    Angry The American Left Makes Socialism Great Again

    The American Left Makes Socialism Great Again.

    In a May 1948 speech, Winston Churchill had this to say about socialism: “Socialism is the philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy.” Years later, legendary economist Thomas Sowell had another succinct explanation of the failed philosophy: “The inherent virtue of Socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.” These are sage words that are being ignored by today’s generation, who have been seduced by envy, anger, and odious and fatuous rhetoric.

    Socialists often tell two lies: it is not your fault that you are failing at life and you can be given something for nothing. Who wouldn’t want to believe this? If someone were to tell you that you are stuck
    living in your mother’s basement because of Gordon Gekko’s greed, then you’d at least be tempted to convince yourself that this is really the cause for your lack of success or ambition. Or, if someone stated that you are entitled to housing and tuition, then you’d want to believe that as well.

    Sweden

    At least that is the country that is always touted as a socialist success story.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.
