Leftists always promise a paradise, while the results of their socialist agenda are always a disaster, why would anyone want to replicate that?
Take a look at any disaster area and note how it is always similar to end stage socialism.
Chaos, failing infrastructure, shortages, martial law and catastrophic effects are endemic to both situations. While the causes are somewhat different, the results are always the same, so why would anyone want this brought upon their society?
Selling Socialistic Slavery with promises while ignoring the costs.
Leftists are usually long on promises and short on funding sources when trying to sell their societal slavery. They will tout all the freebies without mentioning how they plan on paying for them. Worse yet, they pile promise upon promise of government goodies in a perverse competition to see who can spend the most of other people’s money without stating the source of their largess.
Meanwhile they skip over just how ‘From each according to his abilities’ will work without coercion in a free-society. Never mind that it’ll be impossible to pay for all of the goodies. We’re already $21 Trillion in the hole and the nation’s Socialist Left wants to dig even deeper.
It will be the ‘The Glorious world of next Tuesday’ don’t worry about who is going to foot the bill, they will gladly do it… knowing a bullet scarred wall awaits them if they don’t.
Reality is never to kind to progressive promises of paradise.
But something always gets in the way on the road to paradise. Basic psychological principles show that a behaviour will increase with a reward while a behaviour will decrease when punished. Many will be on board for the free health care, free college, free housing, free childcare and of course, free money. The problem is that someone has to pay for it at some point. Take other people’s money away from them and they will stop working as well. Soon enough, it all looks like a disaster area.
Scandinavian Socialism is a myth.
We can dispense with the ‘Nordic model’ red herring the Left is forever trotting out to somehow ‘prove’ the functionality of socialism. Small, culturally homogenous Scandinavian countries that can fund large welfare states with funds from natural resources and without the need for defense spending fail as proof that collectivism can work. Most have higher ratings in liberty than the states, and some have stated flat out that they aren’t socialist.
Sorry Leftists, the ‘Mixed economy’ myth also proves socialism doesn’t work.
Then there is the ‘Mixed economy’ dodge that ironically proves the opposite of what it’s supposed to prove. Socialistic Slavery is very much akin to a poison in a biological system with higher dosages being ever more harmful. Socialism retards economic activity, with higher dosages having increased adverse effects. Rather than proving socialism can work, it proves the opposite.
A living being can survive with a certain amount of poison, just as a healthy economy can survive the societal poison of socialism, but that’s hardly an argument to increase the dosage. Eventually, both would succumb to the poison, so it would only make sense to flush it out of the system instead of making the situation far worse with more of the same.
Leftists promise paradise and it never comes to pass.
To hear it from the Left, their incredible ideology will usher in a Utopia of inestimable proportions. Free healthcare, free tuition, free income, free housing, free childcare, etc. etc. Never mind who is going to pay for all of this free stuff, everyone will dance and sing while unicorns prance around over rainbows in a perfect progressive paradise.
The reality of Socialism is quite different, resembling the short-term situation of a disaster area.
Anyone familiar with disaster situations and areas controlled by the Left cannot help but notice that they are eerily similar. While the causes are slightly different, the results are the same in both scenarios. Compare disaster areas to the promises of paradise made by the Left in trying to sell their socialist snake oil.
Whenever a disaster is to befall an area or has taken place, people often have to queue up to get the most basic of necessities. Supplies of water, milk, toilet paper and petrol often run short causing panic amongst the populace. These are an everyday occurrence in a ‘worker’s paradise’. Since there is no incentive to produce, these basic consumer goods end up in short supply. Quite often a socialist government will parcel these items out in a bid to buy loyalty while punishing the opposition. In the case of the wondrous Leftist paradise of Venezuela, home of the world’s largest oil reserves, people even have to queue up to buy gas. That socialist nation has continual shortages of basic necessities including water. Food is so scarce, people have to regularly rummage through the garbage to find something to eat. Many have lost an incredible amount of weight on the ‘Maduro diet’.
Failing infrastructure/Power outages.
Disasters will often result in power outages and infrastructure failure. In the case of a nation under socialism, the fundamental flaws of the that ideology cause these problems.
People fleeing the area.
Disaster situations will see multitudes of people leaving to get out of the danger zone. An area under the societal slavery of socialism will see people leaving to escape the destruction of Liberty endemic to the Left’s national agenda.
The lack of law and order in a disaster situation will have some take advantage of the situation to steal from others. Collectivism is in effect an official policy of looting, with Liberty control, empowering both the government and the criminal element, with crime running rampant after the innocent have been disarmed.
Often times, order is maintained with the military in a disaster area, as is often the case under a socialistic regime. Accidental deaths will often result from these situations. Oppression as well as deaths deliberately caused by said regimes are a staple of socialism.
The Key difference between a natural Disaster and the disaster of socialism.
The primary difference between a socialist system and a disaster is that the latter is a temporary condition. The people in the midst of a disaster only have endure it for a short time period. Those under the yoke of socialistic slavery have to endure it for years if not decades. Conditions will most often quickly improve in a disaster situation. Not so, for those suffering under socialism, who have to deal with the shortages, queuing up, failing infrastructure, power outages, crime, oppression and deliberate mass murder without relief.
These facts clearly indicate why those bent on attaining power under socialism never talk about it’s true reality. Their promises are always for something that never comes to fruition, for no one would willingly accept the permanent disaster of socialism if they were the least bit truthful of it’s final results.
