Doug Valentine is disappointing

I came here because of the Whitney Webb Epstein exposés and regrettably listened to an interview with Doug Valentine a man whom Whitney used for some of the research on her pieces.

This man begins the interview by Informing us that socialism and communism are better than capitalism and assuming that the CIA With all of it evil deeds is a natural product of capitalism.

It’s hard to imagine after his research that he still believes that communism would be some kind of just system and hasn’t caused tragic loss of human life in the last century alone. Hundreds of millions dead.

There are in fact many Capitalists and business owners who would balk at the idea of using government power to get an advantage over another business or a person, myself included.

It is not that business or Commerce is bad. It is the relationship between business and government that causes all of the corruption and should be considered treasonous. Promoting the idea that all means of production should be controlled by the state (communism) should also be considered treason.

Being free to work for ourselves (capitalism) without IS actual freedom.

Please do not confuse corrupt politicians selling power, favors and force to force to special interests as capitalism. This is GANGSTERISM and most businesses do not engage in such unsavory actions.

Communism and Socialism is NOT the answer. Illuminating and breaking the link between governmental power and business IS the answer.

Liberty is the answer not more Totalitarianism.

*Facepalm*

Valuable program

Solid content, I like the calm informational style. The episode with Joshua Landis was excellent, packed a lot of vital info into 36 minutes! More valuable than some much longer shows. Loved the Danny Sjursen interview too.

Keep it up!
