This is a response to the recent admonition of capitalism and the political moderate by U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
America has worked thus far because of Centrism. Our primary issues do not come from moderates, but from partisans that cause division due to their extremist or reactionary beliefs. The 20th Century was rife with such people and it always lead to democide (Nazi Germany as a reaction against Communists, Soviet Union as a reaction against Capitalists) or oppression (McCarthyism as a reaction against Communism). You will have witch hunts, you will have famines, you will have mass immigration to freer lands, and stock market collapse.
I want to take time to examine Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez’s belief that capitalism is irredeemable and should give way to socialism, and that being a moderate or a centrist is a “non-position.”
