TAC: Capitalist Tool


“Bernie Sanders. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Tucker Carlson. If one of those names on a list of examples of ascendant socialism strikes you as out of place, you may have missed weeks of debate on the Right over a reasonable comment made by the popular Fox News host.

“Market capitalism is not a religion. Market capitalism is a tool, like a staple gun or a toaster,” Carlson said. “Any economic system that weakens and destroys families isn’t worth having.” Does this observation make Tucker a socialist? Hardly. As is often the case, TAC founding editor Patrick J. Buchanan was more than a decade ahead of the curve.

“To me, the country comes before the economy; and the economy exists for the people,” Buchanan said in a 1998 speech to the Chicago Council on Foreign Relations. “I believe in free markets, but I do not worship them. In the proper hierarchy of things, it is the market that must be harnessed to work for man—and not the other way around.” …”

From my perspective:

– Political power
– Political correctness
– Free market capitalism
– Tax cuts
– The US Empire
– Absurd levels of military spending
– Absurd levels of income inequality
– Absurd cultural norms aka Clown World
– Foreign wars which make no sense
– Israel and AIPAC

– Jewish power and influence in general
– Millennials trapped in debt slavery to banks
– The deracinated and demoralized masses who used to be the American people
– Feminism
– “Judeo-Christianity”
– Have you ever read Ayn Rand?

I could continue, but that is how “mainstream conservatism” looks to people like me. Don’t even get me started on the nepotism and mediocrity. Diamond and Silk?

Note: I would rather read Aristotle, Luther, Hegel, Nietzsche, etc. I would also say we need Yang to restore economic independence to everyone so they don’t have to be a wage slave to a wealthy donor. Otherwise, “conservatism” will get more Charlie Kirks.

  1. Now we know why the jews hate Pat Buchanan. He was a decade More than a decade ahead of the curve? So how far ahead of the curve was National Socialism? What we’re talking about here, is common sense. There is no common sense in jew run CLOWN WORLD!

    The fundamental, bedrock position concerning National Socialist economics is this: the function of the economy under National-Socialism is to serve the economic needs of the people.

    National-Socialism rejects both international capitalism and Marxism as financial systems, and instead charts a third way between and beyond both of them.

    In is NOT the function of an NS economy to concentrate the wealth of the nation–and the political power that goes with it–in the hands of a small oligarchy of super-billionaires. It makes no difference if these plutocrats are Jewish or are Aryan renegades, who have no concern for their folk nor for anything else other than their fortunes. No one has the right to profit at the expense of our Race.

    On the other hand, it is NOT the function of the NS economy to encourage destructive class warfare. The right of the most-productive elements in society to benefit from the fruits of their labor must be defended, the right to private property must be guaranteed, and the engine of economic incentive must be harnessed for the good of the folk-community.

  2. Well stated, Dicarlo..I believe we are on the threshold of having our ideas and ideology on the table for open consideration. If common sense options are presented in an open, honest debate, the people are starving for it and would see its merit.
    People WANT to work and prosper, and GOOD people want their friends and neighbors to do well also. They also need enough leisure time to better their individual families’ lives as well…time to have a garden, take the family on a trip to a SAFE place, etc.
    We CAN have that if we are diligent and don’t get greedy and desperate…
    ..and are careful not to fall for some too-good-to-be-true, gimme-da-money scheme…
