Obama’s, “IF YOU’VE GOT A BUSINESS – YOU DIDN’T BUILD THAT! SOMEBODY ELSE MADE THAT HAPPEN” is indicative of the mentality of a spread-the-wealth statist.
There are a lot of self-made Americans who would agree with me because they worked their butt off to achieve their unassisted success. In fact, most business owners site the government red tape as the biggest barrier to their rapid success.
Obama added, “If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet.”
Are you sure that the internet was not developed for the military or to spy on people? The government truly developed the internet for OUR success? I think that President should do a fact check on the internet and why it was developed. Moreover, he should survey some successful people on how much help they did not get on their way to a successful life.
Karl Marx’s Law of Negation
This law was created to account for the tendency in nature to constantly increase the numerical quantity of all things. Marx and Engels decided that each entity tends to negate itself in order to reproduce itself in higher quantity. Engels often cited the case of the barley seed which, in its natural state, germinates and out of its own death or negation produces a plant. The plant in turn grows to maturity and is itself negated after bearing many barley seeds. Thus, all nature is constantly expanding through dying. The elements of opposition which produce conflict in each thing and give it motion also tend to negate the thing itself; but out of this dynamic process of dying the energy is released to expand and produce many more entities of the same kind.
