Here we go again.
Just like the NGOs that need disasters to survive and work against everything that mitigates death during natural disasters – foremost among these being the wealth generated by capitalist economies and the building codes that then can be implemented and policed, now we have microfinancing lifting the poor out of poverty in developing countries, and the same kind of NGOs and non-profits whine about it because microfinancers make a profit.
Hello! Central planning and socialist economics don’t work. Very, very demonstrably don’t work.
Pop quiz: Which country is/was more economically stable and providing a better future for its citizens – Pre-1989 China or China today, with all the capitalist marketplace it wants?
Obviously lifting the poor isn’t the goal of these “socially responsible” institutions, rather it’s keeping people poor so that they need the NGOs, so NGOs can keep working on other people’s money rather than getting a real job and becoming contributors rather than parasites.
Just like Democrats and the working class – if the Working people succeed and make money, they become Republicans in order to protect what they have earned – from Democrats. And Democrats whine that these people don’t support the Working Americans – and try to take it all away to give to those who chose not to study, learn, and work.
Left to Democrats and their “social consciousness” programs, these poor remain poor. Left to capitalism, they prosper. It’s the same the world over and throughout history.
Capitalism = wealth. Every single time. Look around.
Why Democrats cannot understand this is one of the Wonders of the Age. Why voters continue to expect Democrats to understand the world is beyond all thinking people everywhere.
