GUIDE TO A RADICAL CAPITALISM
Third edition, 2014
This book is dedicated to
Robert A. Heinlein,
from whom I learned
Robert M. Schuchman,
who might have written it better
Capitalism is the best. It’s free enterprise. Barter. Gimbels, if I get really rank with the clerk, ‘Well I don’t like this’, how I can resolve it? If it really gets ridiculous, I go, ‘Frig it, man, I walk.’ What can this guy do at Gimbels, even if he was the president of Gimbels? He can always reject me from that store, but I can always go to Macy’s. He can’t really hurt me. Communism is like one big phone company. Government control, man. And if I get too rank with that phone company, where can I go? I’ll end up like a schmuck with a dixie cup on a thread.
Why can’t you see?
We just want to be free
To have our homes and families
And live our lives as we please.
