I call this insanity for a simple reason: history has condemned socialism. No matter how many times it is tried, it has always failed. It always will. Socialism cannot work for a simple reason: it contradicts Natural Law. Yet, no matter how much clear and irrefutable evidence is presented, there are people who insist that socialism is the ideal. These people insist that the only reason it has not worked is because it has never been tried by ‘the right people.’ The implication here is that all those before were not ‘smart enough’ to make socialism work, but the current round of advocates are. And there is the insanity. These people are no smarter than anyone who came before them. In fact, evidence suggests they may be less intelligent. They are certainly less wise. But then, socialism is about one thing and one thing only: control of other people.
Now, if you happen o be one of those who are going to argue that I am the one who is wrong; if you are going to argue that the free market is the real problem; save your breath. We have not had a free market since the early 20th Century, so anything you try to tell me about how the free market has failed is going to be undermined by the fact that we have had some form of socialism for more than 100 years now. And socialism undermines the free market. The reality is that the only reason our nation has not failed long before now is because there were strong remnants of the free market still operating within this growing socialist economy. But we are now seeing the result of these socialist ideas. As the last vestiges of the free market are strangled and die, the historic result of all socialist economies is finally starting to manifest in America.
