Which do you prefer? Freedom, Higher risks and higher reward? No risk, less freedom, but a lower standard of living?
Socialism has made many promises it cannot keep. Capitalism promises nothing, but can generate much more wealth.
Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety. And to in my experience end up giving up liberty AND security.
What a load of bullshit. See, here in the US, sadly we have waaaaay too many freedom-fries folks who think they are Daniel Boom or some shit, but in reality they are just some variant of Beavis and Butthead.
Any argument they make, they drop the word "freedom" and voila, in their minds, that makes it valid. They don't even know what the fuck freedom is, or whether they truly have it. What comes out of their mouth are not reasons, but fucking slogans.
They go about their lives building these black-n-white, freedom-or-else as if the world operated in that way, because, according to their experience that's how it is (and one has to wonder what type of first-hand experience they have on the subject.)
