33. Association Under Capitalism vs. Statism

Capitalism encourages people to compete and associate with each other rationally and peacefully, respecting each other’s individual and economic freedom, individual rights, including property rights, and derivative freedoms – both in personal and business activities, practices, trade, agreements, dealings, relationships, and associations.

VERSUS -

Statism encourages people to compete and associate with each other irrationally and forcefully, dishonestly and deceptively, ignoring and violating individual and economic freedom, individual rights, including property rights, and derivative freedoms – both in personal and business activities, practices, trade, agreements, dealings, relationships, and associations.
