Another Friday, another podcast by the Voice of Saruman. This week the ZMan’s talk was a condemnation of Free Market Capitalism or as he characterized it “Marketism.” Now, I’m far from an adherent to all of the ZMan’s opinions but I think it would benefit even the most strident libertarian to listen to this argument.
In my youth I was a pretty strong adherent to the idea that whatever I built was my own business and the government had no right to tell me how I could run it. But after witnessing the stalinist policies of Silicon Valley and their cronies in the rest of big business I’m perfectly willing to see the Department of Justice crush them if for no other reason than to pay them back for the damage they’ve done to regular people that ran afoul of their twitter mobs and sjw finks.
But I digress. Forget the ZMan’s other dissident right beliefs. Listen to his arguments and examples. He makes a whole lot of sense. Capitalism is not a religion it’s a tool. If it doesn’t serve the needs of the people then it’s a bad tool and needs to be fixed.
