Fourth Annual Worldwide Celebrate Capitalism Day, Sunday, June 6, 2004

This Sunday, June 6, 2004 at noon, the fourth annual Celebrate Capitalism walk will begin at the steps of Federal Hall to promote and celebrate the benefit to mankind that comes from the freedom inherent in capitalism. The walk will be just one of the Celebrate Capitalism events taking place in more than 150 cities and 46 countries on this day. From Belgium to Brazil, individuals will express their enthusiasm for capitalism through walks, music, speakers and more.

They are individuals as excited about capitalism as the event's founder Prodos, an Australian internet radio host who wants the day to be for "people of every walk of life and from every corner of the globe." "It's a day," he says, "to thank the Producers and Creators -human kind's great benefactors and to praise their achievements, independence of thought and their courage in following their dreams in order to uphold the only political system which makes all this possible. Capitalism."

A system founded upon freedom and creativity. And it's the life-affirming ideal of Celebrate Capitalism that through this system, the quality of life for all people is made better. As Prodos says, "the rich get richer, the poor get richer." It's an ideal passed down to us by pro-capitalist thinkers like Ayn Rand, Adam Smith and Thomas Jefferson. And it's highlighted in The Bernstein Declaration, Celebrate Capitalism's official position statement, written by New York-based philosopher and novelist Dr. Andrew Bernstein, now translated into more than 20 languages making it the most widely translated pro-capitalism literature ever and is available at http://www.CelebrateCapitalism.ORG/bernsteindeclaration. It reads, "It is no accident that man's freest periods have seen his greatest achievements. From the Golden Age of Athens to the Italian Renaissance to the technological and industrial breakthroughs of the United States, the freedom of man's mind has led to magnificent advances in philosophy."

Whether it's been the gathering of 40 people in Poland or Perth, Australia's union of two for the cause of capitalism, those involved in Celebrate Capitalism in previous years have seen the value of the marriage of belief and action. New Yorkers will see it again during their walk which starts at the Federal Hall steps, overlooking the NY stock Exchange and the JP Morgan building. It will commence after a brief speech on how these two institutions helped other institutions in America, before winding through capitalism's monument, the financial district of NYC and arriving at Old U.S. Customs House, (1 Bowling Green, across the street from the Bowling Green train station) where speakers will share of the happiness and prosperity that comes from the freedom of capitalism.

This walk will commence on the steps of Federal Hall, near George Washington's statue, which overlooks two major hallmarks of capitalism: the NY Stock Exchange and the JP Morgan building. We will celebrate the heroic achievements of those two institutions with a brief speech on how they helped finance the great industries of America.

Then we will walk through the heart of capitalism's greatest monument: the financial district of NYC. We will end up at the steps of the Old U.S. Customs House, 1 Bowling Green, across the street from the Bowling Green train station, where we will have more speeches about the virtues, requirements and achievements of capitalism, i.e., independent thinking, liberty, prosperity and human happiness. The event will end at approximately 1pm.
