Create Heaven on Earth

Laissez-faire Capitalism:
Creating Heaven on Earth

You're invited to join a conspiracy to overthrow all the kingdoms of the world and establish the Kingdom of God.

No, that sounds a little hokey.

Many Christians -- perhaps a majority -- believe that the idea of creating "heaven on earth" is a very bad idea. They believe we are in "the last days" of earth's history, and everything is going to get worse before it gets even worse. Making things better only delays the Second Coming, they believe. Find out why this idea is wrong.

How about a conspiracy to create heaven on earth?

We call it "The Christmas Conspiracy!"

It's a conspiracy to spread "laissez-faire capitalism."

"Capitalism" means "liberty." "Laissez-faire" comes from a French phrase meaning "let us do," or "let us work" -- let us do what we do best.* What human beings do best is create heaven on earth. "Laissez-faire" was directed to socialists in government who believed they knew how to create heaven on earth using the coercive apparatus of "The State."

We believe "the State" creates hell on earth. We believe socialism is demonic. We believe in PURE laissez-faire Christian capitalism. We believe in Liberty Under God.

The whole world knows that capitalism works and socialism is a failure. The fall of the Berlin Wall and the breakup of the Soviet Union shout this truth across the globe.

And yet, virtually everyone in the United States has been trained in government schools and by a government-dominated media to believe that socialism is better than capitalism, and that no economy can succeed without some socialism.

This is what makes The Christmas Conspiracy! so controversial: we are working to eliminate all socialism and establish pure "laissez-faire" capitalism as a means of creating heaven on earth.

This is the issue: Is there any human activity that is more efficiently carried out under threats of violence and force than under liberty?

America became the most admired nation on earth because it stood for the proposition that capitalism (liberty) succeeds and socialism fails.

This menu lists over 200 areas of human endeavor where it is often alleged that Americans could not succeed without government regulation. But all you have to do is look at the things you have and enjoy, compare your life with that of most people living in socialist countries, and ask, "If the federal government were to be abolished, would entrepreneurs and businessmen make sure that I had access to the best quality at the lowest price?"

If you answer no -- for example,

"No, businessmen are greedy and immoral and would only manufacture shoes of low quality and sell them at rip-off prices, unless bureaucrats were regulating them,"

and you added,

"And consumers are stupid, and would always buy low quality at a high price and wouldn't care for their family unless federal bureaucrats were making sure families paid attention to the most important things."

-- then you have a religious faith in the State and its regulators, and believe that when greedy businessmen and stupid consumers are elected to government positions by their greedy and stupid peers, these newly-elected human beings suddenly lose their greed and stupidity and become altruistic and intelligent overseers of others. "Statism" is a religious belief in the depravity of human beings and faith in the sanctified state.

History tells us that where there is "Liberty Under God," you and I will work hard, with creativity and integrity, to provide goods and services which benefit the lives of others. We will find ways to produce better goods than our competitor and will bend over backwards to do so at a lower cost. In our efforts to get the business of others, we will improve the lives of our customers, because we know that where there is liberty, our customers have the freedom to shop elsewhere, and other Americans have the freedom to start a business which will sell what consumers demand.

History proves that capitalism works and socialism fails. The great economists have explained why:

Mises in particular, and his Nobel Prize-winning student, F. A. Hayek, conclusively proved that without the price mechanism of the free market, socialist planners can never allocate resources in the most efficient manner. Mises’ work has never been refuted:

The Christmas Conspiracy! accepts as a matter of unchanging economic law the fundamental inefficiency of centralized government planning over free market decision-making. The reader can turn to the bibliography below for a nearly complete defense of the concept.

Some Fundamental Insights Into the Benevolent Nature of Capitalism

If socialism is a violation of basic economic laws, then our concept of "the government" must be repudiated. The key to a well-governed society is "Liberty Under God," not "the government." The key to prosperity is capitalism, not socialism. Every action of "the government" is the imposition of socialism. We must eliminate every trace of socialism from America.

Socialism is immoral.

But what about crime?

OK, you concede, capitalism builds better and cheaper cars than the Kremlin. But what about crime? If we abolish the government, crime will break out and capitalism will collapse into "anarchy" (chaos).

This too is statism.

This is the belief that you and I are basically criminals in waiting, and only politicians can be trusted to keep us in line. Of course, you and I and other criminals in waiting are the ones who will "vote" for these sanctified and benevolent overseers, who will keep us from acting out our criminal proclivities. Although in every other area of our lives we are "depraved," when we vote we are wise and community-oriented. Once criminals like you and I "vote" for our fellow criminals, they become sanctified protectors of law and order and keep us from our depraved ways.

If you own a business, you cannot be trusted to hire a security agency to guard your store. Your insurance agency isn't smart enough to tell you to hire a protection service in order to continue your insurance coverage. And I must be forced to pay for your security service with "taxes," because I am too greedy and you are too stupid to make sure your business is safe.

* "Laissez-faire" comes from a French phrase meaning "let us do," or "let us work" -- let us do what we do best.

Socialism could never have done these things, so we say to socialists, "Laissez-faire!" [back]
