leery of self-appointment, self righteous" international NGO's. From his own site Soros proudly claims that his foundations are dedicated to building and maintaining the infrastructure and institutions of an open society. They work closely with OSI to develop and implement a range of programs focusing on civil society, education, media, public health, and human rights as well as social, legal, and economic reform. In recent years, OSI and the Soros foundations network have spent more than $400 million annually to support projects in these and other focus areas.

Double standards for an advocate of a permissive, yet regimented globe? If you think he is a friend of humanity, beware of his public attempt to influence his tribe, by insulting their benefactors. Before the Jewish Funders Network, he recently made these remarks: "There is a resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe. The policies of the Bush administration and the Sharon administration contribute to that," Soros said. "It´s not specifically anti-Semitism, but it does manifest itself in anti-Semitism as well. I´m critical of those policies." The inevitable outcry from the usual suspects, just illustrates the orchestrated nature of the Soros effort to rationalize his own social agenda, while deflecting criticism back to his ancestral blood line. Let the Zionist defend their fears, Soros has another George to defeat . . .

Since President George is busy consummating the relationship with Ariel, Soros must lump both together in order to attack the Bush administration. If it is the life's mission of Soros to slay the dragon, why is he so bashful? "It would be too immodest for a private person to set himself up against the president," he said. "But it is, in fact" – he chuckled – "the Soros Doctrine".

The Scotsman reports: "Mr Soros invited Democratic strategists to his house in Southampton, including John Podesta, Jeremy Rosner, Bob Boorstin and Carl Pope. They discussed the coming election. Mr Soros took aside Steve Rosenthal and Ellen Malcolm, the CEO and president of America Coming Together (ACT), who were proposing to mobilise voters in 17 battleground states. Mr Soros told them he would give them $10 million.

The next morning, his friend Peter Lewis, the chairman of the Progressive Corp, had pledged $10 million to ACT. Rob Glaser, the founder and CEO of RealNetworks, promised $2 million. Rob McKay, president of the McKay Family Foundation, gave $1 million and benefactors Lewis and Dorothy Cullman committed $500,000.

Mr Soros also promised up to $3 million to Podesta’s new think tank, the Centre for American Progress."

One need not be a Bush lackey to recognize that Soros is less fearful of Dubya and more motivated to enact his vision for the world. The dilemma that real conservatives have is distinguishing a truthful assessment of Bush and Sharon policies, while recognizing that the alternatives from a radical globalist like Soros are equally distorted. If Soros is correct when he says a “supremacist ideology” guides the White House, what would you call the practices of the archfiend of Free Enterprise? The Soros deception would make Shylock proud. However, where is Antonio?

Shylock: Antonio is a good man.

Bassanio: Have you heard any imputation to the contrary?

Shylock: Ho no, no, no, no: my meaning in saying he is a good man, is to have you understand that he is sufficient. - The Merchant of Venice [1.3.10-15]

Certainly George Bush has demonstrated his lack of sufficiency. No substitute is on the horizon, only alternatives from the likes of a Soros.

So when the billionaire financier said: “he, too, bears some responsibility for the new anti-Semitism, citing last months speech by Malaysia´s outgoing prime minister, Mahathir Mohammad, who said, "Jews rule the world by proxy"; why should anyone empathize or embrace Soros’ culpability? As is the normal practice, it’s not about anti-Semitism! Mahathir Mohammad was just stating the truth . . . The Soros duplicity is marked with the same betrayal as the framing of the eternal political conflict. The financial desolation that Soros leaves in the wake of his deceitful transactions is the proof. Ignoring this reality does not make it disappear.

Soros wants to drug you so you can’t think, terminate you when you can no longer pay tribute, force you to intermingle with alien invaders and emasculate you to an unnatural equality. If that isn’t the plan of the devil, what else would you call it?

Whoever claims that economic competition represents 'survival of the fittest' in the sense of the law of the jungle, provides the clearest possible evidence of his lack of knowledge of economics.
