To question the crusade against profits is to question the orthodoxy, the church of Keynes, the church of Marx, the corroding corruption of neosocialism; the corruption of jealousy, corruption, hate, greed, swiftly ascending, against the drive for profit, with its great deluge of aiding the masses in order to aid themselves, in order to revert the world's back to the old: Feudalism. The alternative is not evil; it is naturally good. For if there was no good, there would be no profit. Then, what does profit represent?

Profit represents the creation of the possibility for more transaction; inherently good in most respects, except perhaps how it is to be procured. Profit represents the redistribution of wealth from the wealthy to the poor, in hedonistic aspiration. It represents the elimination of poverty; it represents the progress of the Society, being made up of individuals. It is the apex of velocity; it is a non-constant that further accelerates, only to be stopped by outside, and perhaps unforeseen, forces. For example, neosocialism, which represents a myriad of philosophies so diverse that frankly I can no longer a discern a single one, but the overlying principle seems to be this: less profit, more people. But does that make sense?

It certainly doesn't; profit _is_ people. If there was no profit, there would be no distribution. The massive push for forced distribution, fiat transaction, false wealth, is really just a push to bankrupt morality and the system, to be replaced by their own utopia. The sole responsibility of a business to make more profit and regulate how it earns that profit. We cannot have cheating, crony capitalism, but nonetheless, we must also have profit. For more profit means less poverty, and a betterment of man's condition, for profit represents the velocity of wealth; prices are based upon income; wages are in macro scale irrelevant, for if everything was unaffordable, then no profit would be made. To forcibly redistribute wealth via trickle down economics (Socialism) is a great err of long lasting repercussions; buying more cheeseburgers doesn't help the economy. Business creation does. More profits does. More voluntary exchange, money velocity, does; buying more cheeseburgers via forced distribution is not real money velocity, it is fake, a false statistic. Likewise, as we near the end of the great Socialist (some say "progressive") experiment, and profits and globalism are blamed erroneously, I hope that in the end ideals of Liberalism are remembered, and the world adopts the best of the worst hard realities.
