What must be realized is that the strait jacket of bureaucratic organization paralyzes the individual’s initiative, while within the capitalist market society an innovator still has a chance to succeed. The former makes for stagnation and preservation of inveterate methods, the latter makes for progress and improvement. Capitalism is progressive, socialism is not.
The champions of socialism call themselves progressives, but they recommend a system which is characterized by rigid observance of routine and by a resistance to every kind of improvement. They call themselves liberals, but they are intent upon abolishing liberty. They call themselves democrats, but they yearn for dictatorship. They call themselves revolutionaries, but they want to make the government omnipotent. They promise the blessings of the Garden of Eden, but they plan to transform the world into a gigantic post office. Every man but one a subordinate clerk in a bureau, what an alluring utopia! What a noble cause to fight for!
Against all this frenzy of agitation there is but one weapon available: reason. Just common sense is needed to prevent man from falling prey to illusory fantasies and empty catchwords.”
Ludwig von Mises’ 1944 book “Bureaucracy“
MP: Mises makes an important point that it’s capitalists who are the real progressives, not the socialists. Exhibit A: Venezuela.
Also, nur was wird die neue 'Währung' Aussehen? Ich bin immer neugierig. Eines ist sicher, es schadet nie, auch in greifbare "Metalle" wie Gold, Silber, Platin, etc. und ein paar Bier, Schnitzel, Brot und reines Trinkwasser investieren.

Hello Friends !
Next Door to my old house in S.E. Wisconsin -- in Union Grove, a very small town, that I really WISHED I's KEPT, was my neighbor who claimed to be a 'Christian,' who never, ever swung a paint brush on his house, that, IMHO, brought down the value of all the rest of us good, home owners who did take care of our properties ! I so regret letting my property go.... and at least I would have a place of my own right now, in a good, safe, low crime area, but still within a short drive to larger cities with good food and values/ friends/ relatives.
BUT ! Go figure that, perhaps the good Lord had something else in His mind, and if I would not have made a move 6 years ago, and not got hurt a few times, and not landed in a few hospitals and Rehab places --- I would NOT have witnessed and shared the Gospel and Salvation story to many, yes, many RN's, other nursing staff, doctors and people, to lead them to the Lord [by direction of the Holy Spirit, of course]. That's just my guess and assumption, at how God works, as I have many times posted on my humble blog. And I have posted my own story of how I came to be Saved, here, too. And if we have not learned a lot and experienced many things since we turned 21 years old, maybe some of us were living under a rock... LOL !
In the beginning of the movie: "Platoon," the Director posted a scripture from the book of Ecclesiastes, ECCLESIASTES 11:9 KJV "Rejoice, O young man, in thy youth ...
Ecclesiastes 11:9 KJV: Rejoice, O young man, ... in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of thine ... Bible RejoiceBut what's so cool and interesting with the Bible is that it usually happens that the writer first poses a question --- but then ends with the RIGHT/ PROPER Answer ! So, here is that answer in verse 10: "Therefore remove sorrow from thy heart, and put away evil from they flesh: for childhood and youth are vanity." So, here is the sum total of the whole business: "Rejoice, O young man in they youth, and let thy heart cheer thee cheer thee in the days of thy youth, and walk in the ways of heart, and in the sight in thine eyes: but know thou, that for all these things God will bring thee into judgment."
Even though a loving, kind, godly, parent will try their best to raise a child right, kids are just going to get into trouble sometimes. And then, one way or another, when we start growing up, we will 'reap what we sow.' If we have NO parent that teaches us right from wrong.... and I mean the BIBLE right from wrong... not BLM -- B.S. [the 'B.S.' stands for "berry sap...lol]. And the 'BLM' -- also, B.S., stands for the George Soros sponsored $$$$, and Obama- oink/ goof, supported --'Black Lives Matter.' LOL, and that was Obama's real "Legacy," folks... Ha!
And after you read/ listen to this all important audio/ Video below -- you might find out what 'ELSE' Obama helped to support and promote, and perhaps about 95% of our own U.S. Congress, at least knew about, but did and said, NOTHING !! Well, friends, putting shame on certain people is kind of moot and late at this point in time, but rest assured that those evil 'humans' have their get out of Dodge and D.C. card, and their hoards of gold, etc., and secret places over seas of some tropical island, ready and waiting. The damage is already done as most of us were sleeping or watching some lame TV program. And it makes sense to me that even the 'News Media' who are paid Millions $$$ also know, and also prepared, while the working class always gets the shaft.... sorry to be so blunt, folks.
I know that I am predictable and very transparent, and that may bore some of you away by now, but the ONE BIG DEAL -- ACE up our sleeve, that the rich and powerful DO NOT HAVE, is Jesus Christ, and the KJV Bible ! ! Yes ! And we are truly grateful, thankful, Joyful, Happy about.
But, it still wouldn't be a bad nor sinful thing to be somewhat 'PREPARED,' friends ! And even the books of the bible support my theme of putting something aside for emergencies and disasters. So, without repeating so much, just find a few minutes' time to check out my message today, if you can. Personally, I thought that I invested too much in certain areas, but now I think that I am within my 'safe zone.'
And the snow U.P. here is really WILD and woolly ! I just slept in for the first time ever ! I don't think that I really care to go out anywhere today, and I honestly don't need to.

ANNOUNCED: Switch To “World Money” Could Happen Sooner
If you’ve got any money at all in a U.S.-based savings account, please pay attention.
On September 30 – just a few months ago – a brand new kind of "world money" was released into the wild.
It's purpose? Ultimately, it's the currency that could replace the U.S. dollar.
But now there's been a NEW development... and it could dangerously accelerate this move out of the dollar. You need to take at least three protective steps before this happens.
