Trump and the Value of Money: What a history of Europe tells us about why liberals fail

The day Donald Trump announced that he had brokered a deal to keep Carrier in the United States, he also set the unprecedented standard of launching his official “thank you” tour in Cincinnati, Ohio returning to the US Bank Arena to announce that he was nominating Mad Dog Mattis to the Secretary of Defense position.  Never have the rifts between two political philosophies in America and throughout the world been so obvious, because later that same night at Harvard, one of Trump’s top advisors, Kellyanne Conway blasted members of the Clinton team who had lost the election recently when they continued to propose that values long-held since the beginning of human civilization still held merit.

Kellyanne and all members of the Trump team, including his supporters for which I am enthusiastically included proudly sunk the flag of capitalism deeply in the ground represented by the American flag and proposed that there would be no further wavering in the future.  The political left was dead and all that was left of them were these carcasses in denial.  An entirely new way of thinking in the human race was launching and we were seeing the beginning of it essentially in Cincinnati, Ohio.

I had been thinking of Thanksgiving and a lot about European history of late because my family is planning a trip to that part of the world soon—so the definitions presented were well in context. A lot of people don’t know it, but the leader of the pilgrims who came to Plymouth Rock for which we celebrate the Thanksgiving Day rituals and launched our capitalist version of the Holiday season in the states—which for me is always such an exciting time–was James Chilton who was born in the city of Canterbury, where my son-in-law is from in England.  It was he who commissioned the Mayflower to set sail for the New World to flee the politics of the of the Church of England and their rigid rules and ceremonies which were used by the King of England to unite the kingdom behind the great cathedral which loomed large over the town’s skyline.  Like my son-in-law looking for opportunities not tied to the limitations of state sponsored controls, James Chilton fled for reasons of religious freedom toward the unknown destinations of a savage land to be free of the limited scope of kingdom politics spoken through the efforts of the church.  As history well chronicled, it was that same cathedral in Canterbury where Sir Thomas Becket was assassinated by his former friend, King Henry the 2nd for which spawned the great literary classic, The Canterbury Tales.

You see dear reader, the goal of the mediaeval church, which is remarkably aligned with the modern progressive political movement—which is a direct evolution from communism—which descended of course from European mediaeval churches, which descended from the last remnants of the Roman Empire and so on—was to unite the masses behind statist mindsets for which solitary rulers and aristocrats rule over the minds of mankind.  The remnants of that thinking can be found on virtually every college campus, every political order around the world, and it originates in the period of European history where the Roman Empire pushed north to conquered the “barbarians” and “pagans” to leave behind the Catholic Church to institute state sponsored religion—which therefor controlled all aspects of human life.  When bishops developed a guilty complex at the Church of England in Canterbury, the king of the day whomever he may have been, killed the rebel and found a replacement who would do the king’s bidding behind a mask of God.  This is why the puritan James Chilton organized a movement to leave that picturesque town in England with all its security and solidifying ritual and migrated to the wild and woolly unknown of America to sit down with primitive Indians and carve out a new life for themselves.  After a few hundred years the descendants and followers of this puritan movement launched through rebellion the American concept led by philosophy shaped by Adam Smith economics and Thomas Paine’s conceptual thinking.  America was born out of a rejection of the European imposition of statism and the further conquests of the so-called nomads who lived in North America upon the arrival of the Europeans escaping this turmoil from their homeland which was a natural collision of cultures inevitably bound to occur—the West and the East.  The winner was those who followed the philosophy of Adam Smith.  The losers were those chained to collectivist philosophies rooted in statism—which the tribal nomads of North America were limited by through their Chinese and Siberian roots.  Out of anger against statism in Europe the more developed idea of free people evolved and the American culture spawned from that desire clashed with the nomads who had diffused from Asia into North America looking for food—but not inventing much of anything new philosophically—except a new form of religion—nature worship.

Understanding history in this way it is explained why modern progressives have aligned themselves with the crises of the vanquished Indian, whether it is in fighting the trademark of the NFL football team, the Washington Redskins, or the Dakota Access Pipeline where the media has sided with the Standing Rock Sioux Indians.  The real fight is against capitalism—the same capitalism proposed by Adam Smith—the capitalism and need for it which put Donald Trump in the White House.  For generations people saluted the flag and they took for granted the capitalism which made their lives so good in North America—and could solve many problems around the world, but after an increasing statist president in George W. Bush made that way through terrorism and war then an openly socialist president in Barack Obama, the American people had enough, and they turned to an unapologetic capitalist in Donald Trump—a guy who loved his large planes, his golden palace at the top of Trump Tower—and was the commander of the hit television show The Celebrity Apprentice who understood capitalism and how to make it work for America again.

Those on the other side, those against Trump in this election, are those who hate the value of money.  They don’t dislike what money can buy them, such as power, or luxury, but they despise that money represents value.  They hate what money means to an economy of individuals in the same way that the kings of England hated common people who dared to challenge their social status, or when the church dared to deviate away from being a voice of the state toward individual conciliation.  Progressives are against individual value and thus they hate that money is a means of representation of that value.  Trump’s ultimate audacity is that his wealth was built on “value,” as opposed to someone who gains wealth through an inheritance or through a state sponsored lottery.  If you put a million dollars in the pocket of a loser, they will lose all that money in a few years—which is how so many star athletes end up bankrupt a few years after their careers are over.  Money can’t give someone value, but it is a product of value.  For instance, a person of value can never be poor even if they lose all their money many times over.  But a person of little value can only camouflage their value with money to hide what losers they really are.  This is unfortunately from our European heritage—the progressive viewpoint—has been the dominate view of money and how it’s made.  It comes from those days where bishops held up the values of the kings and queens of England—and other places around Europe—until they fell out of favor with those monarchs.  The bishops thought they had power because they held the keys to religion.  The kings thought they had value because of some royal bloodline or social station when people like James Chilton and Sir Thomas Becket just wanted to be left alone to worship their God in peace and pursue their own prosperity—free of statist controls.

Trump standing on a stage in Cincinnati for the second time in two months was a direct product of that bold Mayflower move by Chilton so many years ago—and for the first time in human history was living free of any guilt generated by the state to control behavior.  Instead, Trump was growing beyond the state and the people of Ohio attending that rally were there to prop him up beyond those ancient limitations for the first time in any human being—to be in such a high office of political power.  So in the context of history, what Trump did on Thursday December 1st 2016 was remarkable.  There was a lot of effort which came before him and it culminated essentially with his long-needed election.  And now, from that poised platform we have a man who understands the value of money and how it builds a nation of people—and that the power comes from them, not the state.  Like the Bishop Becket from the long ago medieval Canterbury Cathedral he’s a rebel against the thrones of Europe.  He has transcended from a royal bloodline, or a religious leader into a creation of Adam Smith himself—and he is now in the most powerful high office in the world, and he’s not afraid to use it for good—as opposed to evil–defined by the values which govern money.

Liberals, those descendants of European statism, will claim that it is evil to not equally distribute wealth to the populations of the world—because to them, everyone has “equal” value as under the premise of collectivism for which kings rule, nobody is more powerful than their kings or queens be them President Obama or Hillary Clinton.  But in a free society, value is determined by merit and that is represented in a moral culture by money.  Not money stolen from someone else or given as a gift by someone else—but money earned through something produced—by being a productive citizen of the world. To those who work hard and long every day channeling their values into their efforts, they typically are wealthy if they do it long enough.  But the bum on the street will never be their equals if they spend their days chasing primal effects such as food and sex.  Such people will never be the equals to the captains of industry like those filling Donald Trump’s cabinet seats.  And he knows how to pick them, because he is like General Mattis—people who don’t understand what the word “failure” even means.  Trump’s White House team are the types of people ostracized by a progressive society pushed to the corners with rules and regulations in the same manner that Sir Thomas Becket was murdered for falling out of favor with King Henry the 2nd.  The hidden fear of all progressives is that the great secret of value will spew out revealing their belief in blood lines and aristocratic connections ruling the masses to be a hoax.  This is largely why my son-in-law left Canterbury as James Chilton had centuries before, for the hope of opportunity through freedom.  And it’s taken thousands of years to get their wish, but finally on a stage in Cincinnati on a cold December night—their dreams came true.  It was an extraordinary event.  Mankind will be changed forever.  Just watch!

Progressives and other liberals know what happened and they are in a state of panic because for the first time—ever—the rules of human conduct have changed and they no longer have anywhere to hide, and that’s a good thing.  The human race needs money to determine value and those who have stood in the way of that value need to be removed so that history no longer repeats itself in favor of aristocratic rule—but through the rule of the individual and the massive amount of work they produce when free from tyranny.  Work after all isn’t bad—it’s what happens when people are productive and for America to be Great Again, this long-held truth in North America must be instituted for all time—wrestled from the tight grasp of the progressives from history who are terrified of merit—because as a people—they know they have no real value without the mask of looted wealth to conceal their valueless traditions.

  1. The fundamental problem is that the Utopian Socialist totalitarians somehow think that the Islamic totalitarians can be appeased and eventually absorbed. Nothing could be further from the truth.
