The Rational Capitalist: Philosophical Foundations of Immigration in a Free Society



Collectivism is the idea that you are determined by your membership in a group, i.e., that
your fate is sealed by your class, the geography of your birth, or some factor beyond your control.  Individualism holds that each person possesses free will and reason and thus can make independent judgments.  However, rationality is not automatic - it is a potential.  People are influenced, by a myriad of complex factors including their biology, their family, and the culture around them, where culture is defined as the dominant ideas and customs
prevailing in each country or geographical area.

Trump's Spectacular Speech From Seoul | The Rosett Report



He gave specific examples: a
nine-year-old boy "imprisoned for 10 years because his grandfather was
accused of treason." North Korea women forced to abort babies or give up
for murder newborns "that are considered ethnically inferior" or
"impure" -- including a case of a baby taken away in a bucket because
its father was Chinese. Trump recounted that "the horror of life in
North Korea is so complete that its citizens pay bribes to government
officials to have themselves exported as slaves." He noted that
"possession of foreign media is a crime punishable by death," so is
trying to flee the country, and he described the system in which
"citizens spy on fellow citizens... every action is subject to
surveillance" and people are bombarded almost every waking hour by state
propaganda.
As Trump summed it up:
North Korea is a country ruled by a cult. At the center of this
military cult is a deranged belief in the leader's destiny to rule as
parent-protector over a conquered peninsula and an enslaved Korean
people.

DISHONEST ANTI-DONALD TRUMP PROPAGANDA EXPOSED - YouTube

The President has never supported or had divisive rhetoric regarding hate groups. The technique of editing has grossly mis-construed what he's said (editing out, cutting to different statements) and taken things grossly out of context. I'm not being angry here, just giving correct info that many don't have. Here is one example of how this has been done:

University of Alabama in Huntsville and U.S. Science Team Leader for the

multiple assumptions fed into alarmist computer models.

(98) GOING...GOING ... THE TYRANNY OF INTOLERANCE... - Manfred W. Smith



Attacks on Confederate statues, Gone With the Wind, and President Trump share one theme in common: intolerance of dissension. It’s not merely the content of the ideas or persons being attacked; it’s the very idea of being exposed to opposing or dissenting opinion at all. Even when that opinion is not even opinion, as in the case of a novel, a movie or the work of historical art expressed in a statue, it’s no longer safe. Not if it offends the ruling elites.

Totalitarian mindsets gaining ascendancy today insist: “If you paint, sculpt, compose or create something that offends me, then I’m morally and politically entitled to have it destroyed.” This is fascism, at its core. This is not America.
I can hardly believe I’m living in an America that shows such a mindset sweeping into the mainstream.

Where did you go, America?"

The # 1 Reason Millions of Americans Love President Trump

President Trump may go down in history as the ultimate implementation
of the old legend, “The Emperor Has No Clothes.” He has single-handedly
exposed the overwhelmingly biased media, the feckless government
bureaucracy, the hopelessly insulated career politicians and all the
others who think they are important and relevant do-gooders as the toxic
and destructive phony parasites they really are. He has shown how none
of them have any clothes, and never really did.


Whatever lies ahead for America in general and President Trump in
particular, it’s possible to argue that his most important mission has
already been accomplished. Here’s hoping he does a lot more of it, for
as much time as he has.

Altruism Smothers a Republican Revolution—Again - The Objective Standard



The failure of Republicans to repeal Obamacare—despite public support for repealing it—marks yet another large-scale demonstration of how morality, not lobbying or machinations or economic arguments, controls government policy.

And it’s the morality of altruism, tragically, that’s thwarted Republicans again.

An earlier instance was the Gingrich-led “Republican revolution” of 1995. The American people had swept in a Republican majority in Congress, because they liked Gingrich’s “Contract with America,” which called for some heavy-duty reining-in of government power and looting.

President Clinton was “triangulating”—that is, capitulating to the Republicans. But two words from the intellectual establishment stopped the movement: “mean-spirited.” The Democrats and the media chanted “mean-spirited” endlessly, and altruism worked its black magic.

The Six Most Important Reasons I'm A Climate Skeptic And Why You Should Be Skeptical Too

Being a climate-change skeptic doesn’t mean you deny Earth’s climate has warmed or scientific findings. It simply means that you let facts, not speculation and fear-mongering, guide how you view the debate. If that sounds reasonable, then you’re probably a climate-change skeptic too.

For nearly 30 years, some scientists and many liberal activists have been alleging that the world is on the verge of collapse because of humans’ use of fossil fuels, which they say have been causing global warming.

For example, the San Jose Mercury News (Calif.) reported on June 30, 1989: “A senior environmental official at the United Nations, Noel Brown, says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the earth by rising sea levels if global warming is not reversed by the year 2000. Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of ‘eco-refugees,’ threatening political chaos, said Brown, director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program. He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human [control.]”

But despite the constant cries from the left proclaiming the “science is settled” and that there’s a “scientific consensus,” there are many reasons to reject these assumptions. Here are six of the most important ones:

President Trump's Remarkable Warsaw Speech - Washington Free Beacon

 Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost? Do
we have enough respect for our citizens to protect our borders? Do we
have the desire and the courage to preserve our civilization in the face
of those who would subvert and destroy it?
