If you drive us out, send us into the herd of pigs.” He said to them, “Go!”

So they came out and went into the pigs, and the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the lake and died in the water.

Matthew 8:31-32

The decision of Kristi Noem, Republican Governor of South Dakota, to encourage 7,500 ticket holders to join Donald Trump’s pre-Independence Day rally with no social distancing and no face masks contrasts starkly with the chaotic news of the spread of the virus and new deaths coming from the United States: including Dr Fauci’s prediction of 180,000 deaths by October.

It illustrates how physically dangerous the presidential election will be for Americans, because clearly Mr Trump cannot resist the temptation to appeal physically to the herd mentality.

Perhaps he and Bolsanaro in Brazil would argue that, as we predicted on 2 March 2020, they are pursuing herd immunity as the only way to address the virus - and the devil take the hindmost.

The jury is surely out on that question, as Boris clearly recognises in his plea for people to act responsibly.

St. Paul's besieged

Welcome to Gavin Oldham's full presentation describing his vision for egalitarian capitalism.

The main set of proposals are as follows:

Egalitarian Capitalism is an alternative to socialism which, while fostering and encouraging enterprise for all, acts to involve and empower people right across society and especially the young. 

Six key steps of egalitarian capitalism

  1. A proper programme of financial education to help people from all walks of life to build a personal store of freely disposable assets.
  2. Setting the conditions for disinter-mediation, in particular reducing the extent of parasitic inter-mediation which separates people from a sense of ownership and control.
  3. Direct share ownership: drawing together employee, consumer and share-owner, providing much improved corporate governance so that individual share-owners can participate fully in the companies in which they have chosen to invest.
  4. Calls for risk to be properly recognised when setting taxation on reward. This means encouraging innovation and continuing to recognise the risks taken by self-employed people.
  5. Addresses inter-generational equity, introducing a programme of incentivised financial learning for the disadvantaged young, fuelled from inheritance tax receipts, to enable them to achieve their full potential in adult life.
  6. Tackles one of the most difficult issues for democratic capitalism: universal benefits. It proposes a new voluntary approach for higher taxpayers to make discretionary payments for using universal, state-run services.
