In our “Socialism is Evil” essay prior to this one (here), we pointed out why Socialism is evil.
We went into some detail, and then in Part II (here) we added detail, put everything into a different format, and provided a somewhat lengthy summary at the bottom.
And now, here’s a very brief summary, that kind of ties it all up in a nice concise package:
• Under Capitalism, the government acts only with the consent of the governed.
• Under Socialism, the governed act only with the consent of the government.
Here’re two questions related to the above summary:
#1: In what way, therefore, is Socialism any different from all the previous governmental systems that preceded it?
#2: In what way, therefore, can anyone suggest that Socialism represents any kind of improvement, or progress relative to all the previous governmental systems that preceded it?
