I started a small print publication with some friends of mine several years ago, and we decided to call it the “Free Capitalist.” After that, I started a radio show in 2004, where people started calling me “the Free Capitalist.” The moniker stuck. So, in the simplest sense, the “Free Capitalist Project” is my project. It is what I am up to, a general umbrella description for my chief aim.
Over the years, the “project” has been more formal or less formal depending upon the circumstance. In December of 2003, I organized the Free Capitalist Project is a non-partisan, civic service organization, made up of a private formal membership consisting of adult men and women committed to the cause of human liberty and prosperity. We advocate the principles of capitalism as the moral basis for free society. Our members quickly spread throughout the United States and abroad into several countries. By far our largest numbers have been concentrated primarily in the western United States. Members are private citizens, students, workers, entrepreneurs, business owners and public officials who are committed to the values and mission of the project.
The mission of the Free Capitalist Project is:
To advance freedom and prosperity through civic service, ushering forth a moral revolution to sanction and complete the political achievement of the American Revolution.
A defining characteristic of the project is its steadfast commitment to assisting individuals in their own personal efforts to live a principle-centered life, established upon a sound economic foundation, as a necessary prerequisite to meaningful citizenship.
One Fundamental Premise of the Free Capitalist Project is that:
“The fostering of full economic freedom lies at the base of our liberties.” — David O. McKay
A person or a society locked in serious financial bondage ultimately loses all other freedoms. A slave, while he may muse over the contemplated blessings of liberty, is still a slave. Accordingly, it will take a free people to ensure the survival and ultimate healing of our Republic; and to become free, a large, statistically significant segment of the population must learn how to act upon those ancient principles of prosperity rediscovered by America’s Founders. These individuals must become producers in mind and in deed so that as they become economically free they can successfully advocate principle—based solutions in their own lives, in their families, and in their communities. ‘Only in perpetuating economic freedom can our social, political, and religious liberties be preserved…’
Political initiatives, grass roots reforms, and legislative agendas by themselves have proven to add only fuel to the fire. The solution for us, is as it was in the beginning, a principle-based defense of freedom—a revolution.
All members of the Free Capitalist Project participate in locally organized community based study groups, roundtables, and community forums.
“The elementary republics of the wards, the county republics, the State republics, and the republic of the Union, would form a gradation of authorities, standing each on the basis of law, holding every one its delegates share of powers, and constituting truly a system of fundamental balances and checks for the government. Here every man is a sharer in the direction of his ward-republic, or of some of the higher ones, and feels that he is a participator in the government of affairs, not merely at an election one day in the year, but every day; when there shall not be a man in the State who will not be a member of some of its councils, great or small, he will let the heart be torn out of his body sooner than his power be wrested from him by a Caesar or a Bonaparte.” — Thomas Jefferson
