Why Socialism Is Unethical

Most people don’t understand why socialism is bad. You may think that’s crazy, because perhaps you know the difference, but the reality is that socialism sounds pretty good when you’re in college, and you get good grades for merely mimicking and repeating what the professors telling you. I find it rather unfortunate that our colleges and universities are subsidized by tax dollars, and yet they are being used for indoctrination and brainwashing into the belief that socialism is better than capitalism. It’s not. And let me explain why.

With capitalism if you want more, you have to work for it, and when you work for it you provide labor, or goods and services to the marketplace so someone else can get what they want. With socialism, you demand that you get something, something you didn’t work for, and you demand that someone else pays for it. Really, that is stealing, but it doesn’t seem like it’s stealing because the government is taxing another group of people and taking that money, spending a little bit (theory, in reality they spend a lot) in administration, and giving you the difference.

Because you are one level removed from the situation, it doesn’t feel like stealing, but it actually is. Let me put it this way if we raise the taxes on the people next door you by $699 per year, and the government gave you a $699 iPad which the people next door didn’t get, then in a way they’d be paying for your iPad because the government stole the money from them to give you something. Do you see that?

Socialism is also unethical because it goes against what we consider to be human rights, and also what we consider to be our rights as Americans, namely; freedom, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. If the government controls every aspect of your life as if you were a teenager, just as your parents perhaps tried to do, then you can understand why people call the rise of socialism; a nanny state. Governments like socialism because it’s easier to control the people.

But there are two other items I’d like you to consider when it comes to socialism, as it;

Destroys the Individual for the Whole
Curbs Innovation Except Where the Organism Takes It

Why don’t you think about those two items, and consider what I’ve said previously in this article, and I think it will be readily apparent how true it really is that socialism is unethical. If you don’t believe it, look around at what’s happening, and consider where we are going with all this. Not only is it un-American, it’s not right for our future, and the United States of America need not become another Greek tragedy. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.…

The Shocking State of American Politics

Throughout my life, and possibly the same for most Australians, there have been only a couple of Presidents of the USA that have had low range respect from this country. The current one, however, is without any form of regard as most are laughing at the antics and the shocking state of American politics. This is obviously also the case in other nations. The big question is when and how will things change?

While it’s probably not ethical for an outsider to speak of it perhaps it is time someone said something. The issue is serious enough to be of global concern and one that flies in the face of security for the free world. Does this sound over the top? Then think about it in the light of the lies that are constant from his mouth and that is causing a great deal of confusion for his staff. How can anyone believe him or support his office.

He has become an object of comedy on at least one local TV show that is watched by a large audience. Plus he is the subject of ridicule by almost all who speak of him.

While politics is renowned as a ‘dirty’ business by most Australians (because of the underhanded deals and methods of persuasion used) no one has ever been laughed out of office. It comes as no shock, therefore, to hear an American journalist describe Trump as a ‘dead duck’ president because he has not been able to get a single thing done in six months.

Well, to clarify that he has not done anything he said he would do. He has sacked a few people, rubbed some leaders the wrong way, verbally abused Muslims and anyone he has a grudge against, and been snubbed at the G20 meeting held recently in Germany.

Australians love giving people a fair go and letting them get on with things. We like people who give others a fair go and that is not what is happening from this administration. While the politics in the USA has taken a dive there are some bright spots. The one where Senator McCain voted against dumping Obama Care has to be one of them. The appointment of the Grand Jury to look into Trump’s affairs is another. Lets hope they straight things out.…

Philippine Independence Day – Facts You Should Know About the Philippine Independence Day

It was yesterday when it brought to my attention about Philippine Independence Day. I was curious about where it started and who was behind this historical event. Here is what I found…  

The most momentous achievement of Aguinaldo’s Dictatorial Government was the proclamation of Philippine Independence in Kawit, Cavite, on June 12, 1898.  

Apolinario Mabini’s opposition  

General Emilio Aguinaldo thought that it was necessary to declare the independence of the Philippines with a government in operation. Aguinaldo believed that doing this would inspire the people to fight more eagerly against the Spaniards and he also thought that it will lead the foreign countries to recognize the independence of the country. Apolinario Mabini, who was Aguinaldo’s unofficial adviser at that time, objected. He based his opposition on the fact that it was more imperative to reorganize the government to convince the foreign powers of the competence and stability of the new government than to proclaim Philippine independence at such an early stage. Aguinaldo, on the other hand, stood his ground and won.  

Presidential Proclamation No. 28  

The United States recognized Philippines independence on July 4, 1946. But President Diosdado Macapagal, the Grandfather of the current president of the Philippines, signed the Presidential Proclamation No. 28, changing the official celebration to June 12, 1898. That was the day that Emilio Aguinaldo declared the Philippine’s independence from Spain.  

June 12, 1898: The Proclamation of Philippine Independence  

Independence was proclaimed on June 12, 1898 in Cavite at the ancestral home of General Emilio Aguinaldo. The event saw the unfolding of the National Flag of the Philippines and the performance of the Marcha Filipina Magdalo (Lupang Hinirang), as the Nation’s National Anthem. The Act of the Declaration of Independence was written by Ambrosio Rianzares Bautista, who also read it. The Philippine Declaration was signed by ninety-eight persons, one of them was an American army officer, L.M. Johnson, Colonel of Artillery, who witnessed the proclamation.  

The Philippine flag was made in Hong Kong by Mrs. Marcela Agoncillo, Lorenza Agoncillo and Delfina Herboza. The Philippine National Anthem was composed by Julian Felipe and played by the San Francisco de Malabon Marching band.   This year is the 111th Philippine Independence Day celebration. It is being celebrated with traditional flag raising ceremony and occasional programs with lots of Philippine flags that can be seen everywhere from home to schools, government and private establishments and also in public places and transportation.
