ACCEPTABLE RIGHT WING IDEOLOGY
This is the second of about a dozen planned papers designed to list the ideology, and (where applicable) the manifestations of such ideology, for most all political leanings. They will start with the Acceptable ideologues and work through to the Fanatical ideologies over the next few weeks.
Please refer to the political chart at – http://civismundi.net/civismundi.php?p=06-Political+Chart It is a bit dated but it is available for anyone to take and improve.
“The entrepreneur is our visionary, the creator in each of us. We’re born with that quality and it defines our lives as we respond to what we see, hear, feel, and experience. It is developed, nurtured, and given space to flourish or is squelched, thwarted, without air or stimulation, and dies.” Michael Gerber
“Nobody talks of entrepreneurship as survival, but that’s exactly what it is and what nurtures creative thinking.” — Anita Roddick
Definition of Entrepreneur – American Heritage dictionary:
A person who organizes, operates, and assumes the risk for a business venture.
Graph Title: Entrepreneurialism = position on my political chart
I would like to think that this name includes everyone who sees big and small business and all entrepreneurial ventures as worthy of a political ideology. It also includes everyone who aspires to be with the group at some time in the future.
This is a word borrowed from the French to designate an individual who has a drive to innovate, create, invent, and lead. This person assumes the responsibilities of Capital risk, of management, of organization of any economic enterprise.
This person is distinct from an ordinary manager who assumes the administration of an existing business or enterprise without any real knowledge behind the venture.
Basic Ideology of the Entrepreneur: (not obligations)
- The right to use capital to make capital.
- The right to incorporate the enterprise.
- The right to take a risk with his or her own money.
- The right to make a profit.
- The right to hire people for wages or salary.
- The right to discipline employees.
- The right to discharge people who do not meet minimum expectations.
- The right to keep the benefits of his or her endeavour.
- The right to take advantage of new innovations and processes.
- The right to modify objectives.
- The right to define working hours.
- The right to produce 24/7 if necessary.
- The right to sell all or portions of his/her venture.
- The right to take partners
- The right to sell shares in the business
The Entrepreneur’s competitive spirit and creativity was, and is, the human force behind western advancement. The entrepreneur, and his financial backers, assumes this financial risk and face economic loss if the creativity is flawed in any way. Years of creative thinking, development, and planning are all wasted if the venture fails.
The important function of this individual has declined somewhat with the advance of major corporations, however small business endeavours still provide greater employment than the major corporations.
I have placed this ideology opposite Labourism, as it is the corresponding and complementing component that provides the prosperity of our cultures.
Both ideologies should be regarded as critical, and respected, components of our individual societies.
Entrepreneurialism is to be admired as much as those who labour within this concept. Everyone dreams of financial success within the business/labour framework, as both are essential components of the whole.
Common sense and reasoning suggests that we have reached another place on the graph that is totally acceptable to the average person. Once again – people being the way they are, we can expect that there will be equal suspicion, and distrust, from both sides of centre. Ergo – Democracy
