Capitalism & Economic Freedom | Total Supremacy III

Choose freedom. The means of production are privately owned and the goal of these means of production is profit maximization. That’s capitalism. It’s a simple concept - one whose reputation has been sullied by ahistorical narratives, such as Howard Zinn’s “A Peoples’ History of the United States” and The New York Times’ “1619 Project,” the [...]
