The Sorry History of Socialism
In a socialist economy, the rich are pulled down to the level of the poor so that everyone is the same. Politicians and government officials become the new elite, and the free enterprise engine of wealth creation is shut down. In a socialist society there are only two classes, the rulers and the ruled.
Socialism is the false god for
the poor. It sounds good, especially if presented by a good salesman like Fidel
Castro or Bernie Sanders. But the system is an eventual disaster for everyone,
especially the poor. It's the false promise to the poor that there is something
for them for nothing and that the rich are rich because they have stolen
something from the poor, something that they didn't have in the first place.
