Ahmadinejad on America’s Fate


Ahmadinejad on America’s Fate

In an Associated Press article entitled: “Iran Leader Blasts U.S, Capitalism”, Karin Laube describes Ahmadinejad’s speech to the U.N..

“Ahmadinejad portrayed Iran as a defender of poor countries, lashed-out at unbridled capitalism which he said has reached the end of the road and will suffer the same fate as Marxism.”

The main message is unmistakable. This meglomaniac dictator thinks that our way of life is all but on the trash-heap of history. O.k., what else would you expect him to say? We’re supposed to listen to this crazy man?! We’re supposed to listen to the man who repeatedly states that the holocaust never happened, etc.?!

But wait—did you notice the word “unbridled” when he refered to our doomed capitalism?

If capitalism is now unbridled, it must mean that it was once bridled by something. Could it be that Ahmadinejad has noticed something that we have not? Afterall, even psychotics can perceive fragments of reality.

In my opinion, what once “bridled” Capitalism (and also our Republic) was the more pervasive rule of ethics and morality. These ethics were based upon Judeo/Christian religious teachings. Of course the influences of these ethics was never perfect,  they were greatly more powerful than they are now.

Our Founding Fathers knew that our Republic could not last without a strong religious/ethical base. More recently, Thomas Sowell (the well-known Economist) documented the powerfully damaging effects of corruption upon the economies of Nations (see my recommended readings).

People, I am sickened with fear about crazy Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s prediction: “unbridled capitalism will suffer the same fate as Marxism.”

P.S. The Associated Press article appeared in the 9/24/09 issue of the South Bend Tribune (Indiana).

P.S., I now detect that increasingly our fate may well be Marxism! (3/8/18)
