American Enterprise President Arthur Brooks, in his book The Road To Freedom, argues that conservatives must fight for the free enterprise system by talking about it in moral terms.
In an exclusive video for Breitbart News, Brooks debunks the notion that the free enterprise system is a form of social Darwinism.
“There’s nothing that’s socially Darwinistic about free enterprise,” Brooks says. “Free enterprise means we must work together as people and lift each other up. If you’re an entrepreneur, you need customers, you have to treat them right, and your customers need you. You need employees, you have to treat them right, and your employees need you.”
Brooks reminds liberals that the free enterprise system allows people to “work together best when they’re interconnected in their needs and wants.”
“We have figured out, without any government control, that we can work together for mutual benefit,” Brooks continues. “That’s the reason we’re a happy, prosperous country, and not just in money — in all the stuff that really matters. Free enterprise makes us a better, happier, more interdependent society.”
If liberals try to make the case that free enterprise is socially darwinistic over Memorial Day weekend, use the arguments Brooks lays out in this video to convince them otherwise.
