What lunacy be this?

Truly, what nonsense be this?

The answer, is that its the type of nonsense now in charge of our government, and I postulate that the majority of Americans do not agree with the impact of policies born of this sadly defunct mindset. The following quote comes to mind as part of my response to this advertisement:

"The price of freedom is eternal vigilance." --Thomas Jefferson.

Clearly, vigilance was meant against those such as these. Those who are woefully misguided on the basics of economics, conned into believing that life was better and somehow more "moral" prior to the advent of that terrible system called capitalism, and that the forced destruction of said system would improve the quality of life for all. Alas, if only we could flip a switch and return to the tribal days. Or at least our feudal era. Ah nostalgia.

Not that such archaic systems could support our population, meaning that many of these young people shown above would not have been given the opportunity to even in the absence our modern free societies. The possibilities created by the post industrial system have proven to be boundless over the past few centuries, but without proper education they nonetheless go unappreciated. Explaining how lunacy such as that witness'd above can be feasible. Bringing to mind another widely cited quote:

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."--Edmond Burke

Education. That is the key. In this time of tumult and crisis, those who believe in freedom cannot afford to remain silent. It is the only manner by which we can hope to stop the damage caused by those who have been ill educated on why the modern era is the best in history, and why their ideas are a regress towards depressing conditions.

For the greatest depression the world has ever known, was not the one in the 1930s that lasted for 15 years. Nigh, its the one that lasted for 10,000 years. The depression that was the pre-industrial world.
