In 1913 the federal government took control of the nation's money supply by establishing the Federal Reserve System. Misguided policies of easy money in the 1920s and very tight money in the 1930s resulted in the Great Depression. To deal with the depression, President Roosevelt wanted to expand the powers of the federal government, but was prevented from doing so by the Supreme Court. New Deal programs, including much of the National Industrial Recovery Act, were held to be unconstitutional by votes of 5 to 4. In 1937 FDR appointed to the Supreme Court a former Ku Klux Klan member and an avid supporter of FDR's New Deal policies named Hugo Black. After Black's appointment the balance of power on the court tipped and the court began to uphold laws giving the federal government powers beyond those enumerated in the Constitution. The Supreme Court held that Congress' power to regulate interstate commerce gave Congress the power to pass laws in any area that affected commerce, however slightly or remotely. For example, a farmer planted more wheat than allowed by federal law. When the farmer appeared in court, he was able to show that he and his family consumed all of the wheat grown on the farm. None was sold in commerce. "It doesn't matter", the Supreme Court ruled. If the farmer had planted less he may have been forced to buy some elsewhere, thereby lowering the wheat supply and raising the price of wheat as the government wished. Since the farmer's actions affected commerce, no matter how remotely, he was subject to the federal commerce power. As another example, if you own a restaurant and the tables or plates or stoves or food or anything in the restaurant comes from another state, your restaurant is in interstate commerce and subject to any controls the federal government may wish to impose. The scope of the commerce clause has been expanded far beyond what the founding fathers intended. Congress can now pass laws regulating virtually any economic activity, and the Supreme Court will uphold the law's constitutionality as a matter of course. The Supreme Court no longer enforces the doctrine of enumerated powers or the Tenth Amendment guarantee that federal powers are limited to those specific powers listed in the Constitution. In 1937 the United States ceased to be a constitutional republic, characterized by limited, enumerated powers, and became a democracy subject to majority rule. If travelers from another star do visit us one day, will they find it hard to understand human psychology? Will they wonder that the freest and most productive country in Earth's history would abandon the principles of liberty and capitalism that had served it so well? Will they wonder that the people of Earth could be so blind to the lessons of history that they would drift down the path of democracy and socialism when the benefits of liberty and capitalism had been so spectacularly demonstrated? Or will these alien visitors find a prosperous and peaceful world that awakened to the principles of liberty, individual rights and limited government, and adopted policies of freedom and capitalism throughout the world?

The main idea of the United States Constitution, which was ratified in 1788, was to limit the powers of the federal government. For the first time in history the powers of a national government were limited to a list of enumerated powers. Article I, section 8 lists these powers, for example, to coin money, to issue patents, to declare war, to support an army and navy. A Bill of Rights was added at the insistence of those who feared federal power. The Bill of Rights was considered an iron-clad guarantee that the federal government would not expand its powers beyond those listed in article I, section 8. The Tenth Amendment in the Bill of Rights provides that any powers not specifically delegated to the United States are reserved to the states and to the people. Limiting the powers of the federal government to a list of specific powers is known as the Doctrine of Enumerated Powers. By limiting the powers of the federal and state governments, the founding fathers created the freest and most capitalistic country to ever exist in the world. Many Americans do not realize what a radical idea the Constitution was. For the first time in history a government was established which guaranteed property rights and which limited the powers of the government to specific, enumerated powers. The economic results of creating the world's freest country would transform the world. Inventions in the fields of agriculture, manufacturing, transportation, communication and medicine would increase the wealth and productivity of the world more than all the inventions in prior history. For 150 years, from 1788 to 1937, the Supreme Court limited the powers of the federal government to those enumerated in the Constitution. The Tenth Amendment was enforced as written and as originally intended, reserving all powers not specifically granted to the federal government to the states and to the people.

Recall that democracy means voting or majority rule. It is a way of selecting leaders, an alternative to hereditary monarchy or military takeover. In a democracy the majority may elect capitalistic leaders such as Thomas Jefferson or Margaret Thatcher, or the majority may elect socialistic leaders such as Adolf Hitler or Serbia's Slobodan Milosevic. Democracy is too often 3 hungry wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner. Unless there are constitutional limits on the power of government which the courts enforce, democracy is often the straightest road to socialism. Democracy has been a primary goal of American foreign policy since World War I. In 1916 President Woodrow Wilson urged America to enter World War I 'to make the world safe for democracy'. In 1940 President Franklin Roosevelt urged America to 'be the great arsenal of democracy'. In 2000, President Clinton mistakenly praised the founding fathers for creating a 'representative democracy'. President Bush has stated that the establishment of democracy in the Middle East is the purpose of the war in Iraq. The founding fathers did not share the opinions of Wilson, Roosevelt, Clinton and Bush about the desirability of democracy. They feared mob rule. They limited the powers of the government and allowed only wealthy landowners who paid taxes to vote. The word 'democracy' does not appear in the Constitution, the Bill of Rights or the Declaration of Independence. The new government was considered a constitutional republic, not a democracy. Samuel Adams, a leader of the American Revolution, wrote: 'Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There was never a democracy that did not commit suicide.'" Alexander Hamilton of New York said: 'We are a republican government. Real liberty is never found.....in the extremes of democracy....The ancient democracies in which the people themselves deliberated never possessed one good feature of government. Their very character was tyranny.....' James Madison, considered the primary author of the Constitution, wrote in The Federalist: '.....democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security, or the rights of property.....' The founding fathers believed that property rights would not endure if voters could vote themselves benefits from the public treasury. Note the views of leading socialists on the merits of democracy. Karl Marx, author of The Communist Manifesto, wrote: 'Democracy is a form of government that cannot long survive, for as soon as the people learn that they have a voice in the fiscal policies of the government, they will move to vote for themselves all the money in the treasury and bankrupt the nation....The first step in the revolution of the working class is to raise the proletariat to the position of ruling class, to win the battle of democracy.' According to Mao Tse-tung, the 'democratic revolution is the necessary preparation for the socialist revolution, and the socialist revolution is the inevitable sequel to the democratic revolution.' Mikhail Gorbachev, former Soviet leader, wrote in 1987: 'According to Lenin, socialism and democracy are indivisible....We want more socialism and, therefore, more democracy.' Individual rights and limited government are the cause of wealth and prosperity, not democracy or majority rule. It makes no sense for the United States to fight wars around the world for the principle of majority rule. We should advocate liberty and limited government. We should make the United States a shining example of a country that protects individual rights rather than trying to force foreign countries to adopt democracy at the point of a gun. The purpose of our foreign policy should be to protect the United States from attack not to force other countries to adopt democracy, a system that socialists advocate and our founding fathers considered dangerous and tyrannical.

The 10 most capitalistic countries in the world are Hong Kong, #1, Singapore, #2, New Zealand, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States, tied for #3, Australia and Canada, tied for #7, and Ireland and Luxembourg, tied for #9. The 3 functions of government in a free, capitalistic country are to provide a military force to protect the country from foreign attack, to provide police to protect citizens from assault, arson, fraud, theft, homicide and other common law crimes and to provide courts to administer criminal laws, protect property rights, enforce contracts and settle disputes. A small national sales tax, especially on vices such as liquor, cigarettes and gambling, is used in place of a complex and intrusive income tax. In a free society, all businesses, including schools and post offices, are privately owned. Welfare is handled by churches and private citizens to the maximum extent workable and practical. Capitalism is based on Thomas Jefferson's belief that the government which governs least governs best. Jefferson wrote that the role of government was to "restrain men from injuring one another" and "leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement". Jefferson would have agreed with Ronald Reagan that government is not the solution to the problem, government is the problem. The founding fathers guaranteed political rights to all Americans--the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, the right to own property and to trade freely, the freedoms of religion, speech, press and assembly. Notice that these political rights do not involve the use of force against other members of society. President Franklin Roosevelt in 1941, in his State of the Union address to Congress, introduced what he called a second bill of rights, a so-called economic bill of rights, including--the right to a remunerative job, the right to earn enough to provide adequate food, clothing and recreation, the right to a decent home, the right to adequate medical care, the right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment, the right to a good education. Ayn (rhymes with mine) Rand in her book, Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal, explains the fallacy of so-called economic rights and why capitalism is the only just and moral economic system. Education, jobs, homes and health care do not exist in a state of nature. They require human effort and creativity to produce. When someone asserts a right to an education, a job or to health care, the question is: "At whose expense?" Ayn Rand writes: "If some men are entitled by right to the products of the work of others, it means that those others are deprived of rights and condemned to slave labor."..."There can be no such thing as 'the right to enslave'."

If socialism is so bad, why is it so widely advocated and adopted? There are many reasons. First, in democratic countries politicians promise education, health care, jobs, housing, mass transit and many other benefits to be paid by taxes on the wealthy. Second, ironically business people are among the worst enemies of capitalism. Almost every business--doctors, lawyers, barbers, farmers, realtors, taxi drivers, car and steel manufacturers--form lobbying groups that petition state and federal legislators to reduce competition. The American Medical Association, for example, has been hugely successful at increasing doctors' incomes and the cost of health care by restricting competition with licensing laws and excessive and largely irrelevant educational requirements. As long as business people can create barriers to competitive entry to their business or profession, through laws such as tariffs, licensing, educational requirements and design requirements, the scope of government will continue to expand. Third, it is the nature of government bureaucracies to grow and expand and to resist fiercely any attempt to restrict their growth. As James Madison said, governments turn "every contingency into a resource for accumulating force in the government." Once established government programs are very hard to abolish.

Poverty is not the only consequence of socialist policies. Socialists in absolute control of the machinery of government are in a unique position to commit mass murder. The 1900s witnessed death on a massive scale from genocide committed by the three leading socialists of the twentieth century: National Socialist Adolf Hitler, communist Mao Tse-tung and communist Joseph Stalin. Adolf Hitler According to the Encyclopedia of Genocide Adolf Hitler is the third greatest mass murderer in world history, responsible for the deaths of 21 million unarmed civilians. Hitler, as head of the National Socialist German Workers' Party, promised voters the right to an education, to a job, to health care and to housing. In 1927 he said, "We are socialists. We are enemies of today's capitalistic economic system." Hitler was elected to the Reichstag in 1932 and appointed Chancellor of Germany by President Paul von Hindenburg in 1933. Hitler instituted policies of racial classification and affirmative action to assist Aryans and penalize Jews who were considered an unfairly advantaged group. Hitler's invasion of Poland in 1939 led to the start of World War II. As new territory came under German control Jews and other civilians were rounded up and killed in mass shootings or deported to concentration camps and killed in gas chambers. National Socialist Germany provides the clearest example of the plight of minorities under socialism. A persecuted minority has no chance of success where the government controls education, employment, business licensure, housing, travel and all aspects of life. Security exists only in countries which guarantee civil liberties and property rights, and which never reward or penalize citizens based on racial classifications. Mao Tse-tung In second place on the list of most prolific mass murderers is Mao Tse-tung who is responsible for the intentional killing of 38 million unarmed civilians. Mao gained control of mainland China in 1949 and embarked on an ambitious program to create a dictatorship of the proletariat. Millions of peasants, landlords, scientists and anyone not considered part of the working class were executed by the communists. Tibet was attacked and conquered by China in 1951. The Tibetan language and the Buddhist religion were outlawed and Buddhist monasteries destroyed. Agriculture was collectivized causing massive starvation and the emigration of many of Tibet's people to India. Joseph Stalin Joseph Stalin of the Soviet Union is the world's most prolific mass murderer, with a record of 62 million intentional deaths of unarmed civilians. After Lenin died in 1924 Stalin murdered his opponents until he was the absolute ruler of the Soviet Union. In 1928 Stalin abolished private farms and ordered farmers to turn over their tools and animals to collective farms. Millions of farmers who resisted were killed. Landlords, aristocrats, writers, teachers and members of the clergy were executed. Ukrainians, Germans, Poles, Hungarians, Romanians, Chechens, Tartars and many other ethnic groups were killed or deported to slave labor in Siberia. Only governments and criminals use force to achieve objectives. Law-abiding citizens may only use persuasion and voluntary exchange. When a government has great power which is concentrated in a single individual, as is often the case in socialist and communist countries, genocide becomes possible. It is no coincidence that the 3 great socialists of the 1900s--Stalin, Mao and Hitler--are the 3 leading mass murderers in world history.

Socialists accuse capitalism of being a heartless, dog-eat-dog system that lacks compassion for the poor. The truth is that dogs do not eat dogs and that the poor, including those who cannot work because of old age or disability, are much better off in a land of capitalist plenty than in a land of socialist scarcity. Capitalism is the only system capable of creating massive amounts of food, medicine and other wealth. When the engine of production is destroyed by taxes, tariffs, regulations and licenses everyone suffers but especially the poor. When you see pictures of starving children from around the world, when you see people living in squalor and poverty with inadequate housing and clothing, remember that it is the proponents of big government who advocate an economic system which is a proven failure at producing the necessities of life. The historical record--the inventions of capitalism, the direction of immigration, the catastrophe of collectivized agriculture in Cuba, China and the Soviet Union, the failure of socialism wherever it has been tried in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas--make clear that socialism is an economic destroyer and a deadly threat, especially to a country's poor.

The Economic Freedom of the World reports is a 20 year old project supported by Nobel-prize winning economist Milton Friedman and the Fraser and Cato Institutes. The annual report measures economic freedom in 123 countries of the world. 38 objective measures of economic freedom are used including: the size of government relative to the economy, protections for private property rights, the soundness of the country's money, the extent of trade regulation and tariffs, the level of taxation and the extent of regulation of business, labor and capital markets. Each of the 123 countries is ranked from most to least economically free. There is not enough information to include some countries, including Cuba and North Korea. The complete report can be seen at www.freetheworld****. The report shows a direct link between economic freedom and a country's wealth. Countries that adopt capitalism, that is, countries with sound money, private property, free trade, low taxes and less regulation of business tend to be very wealthy. Countries that adopt socialism, whether of the socialist, fascist or communist variety, that is countries with governments that own or control the farms, factories, shops and banks, tend to be very poor. If you are lucky enough to live in one of the 25 most capitalistic countries, your average annual income is over $26,000, you can expect to live almost to the age of 76 and there is less than a one percent chance that your child will die in infancy. If you are unlucky enough to live in one of the 25 most socialistic countries, your average annual income of about $2800, you can expect to die before you are 54 years old and your child has over an 8% chance of dying in infancy. The Economic Freedom of the World report found that the poorest 10% in the 25 most capitalistic nations had incomes of about $6900 per year. The poorest 10% in the 25 most socialistic nations had incomes of about $800 per year. Good luck feeding your family on $800 per year. And notice this amazing fact: The poorest 10% in the capitalist countries had incomes over 240% greater than the average incomes in the socialist countries.

The Soviet Union lasted from 1917 to the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. During this time it enforced policies of collectivized agriculture that caused famine, resulting in the death of millions of people throughout the Soviet Union. While most farm land was confiscated to form huge state-owned farms, privately owned garden plots were permitted. These garden plots made up less than 1% of the Soviet Union's cultivated land, but they produced an incredible 27% of the total Soviet farm output. The privately-owned garden plots produced food out of all proportion to their size and saved millions of Soviet citizens from death by starvation. Meanwhile, the massive collectivized farms reported crop failures year after year in spite of brutal and deadly methods employed by the government to increase production. When Mao Tse-tung's Communists came to power in China, they used Soviet advisers to establish policies for the collectivization of Chinese agriculture. As in the Soviet Union, tens of millions died of starvation as a result of abolishing private farms. Cuba provides a more recent example of the consequences of a socialist economy. In 1993 Cuba reported an epidemic of 34,000 Cubans who had gone blind. The epidemic was traced to vitamin deficiencies and malnutrition caused by the failure of Cuba's state-operated farms and economy. Castro meanwhile has promised to adhere faithfully to the policies of socialism, no matter the cost to the people of Cuba.

What exactly are socialism, capitalism and democracy? Socialism, whether of the socialist, fascist or communist variety, is government ownership or control of business, whereas capitalism is private ownership and control of business. Democracy simply means voting or majority rule. Socialism is characterized by weak or non-existent property right, high tariffs, high taxes and heavy regulation of business. Capitalism is characterized by strong property rights, free trade, low taxes and light regulation of business. Socialism and capitalism are opposites. All the countries of the world fall along a continuum from most socialist with unlimited governmental control of the economy to most capitalist with less governmental control of the economy.

*******www.benevic****/ This video discusses life expectancy, longevity, diet-related diseases (such as heart attack, certain cancers, stroke and diabetes) and some advantages of a low-cost diet plan to remain healthy. Learn more about the Bene Victus diet (for sale for $17) at *******www.benevic****/. Transcript: In the Stone Age which lasted until about 3000 B.C. life expectancy at birth was about 20 years. Life expectancy increased to 28 years in the days of ancient Rome and to 45 years in the United States in the early 1900s. Today life expectancy at birth is almost 90 years in the Principality of Monaco and some futurists believe that longevity will increase dramatically in the years ahead. In 1900 the leading causes of U.S. deaths were pneumonia, tuberculosis, diarrhea and other infectious diseases caused by bacteria and viruses. Today the leading causes of death in the United States are heart attacks, cancer, respiratory diseases, strokes and other chronic, degenerative diseases. The Bene Victus diet (from the Latin bene victus meaning healthy food) offers a low-cost diet plan for people trying to achieve or maintain a low, healthy weight. With obesity and diabetes reaching epidemic proportions and with the possibility of longevity breakthroughs on the horizon, there has never been a better time to adopt a healthy, low-calorie, high-nutrient diet.

Consider the inventions of the last 200 years: electricity, airplanes, cars, telephones, agricultural and medical technology, computers, amazing advances in housing, communication and transportation. Throughout history the vast majority of workers have been farmers. Farmers until recent times were unable to produce enough food to keep their families alive and a large proportion of children never reached adulthood. The invention of the mechanical reaper and other farm machinery has enabled an average United States farmer to feed over 125 people. The ancient enemies of mankind, famine and early death, have been almost completely eliminated in countries that have adopted capitalism. As capitalism has been adding to mankind's wealth and freeing humanity from the threat of starvation, capitalists and the capitalistic system have been relentlessly vilified by academics, journalists and politicians. Instead of gratitude and appreciation for the blessings of capitalism, the system is hysterically and irrationally condemned and its achievements ignored or attributed to historical chance. Instead of advocating capitalism and the free enterprise system, the United States proclaims to the world that democracy is our great political achievement and the principle for which we are willing to go to war.

Notice that socialist countries need to build walls to keep their people from leaving. From 1949 to 1961 over half of all East Germans fled to West Germany. To prevent the remainder of its population from leaving, socialist East Germany built a massive concrete and barb wire wall in 1961. The Berlin Wall was in a sense the Soviet Union's monument to capitalism. Observe that throughout the world the direction of immigration is from socialist countries to capitalist countries--from socialist Mexico to capitalist USA, from communist North Korea to capitalist South Korea, from communist China to capitalist Hong Kong.

Socialists condemn the factory system of the Industrial revolution for lowering the living standards of workers and for exploiting workers, especially women and children, by making them work long hours in unsafe conditions for starvation wages. Writers such as Charles Dickens paint a bleak picture of the factory system and an idyllic picture of the home industries that preceded it. A poem compares a child's life of song and laughter before a life of misery toiling at the chattering looms of a textile factory. Death rates among children show that this idyllic picture of pre-factory life is totally false. From 1730 to 1750, before the factory system was widely established, over 74% of the children in London died before the age of 5. From 1810 to 1830, after the factory system was established, less than 32% of children died before the age of 5. The population of England doubled from 1750 to 1820, from 6 million to 12 million, an amazing and unprecedented increase caused primarily by the survival of many more children. Remember that unlike the concentration camps of Stalin, Mao and Hitler, workers were not forced to work in factories. To quote Professor Ludwig von Mises writing in his book, Human Action: "The factory owners did not have the power to compel anybody to take a factory job. They could only hire people who were ready to work for the wages offered to them. Low as these wage rates were, they were nonetheless much more than these paupers could earn in any other field open to them. It is a distortion of facts to say that the factories carried off the housewives from the nurseries and the kitchen and the children from their play. These women had nothing to cook with and to feed their children. These children were destitute and starving. Their only refuge was the factory. It saved them, in the strictest sense of the term, from death by starvation."

In 1607 about 100 British settlers landed at Jamestown, Virginia to begin life in a new world. A few years later in 1620 about 100 Puritans landed in Massachusetts. In each case the settlers adopted a policy of communal agriculture in which everyone would share in the labor and the resulting food. In spite of fertile soil and abundant game famine and starvation was the result for both communities. In the case of Jamestown 2/3 of the original settlers died within 3 years. Both communities soon realized that communal farming was not working and decided to divide the land into separate parcels. In each case the results were almost miraculous. With privately owned land the settlers were soon able to produce enough to feed their families and to trade with the Indians for fur, game and fish. Professor DiLorenzo's book, How Capitalism Saved America, The Untold History of Our Country, from the Pilgrims to the Present, documents the importance of private property to the survival of the early colonists.

*******www.benevic****/ This video discusses food prices and the daily food cost of the Bene Victus diet vs. the USDA's moderate cost diet. The Bene Victus diet includes 5 spreadsheets which compare food costs at the four leading supermarket chains for the foods on the Bene Victus diet. Learn more about the Bene Victus diet (for sale for $17) at *******www.benevic****/. Transcript: One goal of the Bene Victus diet (from the Latin bene victus meaning healthy food) is to recommend foods that are affordable. Supermarkets offer a great many foods that are high in calories and low in nutrition and that contribute to the epidemic of obesity, diabetes and chronic disease. However, supermarkets also offer an amazing variety of fresh and frozen whole foods that are high in nutrients and low in calories and that are available at low prices compared to food prices in many parts the world. The Bene Victus diet could save you more than its $17 cost in the first week that the diet is followed and every week thereafter. According to the USDA, the cost of a nutritious diet eaten at home based on their moderate-cost plan for a household of 2 consisting of a male and female between the ages of 19 and 50 is $9.62 per person per day. The daily cost of the Bene Victus diet in late 2011 is about $7.00, a daily savings of $2.62 and a weekly savings of over $18. The foods are purchased from the four largest supermarket chains in the United States: Wal-Mart, Kroger (which goes by different names in different regions), Costco and Safeway. The Bene Victus diet offers a convenient program of high-nutrient whole foods that can be varied with many alternate fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes and nuts. By picking the right foods when you shop, you can enjoy a diet that is healthy, delicious and satisfying, very quick and easy to prepare and also affordable.

*******www.benevic****/ This video discusses a diet plan that offers delicious, satisfying, healthy meals but meals that are also quick, easy and convenient for people who want to spend little time in the kitchen preparing meals and cleaning up. Learn more about the Bene Victus diet (for sale for $17) at *******www.benevic****/. Transcript: Jack LaLanne once said: "If it tastes good, spit it out." The Bene Victus diet (from the Latin bene victus meaning healthy food) doesn't follow this philosophy. Instead it recommends foods that are delicious and satisfying so that the diet can be followed on a regular, long-term basis. The diet is made up primarily of low-calorie, low-density whole foods so you need to eat a relatively large volume of food to consume the necessary calories. The reason that the modern diet of refined, factory-made foods so often leads to weight problems is that the foods are high-calorie, energy-dense foods that supply unneeded calories without satisfying hunger. Another goal of the Bene Victus diet is to recommend meals that are quick and easy to shop for, to prepare and to clean up so that it is easy for people with no interest in cooking to follow the program. This is the ideal diet plan for those, whether single, couples or families, who want to spend very little time in the kitchen preparing meals and cleaning up after meals. The appliances that are useful are a microwave (to heat most meals), a pressure cooker (for cooking rice, lentils or beans about once a week), a hot air popcorn popper that requires no oil, and a digital scale (if you want to keep track of what you're eating using the FitDay software). The meals take only a few minutes to assemble and heat up. Frozen vegetables make preparation of nutrient rich foods easy and with very little waste. Only a bowl and spoon are needed for most meals allowing for quick and easy cleanup. The Bene Victus diet at $17 offers a simple, practical and specific program of high-nutrient whole foods that is healthy and inexpensive, delicious and satisfying, convenient and easy to follow on a long term basis when eating at home.
