Our domestic enemies, the vast majority of which vote for Democrats, keep striving to enact socialism upon our nation. But, as history and current events keep showing us, socialism is not just a failure as an economic system, it is failure. It has never worked at above the township level and, barring a dramatic change in human nature, it never will.
OK, maybe under our future AI overlords and their robotic enforcers it might work. But we’re not there yet.
Socialism is just a way for incompetent and/or corrupt politicians and political parties to get themselves elected by swearing to give their proles “the other guy’s money.” It doesn’t solve any problems. In fact, it causes more because the wealthy and productive emigrate out of those failed states as soon as they can. This is something that California has already found out and are using their version of the Reich Flight Tax (Reichsfluchtsteuer) to ameliorate the effects of.
Socialism and its offers of “social programs” are just an indication that the government in question is made up of politically incompetent or corrupt individuals, and is unable or unwilling to offer real solutions to political crises, both real and manufactured; instead, throwing the other guy’s money at the whatever the situation is or is declared to be.
As I said, socialism is failure and the admission of such when enacted by an existing government.
