Do you think it is moral to grade exams so that everyone gets the same grades? No? Then is it moral for the state to redistribute incomes? I don’t think so. You see, many people think of Free Market Capitalism as Immoral, but that is not so. In fact, it is both morally and financially superior to any other organization.
In a Free market, to get something from someone else, you have to do something for them. And that is what money represents, a certificate of performance, proving the good deeds you have done for your fellow man. Other people think that the Free Market is a one-sided game, where one person wins, and the other loses, but they’re wrong. In fact, most of the time, it’s a win-win scenario. You do something good for me, like fixing my bike, and I’ll do something good for you, such as giving you $10. The funny thing is, is that it’s the state who is making these one-sided deals, you get your food stamp, but you are taking it out of the paychecks of many others, who worked hard to get their money. Isn’t it more moral for someone to serve others for your food, rather than not serve others, and get it anyways?
Some others worry that giant co-operations might have too much control in our lives, but you see, in a free market, the businesses that satisfy its customers go up, and those who dissatisfy go down. Profit becomes a measure of how well the company has served others. But right now, the government can undo this. The government takes our taxes and then bails out giant corporations that are not half as efficient as they should be.
Many people also think Free Enterprise isn’t fair and that it is driven by greed. But the thing is, Entrepreneurs can only help themselves through helping others. Therefore, in a free market, it is the Voluntary effort of citizens, not the government, that drives the economy. That sounds pretty moral to me.
