20. Productive vs. Destructive Activities

Capitalism represents -

Productive, purposeful, beneficial activities among a peaceful, free-associating, voluntarily cooperative citizenry, with all individual rights, property rights, and derivative freedoms recognized, preserved, defended, and protected by a proper, objectively established, constitutionally-limited government - with no interference, intervention, regulation, or control by the government.

Statism represents -

Destructive, criminal, looting, corrupt activities encouraged, endorsed, and perpetrated by the state (government or ruling group) along with all associative corrupt private business cronies, special interest groups, and corrupt unions, among other statist-established entities that benefit from government regulation, government control, and government force.
