The Mayflower Compact and Small Business Success

By Economy, Small Business, Success

Episode #13 – In this episode, Barry Farah tells the story of the Mayflower Compact, who wrote it and why. The Compact was to be signed by those on the Mayflower who wished to remain in the New World. The Mayflower Compact uniquely implemented the concept of equal treatment for all under the law. This idea enabled a whole new way of life and doing business in this New World and ultimately influenced our Constitution. Barry Farah describes how unique America has been in the world in respecting private property rights. This led to unprecedented legal immigration for decades as people sought the opportunity that could only be found in this America. Barry Farah conveys the government’s recent shift toward picking winners and losers in the marketplace during the COVID-inspired shutdowns. Barry expresses the need for our country to find its way back, allowing small companies to have the same access and equal treatment, which led to our success in the first place.

You Should Be Free to Succeed

By Freedom, Success

Episode #12 – In this episode of Culture Shift, Barry Farah explains the real secret of success. Many best-selling books and speakers have covered the topic of success. Barry unveils the importance of America in establishing an environment of economic freedom that unlocked the potential for success never before seen in history. Individual liberty was first acknowledged in government in the 1200s through the Magna Carta, and in the Bible when God created man and woman to be productive. Barry Farah shares the story of his grandad’s immigration to the United States in the early 1900s and his patriotism as a child. Economic freedom is personal to each of us and Barry makes the point that we own our own labor. Government is to govern at the consent of the governed, and we are to be free to produce and not have our rights to our own productivity infringed. Barry Farah makes the point that this is the American Dream, and it is unique in the world. We have the right to pursue our own happiness and that right is granted to us by God, not the government. Barry ends this episode with a game you can play to capture the essence of the free market game you can play to capture the essence of the free market.
