The Sixth Step toward Riches


We often hear politicians proclaiming the freedom of America when they

solicit votes, but seldom do they take the time or devite sufficient effort

to the analysis of the source or nature of this "freedom."  Having no axe to

grind, no grudge to express, no ulterior motives to be carried out, I have the

privilege of going into a frank analysis of that mysterious, abstract, greatly

misunderstood "SOMETHING" which gives to every citizen of America

more blessings, mor oopportunities to accumulate wealth, more freedom of

every nature, than may be found in any other country.

I have the right to analyze the source and nature of this UNSEEN

POWER, because I know, and have known for more than a quarter of a

century, many of the men who organized that power, and many who are

now responsible for its maintenance.

The name of this mysterious benefactor of mankind is CAPITAL!

CAPITALL consists not alone of money, but more particularly of highly

organized, intelligent groups of men who plan ways and means of using

money efficiently for the good of the public, and profitably to themselves.

These groups consist of scientists, educataors, chemists, inventors, business

analysts, publicity men, transportation experts, accountants, lawyers, doctors

and both men and women who have highy specialized knowledge in all 

fields of industry and business.  They pioneer, experiment, and blaze 

trails in new fields of endeavor.  They support colleges, hospitals, and public

schools, build good roads, publish newspapers, pay most of the cost of

goveernment, and take care of the multiudinous detail essential to human

progress.  Stated briefly, the capitalists are the brains of civilization, because

they supply the entire fabric of which all education, enlightenment, and 

human progress consists.

Money, without brains, always is dangerous.  Properly used, it is the most

important essential of civilization.........................

Without organized capital provided for machinery, the ships, the railroads,

and the huge armies of trained men to operate them -- We would not have the

food found in our supermarkets from all parts of the world.

Thanks to Michael and Linda Dlouhy for providing this platform for all of us to 

learn and grow into the people that we were meant to become.

Love to all
