Josh Sigurdson reports on the latest craziness coming from the mouth of one of the most uneducated congresswomen, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez!
Recently AOC noted that automation isn’t necessarily a bad thing which isn’t actually incorrect as automation does lead to more jobs long-term. But it was her reasoning that made no sense. She claimed that it was the freedom of exchange and ideas that caused people to be poor and unable to get better jobs when their jobs were replaced. This has no basis in reality.
The reason people are going broke and wages aren’t keeping up with the price of living is due to the fact that the price of living is constantly inflated by the obsessive printing of fiat currency out of thin air alongside market restricting regulations and taxes that push small businesses out of the market allowing only the major monopolies and duopolies to reign in the market.
Competition is all about selling the best quality product at the best price and individuals giving those products demand with their currency. If the company produced something of low value, they would go out of business.
A more competitive market means more businesses competing, producing, innovating which leads to more employment and lower prices. This is basic economics. But of course, AOC doesn’t comprehend the most basic of economics and goes off of emotional talking points instead, blaming the competition on the market for the problems created by government. Her solution? Government! More of it!
The absurdity of the statements coming from AOC are more than just hilarious, but they’re also highly concerning. Individuals must see through this veil of “caring” and see it for what it is, a push to make the populace more dependent and subservient to the state. We must break free from it. We must rule ourselves, decentralize and support freedom and responsibility, not rule.
