The Catastrophic Failure that is Socialism

The Catastrophic Failure that is Socialism


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

Why The Right Always Wins Arguments With The Left


Leftist ideas are old, fat, flaccid, weak, feeble. It’s because those ideas go unchallenged in all the places where they should be most vigorously challenged: academia, the press, Hollywood, pop culture.

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.

Yet Another Masterful Column from Jonah Goldberg — and Some Discussion

Yet Another Masterful Column from Jonah Goldberg — and Some Discussion


I’m not sure that the Trump Presidency is worse than what, with another Republican, likely would have been just an interregnum between the Obama Presidency and the next horror-show Democrat President. Furthermore, don’t forget: lovable, corrupt, witless old Bernie Sanders made it okay to call oneself a Socialist again. That means that the Democrat Party field for President in upcoming primaries will no longer, for the foreseeable future, be lacking an avowedly Socialist candidate for the Presidency. Great. –>    Continue reading Yet Another Masterful Column from Jonah Goldberg — and Some Discussion
