Commentary by Charles Hugh Smith

“Free enterprise” – I know that exists for small business people…when they’re not being pounded into the ground by taxes, fees and government regulations.

Selling fraudulent securities? No problem.

Packaging poisons as food? No problem.

Defrauding the Pentagon to the tunes of hundreds of billions of dollars? No problem.

What it Bob Dylan said “When you steal a little, they call you thief. When you steal a lot, they call you King.”
