Patriots Principles, the gifts that keep on giving
Hello astronomers! Today we talk about that Star in the East. According to specialists, the Star the wise men followed was a supernatural event, namely a supernova giving birth to a new star, and possibly some planets, one of which would be life-friendly, like in our starship solar system gliding along in our galactic cruise ship.
What does all this have to do with our principles, namely economy, unity, and capitalism? We’ll get to that; but let’s first get in a holiday mood, because thanks to our Principles, we have plenty to celebrate, and could roll Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Day, and Easter all into a year-long holiday season with capitalism alone. How would that work? Let’s see.
Capitalism is a good place to start. Remember, we also have to show that a principle must prove itself worthy of being called a rule of good behavior. So what does capitalism do? The American Heritage Dictionary calls capitalism an economic system. That means it behaves economically, and so does reality when it uses the debris left over from a stellar explosion; i.e. a supernova, as a place to create and promote lifeforms like plants, animals and civilizations. Note that reality first produced a star from hydrogen and helium (good stuff), and used them to create over 90 other elements in a daughter star that is able to create off-springs (planets), some of which create and raise plants and animals along with other good stuff like soil and water.
Note that soil and water don’t mix well on their own, because of the Pauli Exclusion Principle. That’s one of reality’s principles that keep certain particles from occupying the same space at the same time. That’s how reality created private property rights for capitalism to capitalize on, in that private property constitutes a necessary ingredient in order for capitalism to work properly.
Now capitalism has what it needs to produce and trade private goods and services for ones better suited to meet individual wants and needs both for now, and in the future. In other words, capitalism makes and trade good stuff, for better stuff, and the difference between the two represents profits for the trading partners. Sometimes profits are recognized as gains, or benefits. Certainly gains represent positive differences, as do earnings and benefits. Note that all trading partners benefit in trustworthy “free market” exchanges. Thus capitalism constitutes a dynamic, mutually beneficial system that serves as a moral standard for advanced civilizations; fancy that! And, we haven’t even gotten to the really good part yet. Note that the supernatural process that beckoned the wise men to travel was also arguably an example of capitalism at work. The best is yet to come.
