Capitalism is When Uber Gets to You Before the Police Does

It’s never a bad day to take pause and appreciate the miracles of capitalism. Then again, even referring to the unprecedented technological developments that have improved our lives over the past century as “miracles” is a disservice to what they actually are — the unleashed products of human imagination and ingenuity.

Capitalism isn’t a miracle — quite the opposite. To call it that is to suggest that daily conveniences like Uber, food deliveries, fuel-efficient cars, and computers that fit into your pockets were just happy accidents. That isn’t the case. All of these developments were entirely deliberate because there was a vested interest from those responsible to improve both their own lives and the lives of everyone around them.

Free markets combined with a profit motive incentivize individuals to invent and adapt to a changing culture. This is why an Uber driver didn’t care about having to trudge through some snow to make a couple more bucks that day, when the police in question couldn’t care less. What reason do you have to care if everything you do is paid for by the taxpayer anyway?
