Immigrant Warns America About Socialism

From USA Today:

The first time I couldn’t buy food at the grocery store, I was 15 years old. It was 2014 in Caracas, Venezuela, and I had spent more than an hour in line waiting. When I got to the register, I noticed I had forgotten my ID that day. Without the ID, the government rationing system would not let the supermarket sell my family the full quota of food we needed. It was four days until the government allowed me to buy more.

My family and I suffered from blackouts and lack of water. The regime nationalized electricity in 2007 in an effort to make electricity “free.” Unsurprisingly, this resulted in underinvestment in the electrical grid. By 2016, my home lost power roughly once a week.

South Africa Looks To Gun Confiscation

From Zero Hedge:

The Constitutional Court of South Africa recently ruled that 300,000 gun owners must turn in their firearms.

No matter how socialist apologists rationalize it, the redistributionist agenda the South African government is pursuing will not be implemented passively. Ultimately, it must be carried out by force.

The kind of force socialists seek is a monopolized kind, which extreme forms of gun control like gun confiscation help facilitate.

Why does Socialism Fail?

Go out and get your own fish. Don't sit around expecting someone to hand it to you.

Socialism as an economic utility does not fail because of the rewards given to the masses for less work, effort, talent or ability.

Socialism fails because it refuses to accept the possibility of failure.

It does not punish the lazy or inept shiftless drones who refuse to act for their own benefit. Instead, it mandates all are equal legally (good) and thus equal monetarily, intellectually (bad).

The entire purpose of government and any economic system is to enable them to live as peaceably and fruitful as possible while being just.

It cannot be just to mandate tribute for the sake of someone else and then use force to defend this statute. A society cannot be considered peaceful if it’s citizens are under the constant threat of force.

Socialism fails not because it gives – it fails because it takes.

It will not matter how many nations submit to a socialized economic model, none of this can stop laziness and lethargy.

You want a brighter, leaner, more capable America? Stop taking from the deserving and giving to the undeserving.

Start demanding that people, like every other fucking organism on the planet, earn their happiness, their food, their livelihood.

Why does Socialism fail? Economics class experiment

An economics professor said he had never failed a single student before but had, once, failed an entire class.

That class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said ok, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism.

All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A.

After the first test the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.

But, as the second test rolled around, the students who studied only a little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too; so they studied less than what they had. The second test average was a D!

No one was happy.

When the 3rd test rolled around the average was an F.

The scores never increased as bickering, blame, name calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.

All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great; but when government takes all the reward away; no one will try or want to succeed.
