"Poverty has no causes. Only prosperity has causes."
– Jane Jacobs
That cause is Freedom, which enables economic development. With oppression you get poverty. Socialism does that.
Freedom has causes
Freedom requires Self-government – "government of the people, by the people, for the people", the Rule of Law, a Government limited by a Constitution beyond its power to change, with that Constitution designed to protect Individual Rights.
All else – democracy, socialism, dictatorship by any name, anarchy, riots – brings destruction and misery.
Without America, there is no Free World
"Standing up for the Constitution and freedom is work that lies ahead for all Americans." – Justice Alito, 12 November 2020
