Viva el Socialismo

The wages of sin are death or so it is said (Romans 6:23). The wages of Socialism are…wait! what wages?

Long Live Socialism!
Viva el Socialismo – #SentirElBern

Yes, Venezuela’s attempt at Socialism has, not in the least unexpectedly, ended in total economic collapse and mass starvation and persistent, bloody societal upheaval. Argentina and Brazil are not far behind.

This is obviously not something that Bernie Sanders wants to comment upon. Hillary Clinton wouldn’t wish to either since her agenda differs from Bernie’s only in the speed of its implementation and the race and gender specifics for that implementation.

But none of the above means that socialism provides no benefits. There’s an upside to it.

Socialism Does Have An Upside

And yes! That upside is the new and growing plethora of Venezuelan babes – and Venezuela has many beautiful women – who are now rethinking their personal economics, virtue, and futures. 😉

Heck! With manufacturing and production essentially defunct in Venezuela, moving into the service industries makes good sense for these women. It’d certainly bring in a much needed influx of foreign capital.

Socialism’s Upside

And, if combined with well-reasoned immigration reform, this could be a real win-win situation. Admittedly though, given global economics and exchange rates, I’d favor a somewhat more managed economic approach over a fully free market one. Renewal resources or not, I’d never advocate a completely predatory extraction model. 😉

Oh! And for those of you reading this who are already screaming in rage or are about to, you need to “check your privilege.” In all statistical likelihood, your from the Developed World; it’s even probable that your in America. Hence, not only are you one of the Global 1%, you’ve also never even seen real poverty beyond a few sanitized commercials for charities.

Well, He Asked For It

And here we see a stupid thug forgetting to be careful about what one asks for lest you receive it in full measure.

Well, He Asked For it

And….SPLAT! 😆 This is most definitely one of the most poetically funny videos I’ve ever seen. That is exactly how the immediate response by law enforcement to these thugs should be.

Thus Did We Die

The flag flies at half staff over land in mourning for the passing of AmericaIt is a simple fact, proven time and time again by history, that most nations fall through the actions of others, not through their own, though it is also proven true that in many cases it is actions of their own that hastened or guaranteed their destruction by their foreign enemies. In all truth, it has always been an extreme rarity – and exceptional historical event – for any nation to truly fall and be destroyed by itself. In the normal course of events, the self-harm of a nation leads to its destruction but is not the actual, proximal cause of it.

And yet, we of the West are so very exceptional.

The nations and peoples of Western Civilization – in the modern era, the bastion of the Civilized World – are exceptional to the point of near uniqueness. We, lacking foreign enemies with both the will and the means to bring about of destruction and extermination, have chosen to breed, raise, and train our own destroyers.

So the final conclusion would surely be that whereas other civilizations have been brought down by attacks of barbarians from without, ours had the unique distinction of training its own destroyers at its own educational institutions, and then providing them with facilities for propagating their destructive ideology far and wide, all at the public expense. Thus did Western Man decide to abolish himself, creating his own boredom out of his own affluence, his own vulnerability out of his own strength, his own impotence out of his own erotomania, himself blowing the trumpet that brought the walls of his own city tumbling down, and having convinced himself that he was too numerous, labored with pill and scalpel and syringe to make himself fewer. Until at last, having educated himself into imbecility, and polluted and drugged himself into stupefaction, he keeled over–a weary, battered old brontosaurus–and became extinct.

Malcolm Muggeridge

One need only open one’s eyes and look around in to see that Mr. Muggeridge was not wrong. No, Mr. Muggeridge’s prediction seems more rational than cynical these days, decades after he made it, as any with any level of objective awareness can see.
