The Free Market Warrior

Our Guest: Loren Spivack

Loren Spivack “The Free Market Warrior” was born and raised in Massachusetts and spent most of his adult life in New York City. Before becoming active in politics, Spivack worked for several non-profits and as a management consultant for both profit and non-profit companies.

Spivack founded “Free Market Warrior” in 2009 in an effort to make a positive difference in American politics and economics.

His “Free Market Warrior” store was expelled from Concord Mills Mall in North Carolina in July of 2009 for selling material critical of the Obama Administration. (Mall owners, Simon Property Group, are major Democratic donors.) Since then Loren has devoted his time to teaching conservative groups about free market economics.

He conducts "Economic Literacy" seminars across the United States. So far, Spivack has delivered his famous seminar on “Economic Literacy” to over 200 groups in 20 states.

Spivack is also the author of “The New Democrat” a parody history of the Obama administration, based on a famous children's book. With pitch-perfect rhyme and clever illustrations, "The New Democrat” transforms the political personalities of our times into cartoon characters in a conservative morality play.

Spivack’s second book “The Gorax” is an anti-environmentalism/pro capitalism parody starring Al Gore and presenting his movement as a threat to American freedom and standard of living. Once again Spivack is both funny and poignant as he makes the case that capitalism (represented by the “Onepercentler”) is the real victim of environmental extremists who destroy prosperity without achieving even their own goals. Along the way, Spivack takes well aimed shots at everything from “The Fed” to the teachers unions. “The Gorax” came out on July 1, 2013.

The Wizard of Iz, is a masterpiece of conservative humor and inspiration. When a tornado blows Dorothy from her constitutionally governed America (circa 1900) into the 2016 election (her house lands on Obama.) she must rescue the "Free-Lunchkins" from the slavery of welfare dependence, Save the brainless scarecrow from the mindless indoctrinations of graduate school and help the cowardly RINO find some courage. Our heroes must ford the main stream, under the medias threatening glare, stop the "Wicked Witch of Chappaqua" and, ultimately learn the secret to restoring America, from a most unlikely source!

Some people claim that Frank L. Baum's masterpiece, "The Wizard of OZ," is a political allegory touching on many issues of his day. But the broad themes, of remote and oppressive government, celebrity politicians with more style than substance (and even less principle,) applies to our times as much as his. Indeed, our modern political culture, where the skill of marketing and campaigning is all and wisdom of governance is nothing, fairly begs to be parodied.

Ultimately, "OZ" is about dishonesty and credulity. The politician, whose skill at the former best matches the electorate's propensity for the latter, wins. Good triumphs only when the regular people learn the truth and the demagogues are undone by their own inherent vulnerabilities. The Witch's susceptibility to water is an allegorical rendering of the Wizard's fall from the pedestal when the curtain is pulled back. Both are really nothing, without the ability to deceive.

In our time, The Wizard's smoke and mirrors seem positively quaint. Today we are deceived by world class experts. Can our generation tear down the facade and redeem the simple truths that made America free? Let's find out.
