If you saw the title and thought this was some sort of political rant by me, well, jokes on you, sucker.
This is the first ever clip of 2012 convention footage, featuring none other than Doug McGuff M.D.
In this video Doug fundamentally rejects the popular mantra that capitalism is grounded in slitting someone else’s throat.
Doug identities the root, and the essence of capitalism, in kindness.
In peaceful, non-violent, non-fraudulent trade between consenting human beings.
In treating other people with dignity and respect.
As usual, Doug hits the nail on the head.
Remember this video the next time you hear someone bashing capitalism as incompassionate, primitive, or “ruthless”, because what they are calling for is the eradication of compassion, reason, and kindness from human relationships.
What they are calling for is nothing less than violence.
