5 Ways That Socialism Kills Societies

– Americans Should Fight Tooth And Nail To Make Sure This Barbarism Never Fully Arrives On Our Shores
In this new story over at the Detroit Free Press which the Drudge Report had linked to Sunday morning, they report that fresh off of making a campaign video that helped get Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez elected, a young Detroit couple has launched a pro-socialism media company out of their house which, for a $10 a month subscription, will offer viewers ‘pro-worker‘ and ‘anti-capitalist‘ programming, including original TV shows, comedy and on the ground reporting.
Just the latest evidence of America’s younger generations turning towards socialism with many ‘millennials‘ and members of ‘Generation Z’ feeling dissatisfied with where they see society headed, we also see ‘seeds of awakening‘ within their story with both members of the couple brought up in Democrat-voting households who now realize they’ve long been lied to.
“I grew up with this idea that Democrats were morally right. And after 2016, I realized that they’re all full of (expletive) — it’s not true. After eight years of Obama, nothing happened, except things got worse,” Naomi Burton said.
Yet while they see a potential ‘answer‘ in socialism, and we certainly understand their frustration when they say “Our future is almost guaranteed to be worse than the future of our parents (at our age), which is essentially the case now“, history has proven that socialism IS NOT the answer to their’s and the world’s misery and in fact, such a system will only bring more.
And while we completely understand and feel empathy when we hear “When I talk to young people, especially those who have come from poverty, there is no hope for a better future” and “They know that the whole ‘I’m going to maybe be rich someday’ is a trap“, the REAL trap is allowing America to fall into socialism and everything that historically comes with it.
And in this March 29th story over at Campus Reform, we see perfectly illustrated a huge reason why socialism is sure to fail in America should it ever be implemented here; while more young people than ever before say they prefer socialism over capitalism, the Campus Reform story shows that those same young people who want socialism don’t want to have to pay for it.
Using the example of the students giving away their own hard earned grade point averages to those who weren’t fairing so well, the flabbergasted looks on these young people’s faces when asked if they’d share their GPA’s with others as seen in the 1st video at the bottom of this story helps prove a major point about socialism. From the Campus Reform story.:
With far left candidates and policies on the rise in America, it’s no surprise that for the first time ever, more young people say they’d prefer to live in a socialist country over a capitalist one.
Whether it’s free healthcare, free college tuition, or universal basic income, students around America increasingly support higher taxes on the wealthy in order to pay for these progressive policies. But would they support similar policies if they had skin in the game?
To find out, Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips went to Florida International University in Miami to test the waters on a “Socialist GPA” policy in which students with higher GPAs would be forced to “spread the wealth” and give some of their GPA points to students with lower GPAs.
Despite the overwhelming number of students who initially said they’d support socialist policies, few agreed to go along with such a plan.
“I’m all for helping, but I wouldn’t give some of my points… I’ve lost a lot of sleep so I don’t know if that would be fair,” one student said, while another answered no because “I like, study all day for my grades.”
Yet another student, after expressing her support for socialism in America conceded, “I guess it would be kind of hypocritical for me to say no.”
Another student, trying to justify his refusal to abide by such a policy, said, “you study for your grades, and they reflect how much time you’re studying.”
With America slowly creeping towards totalitarianism over the last several years, and with censorship a huge part of that ‘creep‘, the image above speaks louder than words, with millions of people victims of socialism through the years.
Any system that forces people to participate in it is clearly a totalitarian system and while the younger generations of the left dive into socialism blindly, a quick look at what happened to Venezuela over the past several years should offer proof it’s not the answer.
And as we’ve seen now throughout the European Union, socialism in EU countries has brought very real tyranny with people there now unable to even criticize the totalitarian political philosophy of Islam without being arrested or punished.
As the Foundation for Economic Education had reported back in 2016, socialism in Venezuela had led to the deaths of more babies there than in war-torn Syria and as their story reported, “sadly, and unsurprising, the results of socialist economics are predictable“.
And as we see from this 2014 story over at Townhall, socialism absolutely demolishes societies and most of the younger generation has no idea what they’re sleepwalking into because they’ve been so well ‘indoctrinated‘ by the education system in America.:
There are a lot of arguments about whether communism, socialism, and liberalism are the same thing. What shouldn’t be arguable is that they’re all closely related branches of the same tree. If you don’t want to live in a house made out of Aleppo Pine, you probably won’t like a Coulter Pine or Eastern White Pine house either. Since socialism has failed so often, socialists of every stripe bend over backwards to disassociate themselves from the many other disasters created by their ideology. Still, a pine by any other name is still a pine.
