“Of all tyrannies, tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive...better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. A robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep but those who torment us for our own good will never stop for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."
__C.S. Lewis

This is a very good quote.

I would much rather live in an extreme capitalist/free market economy than in a socialist or Marxist economy.

Life is risk. There is little to no risk in a socialist economy--there are too many safety nets. People grow from making mistakes, not from someone who has a safety net to catch them from falling every time they fall. The day I learned how to ride a bike, was the day I fell at least twice from my bike and skinned both of my knees. Pain is a necessary and harsh schoolmaster.

In the socialist/Marxist model, people put their faith in centralized government to solve their problems. In a capitalist/free market model, people should put their faith in God to solve their problems.

Marxism is slavery. Faith in God/freedom work very well in a capitalist/free market economy.

Faith in God? I think That is a necessity. But applying it in a controlled way? No! Cheers.
