Raquel Okyay Interview Senate Candidate Invictus & DHS WWIII Expert
CRITICAL REVIEW OF CAPITALISM AND COMMUNISM
Tampa – U.S. Senate Candidate, Augustus Sol Invictus, will be a guest speaker on Sat. Nov. 21 at The Young Americans for Liberty-sponsored event at the University of South Florida in Tampa. The forum, which includes other speakers from the Libertarian and the Republican parties, is from Noon to 4pm in the Marshall Student Center, 4103 USF Cedar Drive, room 2709.
“The lecture will argue that the choice between absolute economic opportunity and absolute economic equality is a false one and that capitalism and communism are not so much warring camps as they are two sides of the same coin, much like Republicans and Democrats, business owners and philanthropists, cops and gangsters,” said Invictus.
This will not be the usual Libertarian presentation, he said. “If people don’t look critically at capitalism, it is not different than the religious dogma they accuse communists of embracing.” He said history shows virulent opposition to the false dichotomy of both capitalism and socialism.
“Throughout the Cold War, the struggle between capitalism and communism so dominated the globe that anyone who did not choose one of these two economic systems became part of the Third World,” he said. “Today we see neo-reactionaries, anarchists, and many other third rail groups rejecting the false dichotomy of capitalism and communism even in the face of political non-existence.”
Invictus said, “I will consider the definitions and philosophical roots of capitalism and socialism, as well as its expressions in modern American political culture. But it will also address their main similarity: the reduction of the human experience to monetary value.”
