Capitalism 101 & # 8221; is an attack on forced altruism and equality. It calls for a change to the ways. The book is a blueprint of how to just and free society. Ayn Rand showed us what not to do. George Orwell showed us what would happen if we will go the wrong way. Fifty years later, Leon Weinstein shows us what is needed in order to keep our freedom and continue enjoying our prosperity.
The system of control in the US and other Western Democracies proved to be flawed and apparently stopped. In other words, when more than half of the voters receive from the state without contributing to the mutual basket, the democracy fails. At this point it will be unable to stop or even reduce entitlement programs and the morphology into a nanny state and eventual transformation into a tyranny will start.
Right to vote, they were not able to get their own labor. A right is given to the government to increase taxes at any time the government wants it, leading to corruption and destruction of trust between the productive part of the society and the elected officials. The book proves the right to vote in favor of everyone. Voting rights is a privilege.
This book proves beyond reasonable doubt that in order to sustain the high quality of life and the freedom that Americans enjoy a government, its role is to protect and serve. and NOT to use taxpayers & # 8217; money to choose, create entitlements or compete with the private sector.
One of the conclusions that a reader will inevitably reach after reading this book, is it before enacting any law or a reform, we can not even harm it smallest part of the society, and (b) it can not take from anyone any property if the owners disagree. All existing laws should be checked against the same principles and corrected.
Minorities should be fully protected. Rich are also a minority and their rights should be protected as the rights of any other minority. Smokers are also a minority. People or groups that you may not like to be protected at any cost.
No major can take from even one person what is his without the owner & # 8217; explicit permission. Not money, not property, not fruits of his labor or ideas he created. Even if the majority wants it badly, or needs it badly. Even if an owner is a very bad person. Even if he has abundance and they have none. The society has to protect the rights of each and every individual, each and every group. Otherwise the society will become a prison for all. By defending someone today, you have to protect your own interests in the future.
Looking For Hugh.
Not every American youth (even if he is an Aikido champ and the best looking guy in town) is up to disobeying kings and escaping from prisons, navigating raffs between the islands of an ocean Empire, learning swordsmanship in order to survive and win the world’s sailboat cup just to prove a point. Nick always thought about himself as an average guy, but in not-so-average circumstances, he found enough strength in his character to become a hero. But even a hero can be outsmarted and defeated. And when everything is lost, a squad of deadly Imperial guard appears from nowhere carrying a message for Nik: “You are summoned.”
“Looking for Hugh” is an action-adventure of a saga about a teen who ventured into a strange world, his friend “capitalist” Hugh, was captured by pirates, became a slave, fought on an arena as a gladiator, and met the best and the deadliest girl in the world, who just happened to be the hair to the throne.

From the Author:
Governments oppress people. .. Force people to do what people do not want to do. Governments seize properties, initiate wars, lie, cheat, defy their own laws & # 8211; and get away with it. Government seed corruption, kill, torture and steal without ever slowing down.
On the other hand, governments are viewed by the barbarism. Is it in the inherent nature of governments to be both bad and good, do harm at the same time protect us from even greater evils?
Some people say “bad things happen only” we have the wrong form of government. “Others say” terrible deeds ” thousand years now. They repeat it in every country, on every continent, all the time. So & # 8230; either all types of government or people in power were always bad & # 8230; or perhaps, just maybe, there is another reason for us-the-people and the governments to be on the opposite side of so many crucial issues?
