67. Peaceful Association vs. Coercive Association

This represents my discussion and comments regarding how Capitalism and Freedom encourages Peaceful Association versus how Statism and Force encourages Coercive Association. My discussion regarding Peaceful Association under Capitalism comes first, followed by my discussion regarding Coercive Association under Statism.

Peaceful Association under Capitalism and Freedom

Capitalism encourages and promotes: Honest, Peaceful, Respectful, Voluntary, and Cooperative Associations within all social relationships and interactions, individual and/or business oriented.

This is so because I think a society of Capitalism overall recognizes and rewards rational thinking, rational behavior, rational decisions, and rational actions in all social relationships and interactions, individual and/or business, where the only purpose and function of government is to recognize, preserve, defend, and protect individual and economic freedom, individual rights, and property rights.

Overall, I think Capitalism discourages and economically punishes irrational thinking, irrational behavior, irrational decisions, and irrational actions by individuals and/or businesses – and a proper government under Capitalism certainly punishes such behavior and actions that directly violate and infringe upon individual and economic freedom, individual rights, including property rights.

The key element is that Capitalism overall encourages and promotes the focus on reality and the use of reason in all social interactions and relationships, individual and/or business – from private to governmental in nature.

VERSUS –

Coercive Association under Statism and Force

Statism encourages and promotes: Fraud, Force, Intimidation, Aggression, Coercion, and Violence within all social relationships, interactions, and associations, individual and/or business oriented.

This is so because I think that a society of Statism overall focuses on and rewards emotionalism and the evasion of rational thinking, meaning that it focuses on and rewards irrational thinking, irrational behavior, irrational decisions, and irrational actions among all social relationships and interactions, individual and/or business – greatly due to the fact that under Statism, the government has an uncontrolled and arbitrary capacity to use the threat of physical force against any individual, any association, or any business – where many politicians, private individuals, organizations, and businesses also use the favor and sanction of the government to use force, intimidation, aggression, and violence against other innocent individuals, organizations, and businesses to achieve and promote their objectives, ideas, and agenda. Under Statism, there is no recognition, preservation, defense, or protection of individual and economic freedom, individual rights, and property rights.

I think Statism discourages and economically punishes rational thinking, rational behavior, rational decisions, and rational actions by individuals and/or businesses – where the statist government directly interferes and usually punishes rational behavior and actions based on true individual and economic freedom, and the exercise of individual rights, including property rights.

The key element is that Statism overall encourages and promotes the focus on coercive government interference and the use of force in all social interactions and relationships, individual and/or business – from private to governmental in nature.
