The Big Farce of Free Speech in the Free Market:
President George Bush and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld

Nipawin - Wednesday - November 19, 2003 - by: Mario deSantis


It is my contention that in our world economy there is no such a thing as the "free market" a place where goods and services are exchanged at prices determined by their demand and supply. Whenever we see the endemic violence, poverty, and corruption which are occurring at home and abroad, then we understand that there is no such a thing as a fair Free Market.




We try to rationalise the goodness of the Free Market and therefore we blame the bad guys for all shortcomings. The fact is that this Free Market is only free for the rich and powerful, and that it is an American fallacy to represent the Free Market as the ultimate expression of democracy.




For me the Free Market is just a Big Farce and I am sure that this Free Market would be a Big Farce for everybody else to see if we could only learn all over again to think for ourselves rather than to follow the deceptive thinking of our leaders. We must always think for ourselves to understand ourselves, other people and our problems. We must never give up our thinking and fall into the trap of following the good leader, when in reality, this good leader maybe a good leader now and a bad guy later.


We live in a complex world where fictional reality mixes with the real reality and we can't understand anymore what is real from what is fiction. In this complex world, the rich and powerful use their deceptive thinking to transform this complex world into the fictional world of the Free Market: black is white, white is black, black is black, white is white, in an ever discretional changing definition of what is black and of what is white.
  Have you ever paid attention to the words mouthed by President George Bush or by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld? Whatever they say is a Big Farce, that is an expression of Free Speech in the Free Market. The sad part of this farce is that people are dying as democracy is eroding:

"It's in the interest of -- uhh -- uhh, long-term peace in the world that we -- uhh -- work for a free and secure and peaceful Iraq. A peeance, freeance secure Iraq in the midst of the Middle East will have enormous historical impact."

President George Bush, October 27, 2003


"I would not say that the future is necessarily less predictable than the past - I think the past was not predictable when it started."

Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, April 3, 2003
