These people either know what they are doing and are engaging in flat out evil or they are horribly deluded and are engaging in flat out evil. Either way it is disgusting. Perhaps they should consider all the people who were tortured to death, or starved to death, or sent out into the killing fields under communism. But they probably have, and they don’t care. The fact that socialism/communism is a death cult that creates social injustice is lost on these likely privileged college students.
This was another era at MSNBC.
Alexander Hamilton is the Founding Father of Crony Capitalism in America.
That we have a government owned – government owned – passenger rail line in this country really is an affront to what this country is supposed to stand for. Either it should be private, or it should not be. I mean if it’s not profitable why do we have it? Is it just that some members of Congress have a thing for trains and socialism? Well, yes, that is the case. But the Amtrak employees aren’t very keen on privatization either.
Big government is a religion. It is a failed, 20th Century religion built on a foundation of mythology and hope for heaven on earth.
Socialism is a cult of materialism that has enticed many of the best minds of the West over the last century it must be acknowledged however. But belief in the socialist dream is largely a reflection of a broad fashion, a meta-narrative that most socialists don’t (in my experience anyway) know they operate in.
Sweden was once one of the freest and most dynamic countries in Europe. The middle class expanded (from practically nothing) as industrialization grew. In the wake of World War 2 however it – along with much of Europe – adopted an almost “socialist” path. As such the economy stagnated over time culminating in the economic crisis of the early 1990s.
Since that time Sweden has steadly introduced market oriented reforms. In fact, in Sweden the trend is away from socialism,
This is a completely unscientific survey but it is interesting nonetheless. And this is the “socialism” subreddit on Reddit, so let’s just say there’s probably a bias toward living in one’s mom’s basement generally.
Frankly, it could have been worse.
Of course one can. We do. Alt-right national socialists, alt-left socialist socialists, both groups deny the importance of the individual and celebrate collectivism. They both worship the state. They both live for the hive.
That ain’t what ‘Merica stands for in my opinion.
From 2012 by a friend of Against Crony Capitalism. If you really want to understand crony capitalism (and fascism) read this piece. It’s long. It’s challenging. But it is high quality reading.
Fascism is real. It is here. And it is not what many people think it is.
First The Washington Post sounds halfway rational on the minimum wage issue. And now this from the LA Times?
Remember folks, and this is one of the few economic/political axioms out there, socialism always fails because it is based on falsehood fundamentally. Particularly false PRICES. And the degree to which socialism fails (eventually) correlates directly to the amount of socialism instituted. The bigger the socialism, the bigger the ultimate failure.
The communists were deeply against the family. They celebrated children who turned their parents in for anti-state dispositions.
Indeed there is an old communist/socialist adage that holds one must indoctrinate a child in socialism before he or she is too big to fit sideways on the bed. If they aren’t brainwashed into their love of the state very early the child’s love of family will take over.
Consider that for a moment.
There are many people in this country who abhor the family unit and are more than happy to see the family’s destruction as an informal institution.
