The Case for Free Enterprise

No, no, no, this is not a post about the television show Star Trek: Enterprise. And no, this post is not about an obscure film called “Free Enterprise.” This is a post about some short films promoting the concept known as free enterprise, also sometimes called capitalism. Yes, I like capitalism. I believe it to be good for society. Why? Well, I will let the short films explain.

Here are some of the AEI’s featured videos from their 2012 contest.

Stuff like this gives me hope for this country. I am not ashamed to say several of these videos brought tears to my eyes. I want to believe our society can get better. We can make the world better with cooperation, trade and respect for other individuals. Yes, I do like capitalism. I like freedom. It is the right thing, the moral thing. And I am gladdened to see it promoted as such. Because the reason I like capitalism is because I care about helping people and making the world a better place.

I know that concept just blows the minds of some politically left-wing folks. And that makes me smile.
