Its most definitely a theory, as it applies to the United States.   I dont give a shit if its worked in some homogeneous, miniature society in the mountains of Norway.  

You're  cheering on a government shut down to achieve a socialized policy for border funds. Can you not see your ridiculous hypocrisy? lmfao

Devout communists literally spend their life being nerds examining how capitalism and consumerism operates, but you think they don't know how corporations fabricate wants and needs via advertising?

 

 

Everybody talking about an add doesn't mean it's a positive add. Look at how many people thumbs downed it on a platform that is 90% men. Not all publicity is good plubicity. They basically wagged their fingers at the people that buy their products. Most certainly they will lose and gain customers, but I wouldn't call it a net positive. I guess we will see.

Socialism actually expands the private sector and individual freedom but yeah keep up the double think American dumbass

You're going to have to explain how the government seizing the private sector promotes individual freedom.

Advertisers do not care if the content is taken positively or negatively. You're unwillingly spreading their brand and their publicity and it's hilarious.

No, we're cheering on the eradication of socialized policy of funding illegal immigrants. Essentially we are paying off credit cards so we will no longer have to pay interest.

It's an investment comrade

Depends on how government employs the private sector. Does hiring a bunch of dudes with government funds to create a wall increase freedom? Or does it prove to the world that America is entering it's apartheid stage of its development?

Real socialism doesn't have economic liberties.

I think you're talking about democratic socialism, which yes both parties evoke.

Triggered conservatives who hate being told off for their shit, toxic behavior are the minority. For every dumbass who boycotts the brand or (lol smashes their own personal property) just creates organic growth in advertising for the brand.

Unlike you pathetic fragile hacks, most people don't care about the ad and the added publicity will only plant the brand in their heads.

Real socialism is the extension of democracy to the workplace and to every day life. Currently in America there is no freedom because it's ruled by totalitarian institutions that are corporations.

The government doesn't issue the currency. Private banks do. The Federal reserve is not a part of the government.

And you're naive to think a government taking over the reigns would become any less totalitarian.

Yes it does. And so do banks. The 'federal reserve is not part of government' meme is a lie to depoliticize the democratic process.

I already said before it depends on what the government policy is. If it's government policy by Republicans it is usually totalitarian. If it is a policy that supplements the private sector and creates wealth and freedom then it isn't totalitarian.

The question asked is does this policy increase or decrease freedom? Not whether it is government or not.

Freedom is irrelevant. True freedom is anarchy so you need a different metric.

You obviously do need the lecture given how personally attacked you feel, along with the rest of the triggered conservatives who are doing Gilette's advertising for them.

Anarchism is the goal if you advocate freedom yes. Anarchy means 'without rulers'.

The federal reserve isn't borrowing from anyone. It issues the currency which is why it doesn't act as a credit card.

Do private bankers or elected government officials sit on the board of the fed?
