No. Socialism is immoral.
I’m not an economist. But I’m not shy about offering my beliefs on economics, and for years I’ve offered a description of what money is.
Money represents expelled human energy, and it facilitates a way for you to barter your energy with people you do not know and will never meet.
I was happy to see this primer by Walter Williams, because he defines money almost the same exact way. My way was missing a key ingredient that I will now use to supplement my argument. Money is “proof” that you already expelled that human energy.
When the government hands you notes that they’ve printed that say you’ve expelled human energy when you haven’t, you devalue the currency and we head towards the collapse of capitalism.
We need limited government for capitalism to work.
