  • Capital and Self-Interest

    It is true that private property ownership does have a ‘spin-off’ being that such properties are generally ‘looked after’ maintained and so what they do and achieve works and continues working. That this continuance transforms into goods and services for others who need them and who are without them. In short, the private property bastion […]

  • Everyone’s and No-one’s

    Mankind cannot without his neighbour’s heed Survive, but cannot, will not, trust his neighbour’s lights His guide his pride in oscillations frights Him in himself and in his neighbour’s eyes   Sees keenly his own faithlessness and frailties As another man’s, he owns his own noway Thus consequence is ever someone else’s problem That public […]

  • Capitalism and The Kingdom
