T h i ss c e n a r i o , w h i c h could be termed Negative Capitalism, allowed a truly demonic s y s t e m o fm i s p l a c e d c o m passion to take hold. Its inequities of Negative Capitalism were o b v i o u san d , so , c o m m unism took hold in seve r a l pa r ts of the wor ld.I n A m e r i c a , a s low revolution of socialism has produced a mixed society. Gover n m e n t ,i n c o l l u s i o n w i th Negative Capitalists, created the current system of solving pro b l e m st h r o u g h g o v e r n ment intervention.

Most of the time, they do not really h a v e ac h o i c e . I n s t e a d , the leaders use the dubious “which” close. This is sales jargon: W h i c hw o u l d y o u r a t h er have on your new car--your initials printed in gold or in silver ? T h ep r e s u m p t i o n i s that you already want to buy the car. Similarly, the leaders take t h e m o r ei m p o r t a n t d e c i s ion out of your hands, knowing pe ople f e a r big de c ision. The c las s ic e x-am p le i s t h e i n c ome tax.

This is a classic example of a coali t i o n o fs o c i a l i s t s , s t a t i sts, and negative capitalists getting together to extort power from t h ep e o p l e . T h e m i xed economy gives confusing signals to the casual political onloo k e r, b u t“ c o n f u s e a n d c onquer” is the method used by this coalition.

The opposite is the truth. People either learn to d e a l w i t ho n e a n o t h e r f a i rly, or they perish natur a lly.

T h e s a m e p a rental attitude prevails in communism that has prevailed in every o t h e rs o ci a l sy st e m .

If wealth is redistr i b u t e dn at u r a l l y, e v o l ution is served. If, howe ve r, a ny f or m of f or c e or c ontr ol is inte r j e c te d in tot h i s p r o c e ss, t h e natural flow of evolution is slowe d down.

E ach system has the po tential to be as bad as the other. The subjug a t i o n o ft h e ci t i z e n t o t h e state seems to deter mine the de gr e e of da ma ge done to the na tu r a l e v o-l u t i o n a r y p r o c e ss.

A mixed economy, a more subtle form of controllism, is just a s i n f e s t e dwi t h g o v e r n m e nt intervention.

T h e o t h er side of the coin is that resistance or indifference to formation o f t h ep art y c o u l d m a k e it very expensive.M y a b i l i t y a n d commitment to start up such an unusual concept can also be a ma j o r f a c t o r.I wi ll a t t e m p t t o fund the beginning c omple te ly by myse lf , but tha t might not be e n o u g h .We w i l l p r o b a b ly need a pow er triangle to a c c umula te the sta r t up c a pita l.

As a real estate investor and developer, I am in a pos i t i o n t op l a c e r e a l e s t a t e holdings in the name of The International Capitalist Party.

Capitalism is based on a contract between two indi v i d u a l st h a t i s m u t u a l l y beneficial to both parties. The other two sides of the power tria n g l e w i l lb as ed o n t h i s p rinciple, as w ell.2 . M e m b e r s h i p , including individual unit trusts.

This method is safest and the most fair way o f r a i s i n gm o n e y f o r t h e party and still giving a r e a sona ble r e tur n to the me mbe r.We w i l l b u y a p artment houses free and clear of loans for maximum safety and th e n i s s u ev a r i a b l e n e t i n come trust deed certificates based on the amount the member con t r i b u t e s t ot h e p a r t y. T h i s way, no one can forec lose on the pr ope r ty, a nd the inc ome f r om th e in-v e s t m e n t w i l l b e paid out to the member proportionate to member ’s contribution . Wi t h af i f t e e n y e a r t r u st deed, the entire contribution will be returned at that time, prov i d e d t h ep r o p e r t y i s w o r th the original amount or more.
