Power to the Government

Under capitalism, the government’s power is limited and checked by the business sector. Under communism, the government owns all the businesses, making government power unlimited. And unchecked.

Who is more powerful: Donald Trump or Mark Zuckerberg?

On one hand, U.S. President Donald Trump has the launch codes for the largest arsenal of nuclear weapons the world has ever known. He is also the commander and chief of the U.S. military. He has the full force and credit of the U.S. Federal government behind him. In theory, anyway.

“If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear.”

Yikes. Now, of course, in China the people with the most to fear are those who dare speak out against the authoritarian government. Political dissidents, journalists, student activists; imagine an American president, this President, with that kind of power to silence critics and opponents. That’s communism.
