Doug Owen, co-founder of Oracle Broadcasting, host of Blacklisted Radio and Webmaster of Blacklisted News, was a guest on the June 27, 2012 episode of Live Free or Die Radio with Lee Rogers, and said (at 2:27:37):

If you haven’t had a chance to, you should check out Jason Erb’s show on Sundays at noon (Central) here on the Oracle Broadcasting Network. I listened to it last week — riveting, and it’s all about money. He talks about exposing Faux Capitalism — that is the whole crux of his show.

American flag

Appearing on the May 27, 2012 episode of The Progressive Radio News Hour with Stephen Lendman, guest John Kozy declared (at 30:09):

When Hillary Clinton said that she thought that America was still a force for good in the world, I almost puked. I mean, it was never been a force for good in the world.

I know how easy it is to be down on America, especially from within its [k]ozy confines, but to say that it has never been a force for good in the world is something that even self-avowed communist, Slavoj Zizek, wouldn’t agree with, when he said “[c]apitalism is the most productive social order in the history of humanity,” with America being the lead promoter of capitalism since WWII, as opposed to free enterprise, which it was initially built upon and what brought it real prosperity as opposed to the illusory prosperity that will soon become evident as this decade unfolds.

A caller to The Bob Tuskin Show on Oracle Broadcasting made an excellent point about free enterprise versus capitalism on the November 10, 2011 episode (starting at 1:38:25):

A lot of Americans don’t realize that this country was never a capitalist country; it’s a free enterprise country. Ah, capitalism was thrown around and sold to the public, the same way most Americans are saying, ‘we’re a democracy.’ The United States is not a democracy; it’s a republic. Capitalism is this, another ‘ism’ that was created to eat up the free enterprise and create a monopoly.

Slavoj Zizek is here. He is a philosopher who describes himself as a complicated communist.

Now, here’s why:

At 17:24:

The 20th century communism was — it did some good things here and there: universal education, blah, blah — but basically, let’s face it — it was a fiasco.

At 20:41:

I’m not just blindly anti-capitalism, let’s be serious. Capitalism is the most productive social order in the history of humanity.

“I’d like to say that FauxCapitalist has deleted nothing I have posted – which is a rare thing amongst conspiracists. Most of them delete any and all dissent – FC has not.

Thanks.”

“having read almost all of FauxCapitalist’s posts I need to say that he is a VERY keen observer! He is a very critical person to begin with, so he is also critical of Enenews to begin with, which is a) his right and therefore fine and good, and b) understandable because of its anonymity.”

“Our political arena has become nothing more than sides wanting to win power without regard to cooperation, core principles, or consequences of their actions. While I don’t often agree with everything that you post, I whole-heartedly agree with you in this case.”

The Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary defines capitalism as “an economic system characterized by private or corporate ownership of capital goods, by investments that are determined by private decision, and by prices, production, and the distribution of goods that are determined mainly by competition in a free market.”

Faux capitalism, therefore, is anything masquerading as capitalism, but isn’t capitalism.
