One good way to understand why Socialism is evil is fairly easily summed up in one word: Recourse.
Socialism removes recourse, while it steadily degrades everyone’s quality of life,.
In its extreme manifestations, of course, it slaughters people wholesale.
Continue reading Socialism is Evil (Part V)
Socialism is evil — REALLY evil. It ALWAYS kills and impoverishes people. It’s nothing new; in fact it’s the very same hoary, old thing that has been killing and impoverishing people since there have been people. Now, though, it has a fancy new name, and a vast raft of pseudo-intellectual codswallop to try to make the old rotting meat palatable to the people.

First of all, take heart! It’s all over but the shouting!
That doesn’t change the fact that there’ll be a whole lot of shouting!
Next, if you want to stop future outbreaks of things like this coronavirus catastrophe, then simply overthrow the fascist government in China and install a free-market democracy that will allow the Chinese people to prosper so that they’re not forced to eat all manner of wild creatures bought in disgusting, filthy, open air slaughterhouses called, “wet markets.”
Liberate China! (it’ll save millions, maybe billions, of lives)

Sometimes we get welcome outside confirmation that we’re publishing the right things, and that we’re not being too hard on the scoundrels, idiots, and power-mad corruptocrats of the American Left and the Democrat Party leadership. 🙂

A leftist does the math,” and comes to the conclusion that Michael Bloomberg could “easily afford to give everyone $1 million dollars and literally never notice.” She tweets that out.
An MSNBC “news” show with Brian Williams — prominent “news” man who was fired for, well, lying — and his colleague Mara Gay, discussed the tweet — on national television! — and treated the million dollar number as if it were a real fact. The real number, however, if distributed among all 327 million Americans would be… $1.53.
The million dollar number is off by a factor of… more than 650,000.

Socialism is the neutron bomb of political ideologies: it slaughters people, while leaving buildings and structures intact.

The agencies serve the people and were created by the people’s elected representatives. They are the people’s instruments, not their masters. Their preferences and conveniences are not to be understood as the controlling concerns.

It’s worth noting that in saving others’ lives, and in sometimes losing their own, these people just might have saved your life too — by being a big reason for why a potential gunman decides not to go on a rampage in the first place.

Will Smollett go to jail for his disgusting racist crime? Or will Chicago law enforcement again bend over backward to try not to look racist or homophobic? The Left have already done what they can to say, “Well, it wasn’t right, what he did, but you can certainly understand it!” Nope. I can’t. If you can understand perpetrating a fraud that you know will cause harm to millions of innocent people, in order to get more money, then you have a serious problem. Smollett’s crime proved pretty conclusively that the basic premise on which he committed it is false. In a truly oppressive country, you don’t need to fabricate oppression. It’s a feature of the system.

There’s a marked increase in hostility on the Right, directed to the Right. However, if the Left were ever to engage in any kind of in-depth introspection, leftism would fall apart like the intellectual house-of-cards it is. It would become nothing more than a vast collection of tiny, spluttering splinter groups feuding and scrapping over tiny niche issues, well below the radar of a media corps too power-hungry to focus on such penny-ante flapdoodle.

Now, mind you, I don’t often disagree with the Great Kevin Williamson, because that moniker — the Great — is well deserved. Williamson is one of the finest, most intelligent, deepest observers of the local and world scenes.

Capitalism is mostly about allowing systems and structures to develop and grow organically. In other words: free people using free choices to show other free people how much they value, or don’t, their products and services.
In Venezuela, one of the natural resource-richest countries… in the world, the people have no food or toilet paper. So, to make things better for them, their government guns them down in the streets. Why? Well, the people are quite naturally wondering why, with all the natural resources their country has… they have no toilet paper or food. When they express those concerns in public the government solves their petty complaints by adding a few grams of lead to their diet. Continue reading The Catastrophic Failure that is Socialism
Our problem on the Right is that we want desperately to think leftists are simply good, but misguided, people. Nope. They’re actually bad people. They mean to do you and me harm, both in order to take power AND to reshape America into their vision of what’s good and right: a country in which they hold the reins of power. The struggle, as far as the Left is concerned, is to the death. We need to be aware of that, and we need to recognize the implications of that. On the Left, at least at the leadership levels, they don’t care if we, and others, die. In fact, that wouldn’t bother them in the least. Leftist leaders are simply bad people.

“Rathi actually had the nerve to tout his support for free speech in the exact same piece where he seems to suggest that it’s a good thing to limit speech when it comes to people like Yiannopoulos and Coulter — and he somehow thought that this kind of logically inconsistent drivel was actually cohesive enough to publish. ”
