Neither opia nor Rome was built in a day. re<e Enterprise-A n A merican Tradition Freedom of opportunity is the great American heritage. ; reeen'terprise is the American way. We Americans believe that the free enterprise system is •he" best way. to encourage and to develop new industries, to dvance art and science, to raise the American standard of i /ing, to distribute the most goods to the greatest number <: people at the lowest cost, and to assure the preservation •: our democratic form of government. We have never waiv- <-ed in this belief, ' In our free enterprise system, every man has the right to 5 arfc'his own business. He has the right to put his ideas and 3 ohey together, to take a chance on making money or losing i. He is limited only-by his imagination, his industry and fe-daring. But he also has the further right to expect that Me market will not be rigged against* him and that his com- j ititors will not be permitted to combine to destroy him. This is deep-rooted American tradition. It is our duty, our *j:ivilege,'to g*uard and to defend it. We must not-permit the <:ohomic system in which we believe, our system of free en- -tii-prise and opportunity with its attendant" civil' rights, to <feteriorate. We must not allow it to be robbed, of its vitality 4*4;of its blessings. Assaults upon it by the selfish must be, vith stood. There are those who would scuttle our way of life. These ireedymen clamor loudest for free enterprise and opportunity. Actually, they mean freedom for their*.own activities i—freedom to drive competitors from the market place. These ■men would have freedom for guaranteed profits and. safe markets with none of the risks inherent in our capitalistic system.- They would have freedom to insulate their business from the uncertainties of .competition and freedom to gorge themselves with monopolistic profits. They would play the game of restrictive agreements, * agreements which fix. arbitrary and unreasonable prices for the goods which they sell, agreements which -divide "markets in which their goods are sold, agreements which divide fields of production and sale, and agreements which suppress technological and .advance and new products. * These are not the freedoms to foster and protect in America., They are not freedom's at all.' They mean-ony license— license to,carry a business blackjack-in a.communityNwhere -'other -citizens go unarmed, -The Americait business" man has a personal and vital interest! in the preservation of the American system of free enterprise,'free opportunity and free men. His future as an independent business man depends upon vigorous, night and | day. enforcement of the antitrust laws.- For it is with their 1 continued support and assistance in enforcing: our basie ecfori- \oinic taw.that the American business scene will remain free for enterprise and open for opportunity-.
