You'll note that the figures are looking RIGHT. Not left.


Give me liberty or give me death! On second thought, just give me liberty. Ignore the last part of that "or" and let's focus on the liberty part.

Give me liberty or I shall take it! Hm. It's not exactly yours to give to me. It's mine and I'm keeping it.

Try to take my liberty and I'll kill you! That sounds kind of hostile. I probably won't kill you even though you're attacking me with the thousand cuts of nanny bureaucracy.

I think I'm moving in the wrong direction here. That last one sounds like Francis from the movie 'Stripes'.


Good catch, G. It's also remarkable how right is more right than left. That's just a fact. Makes you wonder why they would even pick left?


A minor quibble:

To me, the bull is not a symbol of capitalism; it is one of the symbols of corporatism.

I consider myself to be a fundamentalist free-market capitalist, but there are several elements of corporatism that are in direct conflict with capitalism.

Problem is, there's no universally accepted symbol for capitalism.

My nitpicking aside--nice rendering.

“Capitalism and communism stand at opposite poles. Their essential difference is this: The communist, seeing the rich man and his fine home, says: ‘No man should have so much.’ The capitalist, seeing the same thing, says: ‘All men should have as much.’” – Phelps Adams


Good quote and overall point, T.

I can see why you'd call the Bull corporatism, but roughly speaking, I interpret the Bull and Bear as expansion and contraction -- two sides of the same coin that is free market capitalism.

Ironically, it is our unwillingness to bear the Bear in a free market that is contributing to the absence of the Bull.

Perhaps the Bear is off the image to the right...
