  6. In traditional education, a pure free market is idealized as self-regulating, without the need for outside interference, such as government regulation, touting unobstructed trade between "voluntary" parties, with prices determined through supply and demand.

    But "pure" fully autonomous, self-regulating market economy is actually not possible in real life, even though many are still convinced that it could be.

    Simply put, such self-regulatory market forces have a limited range of effect and once factors of fraud, desperation, irrationality, and the host of detrimental EXTERNALITIES come into play, the whole thing falls apart into disorder and abuse, much like how the global world market is today.

    This is where infinite and endless debate occurs over how much interference government should impose. In fact, most of the major economic schools divide themselves along these lines.

    Terms such as "neoliberal," "laissez faire," "deregulation," or "nonintervention" are common to those who feel the market should be more "free" in order to be more economically efficient.

    Conversely, those who argue for increased regulation/state controls, unions, welfare, and increased safeguards tend to be categorized along the slippery slope of derided pejorative bowels of market "socialism."

    At the epicenter of the debate is the degree of faith in MARKET SELF-REGULATION. Adam Smith, the 18th century philosopher largely considered the father of this worldview, coined the now famous term INVISIBLE HAND to suggest that people, acting selfishly in their economic behavior, will paradoxically produce outcomes that improve society as a whole, with what laid the foundation for GENERAL EQUILIBRIUM THEORY.

    This theory sought to explain the functioning of the market as a whole in terms of supply, demand, prices, and argued for a resulting balance to some acceptable degree without intervention, preventing things like banking failures, extreme wage differentials, goods shortages, and other imbalances that have ironically been long constituents and constants in capitalist societies.

    A notable example was the 1999 financial deregulation of US banks through the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act, introduced after the Great Depression in 1933 to help ensure commercial banks would no longer get involved with investment banks, pursuing risky speculation with their customers' assets. However, once repealed, after about $300 million in lobbying efforts, commercial banks turned around and engaged in credit-default swaps and other high-risk derivatives, paving the way for the 2008 global financial crisis.

    Not only did the 2008 financial crisis trigger millions of home foreclosures, but an estimated 10,000 suicides between 2008 and 2010 have also been linked to the related "Great Recession" across America and Europe, along with 500,000 deaths worldwide from cancer due to lack of medical attention as a result of financial loss, unemployment, and/or loss of public healthcare benefits.

    THE BELIEF IN THE "FREE MARKET," AS IT IS STILL POLITICALLY TERMED ACROSS THE WORLD, IS A CRITICALLY IMPORTANT MYTH TO MODERN SOCIETY. THE PUBLIC'S FAITH IN THE MARKET SYSTEM, WITH ALL ITS CLAIMS OF "FREEDOM" AND "EMPOWERMENT," SERVES TO PROTECT THE STATUS QUO, DOMINANCE HIERARCHY, AND, MOST IMPORTANT, THE VAST SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC PRIVILEGE ENJOYED BY THE ELITE MINORITY.

    It is a system that paints the illusion of a non-totalitarian social order that engages in no real coercion or violence against the population.

    YET THE TRUTH IS THAT THE MARKET IS AT BEST ONLY A MILD IMPROVEMENT IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF HISTORICAL SYSTEMS BASED UPON SCARCITY, SELF-INTEREST, COMPETITION, AND DOMINANCE.

    ANCIENT SLAVERY, FEUDALISM, MERCANTILISM, AND ALL POST-NEOLITHIC SOCIAL SYSTEMS THUS FAR HAVE BEEN FOUNDATIONALLY ELITIST IN THEIR MECHANISMS AND LOYALTIES, SHARING THIS COMMON THREAD OF STRUCTURAL VIOLENCE.

    While there are political, religious, and other social aspects to the broadest definition of structural violence, one only needs to look at only the aspects linked to the market economy's organization structure and its derived incentives to see massive SOCIAL POLLUTION.

    Social pollution, or the socioeconomic form of structural violence that correlates to millions of deaths a year through poverty and suffering while arguably being completely unnecessary, with the conclusion that this form of violence kills and harms more than all wars, dictators, genocides, and other direct kinds of violence put together.

    In the words of scholar Joel Kovel, poetically encapsulating the procedural nature of this ongoing yet rather silent tragedy:

    "NEVER HAS A HOLOCAUST BEEN CARRIED OUT SO IMPERSONALLY."

    To explain the outline and flow of causality, I'll start by restating that a social system based on property, exchange, labor-for-income, competitive self-regulation, and the capacity to profit from scarcity and suffering, sets in motion this predictable array of outcomes.

    The cyclical consumption needed to keep employment up, along with the need for economic growth to recover from previous contractions, powers the machine's structure. Earthly resources are inventory to be exploited, along with human labor. At the same time, negative externalities flourish, and increasingly so, as our technological capacity grows, often being used for the wrong purposes such as war.

    This is all embodied in the market structure, like the tiny seed that sprouts a towering tree.

    Again, it is often argued that capitalism is a specific mode of market behavior, separate from other forms of market economies. This is a false distinction. While economists often talk about true "free markets" or differentiate between "state capitalism," merchant capitalism," and even "market socialism," these are all variations on a core, foundational theme.

    The tiny seed that grew to a towering tree may produce various fruits, but no matter how diverse they seem, the genetics of that tree remain the same, stuck in monetary exchange and scarcity.

    The system can only produce a limited range of societal variation, along with a limited range of resulting social psychology — such as deprivation, stratification, prejudice, mental illness, violence, and exploitation and oppression.

  7. Trump is not only most bully but also most untrustworthy president ever in History. He lie average of 1200 a month. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Veracity_of_statements_by_Donald_Trump

  8. please name one gun law that has ever reduced crime.

  9. smart people………they called each other liars

  10. History is made day by day but not all days are as consequential as others. D-Day set in motion a future that reshaped borders, populations, and destroyed the tyrannical dreams of The Third Reich, a cultish cancerous obedience to a mad man, the cult of personality. Destruction on a scale we haven’t seen that started simply as an outlier political party, The Brown Shirt Party that ultimately seized control Of Germany and consequently all of Europe with the burning of the Reichstag, the modern equivalent of our Congress.

    Now a political party that was overtaken by the minority fringe, reshaped by Prime time cable propaganda and a faceless unaccountable digital town square has put in jeopardy the rule of law, our revered norms and the time tested documents of governance to expedite a predetermined outcome- if he is a Republicans president then he is beyond the law; the law be dammed. They will not suffer another defeat as they did with Nixon. We are going to look away while we tread upon our constitution that has been soaked in blood on this soil and abroad. There is nothing more sacred than the rule of law in a democracy, the central contract of our republic . We are not even going to put the President’s guilt or innocence to the test as required by impeachment as we can’t count on an outcome that is favorable, not to a nation but to the cult of personality; a tailored made lawless man. Today history is unmade and consequences unknown as we no longer follow the rule of law; we now stand as unequal collective.
    They argue with lies, denials, distraction and accusations all while admitting to the House charges but only how they narrowly redefine them. It’s a magic act where all can see how the trick is performed. No longer can they make the excuse that “he’s new to this,” “he didn’t know what he’s doing” , or “ Don’t listen to his word.” ,”Don’t take his tweets literally.” No one has ever been this lawless and unaccountable all while draping themself in the Flag For Which It Stands. A complete sham in the most consequential court and Legislative body of the world. The Rule of Law being tailored made and reimagined for one man and unmade for the rest as a result. I no longer know for which it stands. Now we face a pandemic in the “shadow of a renegade president who fuels fear with an ether megaphone. It’s all about him. Wasn’t It was conceived and created for and by U.S?

  11. I was both delighted and amazed when MLK Day happened. Now 2 b truly "free" blacks need 2 get out of the ghettos and put away their guns…

  12. Wrong on that "half of Americans want the president inpeached"🙄
    It's the delusional who do!🤬

  13. Incredibly the Democrats are STILL trying to set the rules of impeachment in the Senate!!…..

  14. I'm so sick of all this , mostly how the trump haters keep making it all sound much bigger then it really is . The Dems keep saying the sky is falling the sky is falling . Shame on Schiff and is people . The joke is on them !
