“I do think, at a certain point, you’ve made enough money.”
- President Barack Hussein Obama
Here I go again, preaching to the fucking choir because no one with half a brain cell needs to be informed and educated on the harsh reality of socialism. Truth be told, no one will want to be converted, that needs to be, until they’ve reached the bottom of the socialist barrel and even then the vast majority of socialist dipshits will still be reaching up waiting for big brother to reach down and give them a lift. Hell, if you’ve read my article ‘Capitalism: That Damned Dirty Word’ you should already have had enough of a primer on “isms” to be motivated enough to look deeper into why government control of anything is catastrophic. Shit, I didn’t even directly call out socialism in that article. Nor did I smack it around like the bitch it is. If you did read it though, which you should have, the common sense approach to capitalism should’ve opened that door in your mind for you. I’d hate to be a complete prick here but if you buy into the socialist or, even worse, the communist message, then you probably aren’t much of a self-starter, a go-getter or able to see the divide between your progressive liberal education and the real world. Well fuckers, if you’re not half asleep from weak shitty homegrown weed and Pabst, then it is time to face the music and pay attention.
“A society that puts equality ahead of freedom, will end up with neither equality nor freedom.” – Milton Friedman
First of all, socialism is for fucking losers. It is a system designed to control the numb dumb masses and make them reliant on the state. Socialism IS statism. It is also communism, collectivism, altruism, totalitarianism and the big “F” fascism. Many people argue that there is a difference between socialism and communism. The only difference is that communism begins with a gun to your head; socialism ends with a gun to your head. It amazes me how many of these socialist fucktards bitch about big brother being on their ass while failing to see that the system they so passionately believe in is just fuel to big brother’s tyrannical fire. The state is lighting your funeral pyre as you are handing them the wood!
You see, Socialism is a disease: plain and fucking simple. It is a disease that has poisoned the minds of countless people all over the world who, for whatever bullshit reason, believe that working for the common good is somehow more virtuous than working for your own personal prosperity. Never has a greater and grander lie ever been accepted as an absolute truth by billions of people! The evidence of socialism’s complete lack of success is everywhere, yet those sucking the state-sanctioned cock continue to do so with the frenzy and intensity of a weathered S&M porn star.
The socialist system has never succeeded and a I challenge anyone out there to give me an example of where it has. Hell, I’ll even go the John Stossel route and ask anyone to point out a single area in which the government has done anything well. The government’s job should be to stay the fuck out of the people’s way and to only enforce simple laws that are there to protect one’s individual rights and property rights from being violated or infringed upon by someone else; that’s it! However, that just isn’t enough for some people.
Some people want nationalized healthcare, a welfare system, entitlements and pretty much anything else that the government can do to make their life easier and less independent. People seemingly do not want to make their own decisions, they need a leader, a parental figure, a boss. That is exactly what the socialist system will provide. It is not about the greater good lifting itself up so everyone wins, contrary to what your cockturd professor told you. It is about redistributing the wealth of those who work hard to make things more “equal” for those who don’t work at all. It is theft, pure and fucking simple.
Unfortunately, there are way too many people sporting foggy glasses that believe in pipe dreams. The saddest thing is that, as morally right as they believe that they are, common sense, reason, facts and data are typically rejected and written off as greedy capitalist right-wing propaganda. They refuse to see things any other way because they’ve been bred into a life of guilt, whether it is white guilt, class guilt or any other kind of bullshit guilt. While they work to absolve their souls of imaginary sins that will never disappear, the are actually committing incredible sins against their fellow man and their children. Socialism, if it really worked, would be amazing. The fact is, it doesn’t. It is the diet version of every evil “ism” out there and it hinders “progress”, something that the progressives claim they are for in their own name! So let’s go over a few factors that prove that socialism is a system of pure fucking insanity.
“Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.” - Alexis de Tocqueville
Socialism in its simplest form is theft: legalized and mandated by the government. Under socialism wealth is redistributed, something that Obama, his peeps, MSNBC and the progressive liberals are trying to force on the American people. Basically what this means is that the rich are taxed higher in order to fund the less wealthy and to help them reach equal standing. Can’t you see how preposterous this shitty ass ideology is? Essentially, it is forced charity, among many other things and it sure as shit won’t create a utopia of equality. If anything it will create a helpless and dependent dystopian society; more on that later.
Now, I don’t know where you come from but I come from a place where force is met with resistance. By forcing the rich to pay for the poor, no matter how you feel about that morally, the government is putting a gun to the rich taxpayer’s head and making him give up the money he earned in order to take care of a poorer man who is either down on his luck, not as successful or milking the system for every fucking dime he possibly can. If the rich man doesn’t want to partake in this exchange voluntarily, he will be forced to. That IS theft. PERIOD.
We are not nor have we ever been a socialist society. That doesn’t mean that we are safe from it however, as everyday we inch closer and closer to a socialist system. The current administration and their minions are pushing hard for a system that will rape our income and provide for those who aren’t in the hunt. Equality can’t be forced; in fact, equality is impossible to achieve. The only real way to achieve it is through capitalism. For those shaking their fucking heads, go read my article about capitalism. Point is, the federal government loves to steal. The federal government is addicted to it. Our money is their drug and their unquenchable thirst for endless fixes will never stop until “We the People” have a serious fucking intervention with the federal junkie!
The thing that you have to remember is that the federal government has no money: NONE! Every penny it has, was taken from one of us. All they are is a redistribution center for money. So to those of you thinking, “Oh, I need money let me sign up for this government program” must realize that that money you need is coming from your neighbor, not some magical pot of endless dough sitting on Capitol Hill. Then again, there is the Federal Reserve who just hits “print”, makes more money and destroys our economy. However, that is an argument for another day.
If you do not want big brother’s hand dipping into your pocket, then do something about it. It’s your money. Shouldn’t we have the freedom to choose if we want to be charitable? And with that, shouldn’t we be free to give our money to whomever or whatever we want? It is OUR money, I don’t get why that is so hard for people to process. We shouldn’t be forced to give to a government that can divvy up the cash anyway they see fit. Hell, studies show that back in the day, before the income tax and strong government intervention into our personal lives and businesses, that Americans were incredibly charitable people. Philanthropy was booming in the latter half of the 19th century. Today, taxes stifle the bottom line and philanthropy isn’t what it once was over a hundred years ago.
“The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.” – Winston Churchill
Socialism is not just theft, it is also a system that destroys a person’s independence and makes them reliant on the state. Through welfare and other socialistic programs, people lose their self-respect, their self-reliance and their dignity. While socialistic ideals are portrayed as honorable acts by the media and universities, the truth is that, in practice, these ideals are anything but honorable. That is, unless creating a society of full-grown infants that need to be coddled by the sweet love of big brother is honorable. Well, it fucking isn’t homies; it’s fucking disgusting and pathetic is what it is.
You see, when one gets into the habit of having everything taken care of for them, what motivation does that person have to do anything themselves? They have absolutely none. I know this first hand through my own experiences. I also know this be observing the system and how it works. When scratching beyond the surface and coming face to face with the abhorrent machinations of the system, it’s evil and vile intentions are profoundly and thoroughly exposed. In my own life, I was faced with a huge decision that changed everything I thought I knew and took me from a path of entitlement to a path of self-sufficiency, self-confidence and self-reliance.
When I was living at my mother’s house leeching off of her and not pulling my weight in my early twenties, she kicked me out. Well, she had help from my uncle and other family members. Anyway, I was fucking pissed, depressed, sad, alone, betrayed by the ones I love, jobless and homeless. I didn’t have the tools to survive. However, the government certainly wanted to offer a helping hand. I passed because deep down inside, I already felt like a total fucking loser by forcing my mum to even have to take that stance against her son. I knew that I had to break the cycle and I did. Granted, I had help from friends along the way and I appreciate absolutely everything everyone of my peeps did for me, without them, I may not have made it where I am today. If anything, the road would’ve been a hell of a lot harder. However, did I take a taxpayers dime to help me go from homelessness to having a sweet job, a sweet car and a great life? The answer is a capital “FUCK NO!” What was, at the time, the worst and hardest moment of my life became the greatest thing that ever happened to me. Shit, I was a pro-socialist liberal back then too. Going through what I did, started to transform my outlook on everything.
I’ve had friends in similar situations and almost always they have taken the federally mandated handout. Each one of them, years later, is just as bad off if not worse than they were back then. My own life and the lives of many people I know are proof enough, to me, that socialism is a horrendous system that creates children out of men and crushes our humanity. It is a system for losers that breeds bigger broken down losers. It creates reliance on the government and through that subservience. If you want to be a slave to the state, embrace socialism!
“One of the consequences of such notions as “entitlements” is that people who have contributed nothing to society feel that society owes them something, apparently just for being nice enough to grace us with their presence.”
- Thomas Sowell
One of the worst aspects of socialism is that it divides the people in several ways. First of all, it creates an entitled poverty class that grows to hate the “greedy” rich class who they perceive as not helping them out enough. This leaves the middle class wedged between the two waring classes where they are left to take it in the ass from both ends. Secondly, the poverty class is made up of a large number of minorities, whereas the wealthy class is comprised of a large number of white people. Because of this, class warfare evolves into a strong racial divide. The mainstream media loves this fucking scenario. Especially shitcock fucktards like Chris Matthews and his MSNBC cronies. Also, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, not to mention the NAACP, use the class warfare/racial divide to pimp their agenda. Without the divide, they have no purpose. God forbid they stop being pot-stirring parasites.
The socialists and liberals in general carry this heavy weight around because their understanding of common sense economics is clouded by their morally superior egos. The huge misconception is that capitalism keeps the rich richer and the poor poorer. I have already covered several different ways that it doesn’t do this in my ‘Capitalism’ article and I don’t want to rehash all those points again. The truth is, socialism hinders an individual’s progress, as I discussed in the previous section in this article. Because of that, the divide grows and the poor get poorer. However, under socialism the rich get poorer too. To the unenlightened, the rich dude falling down the ladder of monetary gain is probably a blessing and and example of justice being served. This thought is fucking retarded and so feeble minded that someone who harbors it is a selfish and childish maroon convinced that they are embracing truth and selflessness. In reality, this person is embracing their own economic slavery, their own selfishness and their own self-perpetuating weaknesses. Ignorance is blind. Blind ignorance is suicide.
Now back to my point, when the rich dude is making less money, because his progress is stifled by the socialist machine, there will be less money to go to the thieving government. After they separate it all out and waste most of it, there will be even much less for the poor dude. So yes, the poor get poorer and the rich get poorer. Socialism is a system for losers, there is no doubt about that in a sane person’s vernacular. It brings down all social classes until there is nothing left but mass poverty and chains hooking you to the socialist leviathan.
Also, before I move on from this portion of the article, I have to point out that the bullshit idea that rich Americans aren’t charitable and giving enough is outlandish and laughable. When one looks at the facts, Americans give more to charity than the citizens of any other nation. It is the rich assholes that send a fuckload of support to Haiti and Chile and other places around the world. That charity is also abundant in the United States. It isn’t as abundant as it would be in a freer less taxed society but it still takes the proverbial cake compared to the rest of the world. Problem is, everyone is so focused on pointing out the douchebags and the crony capitalists that when a real charitable rich dude makes a selfless power move, it is usually ignored or brushed aside. “Oh, he just wants a tax write-off”, they say.
“Socialism is a fraud, a comedy, a phantom, a blackmail.” – Benito Mussolini
The worst thing about socialism, other than robbing the shit out of you, is that it creates one hell of a fucking police state. You don’t believe me? Well dumbo, what the shit happens if you refuse to comply with the government stealing your cheese? Quite simply, you will be forced to submit to their will. You will be arrested, you will be sued and ultimately, if you continue to refuse to conform to the state’s law, you will be thrown into prison. Chances are, depending upon how deep we are in this corrupt system, you could be taken out back and end up getting a bullet between the eyes.
Maybe this sounds scary and you think it is sensationalizing the issue but what happens if you don’t pay your taxes in our quasi-capitalist society now? Imagine what would happen if you didn’t pay your taxes or pull your weight in a socialist society. Are you so naive that you believe that the people in the commune aren’t going to snitch on you if they are pulling their weight and you aren’t? Do you think the state that feeds off of your forced contributions is going to play nice when you can’t live up to your role? When striving for equality, what happens when someone falls behind the status quo and is no longer “equal”? The fallacy that equality is even possible will be the deathtrap to all those that are tied to this system.
When the government provides, the government controls. This is totally apparent now, in this day and age. With welfare and unemployment benefits, there are seemingly endless rules and regulations that the recipient has to follow. If you fail to meet these requirements, whether they are just rules or not, you will be stripped of government assistance. In most cases, people in this sort of position will do what must be done to survive. Usually this leads to criminal behavior. In a system that is completely run by the state, who will you be robbing? Certainly not the individual. The individual only has what has been provided to him by the crooked thieving state. No, you’d have to find a way to steal it from big brother himself. Boy oh boy, the socialist Stasi won’t be too happy with you, now will they?
There is no way around it. Socialism will create a police state. Once the iron talons of socialism are locked in, it would only be a matter of time before the government evolved into full fledged communism and thus, fascism would be our harsh reality. You can’t run a socialist society on the honor system. There must be regulation, there must be control, there must be rules and everyone must pull their fucking weight or the machine will stagnate and eventually decay. If the machine decays, there would be lawlessness and anarchy. For the system to thrive, it must move forward. So if you fall behind, you are going to get left behind, probably as a corpse because a dead beat is pointless to feed. Once socialism is implemented, it wouldn’t take much to bring about another Holodomor.
“The essential characteristic of socialism is the denial of individual property rights; under socialism, the right to property (which is the right of use and disposal) is vested in ‘society as a whole,’ i.e., in the collective, with production and distribution controlled by the state, i.e., by the government. Socialism may be established by force, as in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics – or by vote, as in Nazi (National Socialist) Germany. The degree of socialization may be total, as in Russia – or partial, as in England. Theoretically, the differences are superficial; practically, they are only a matter of time. The basic principle, in all cases, is the same.” – Ayn Rand
Throughout history, socialism has absolutely never worked! The people have always fought against it and even if it was in place for decades, eventually, everywhere it has been, it has collapsed. It is destroying Europe and creating social and economic chaos across that continent. It failed in Russia, as it’s more concentrated form: communism. China, who is still technically communist, is openly embracing the ideals of capitalism, which is why it is succeeding and taking over the world in many ways. North Koreans are now begging the outside world for food, as they starve under their corrupt system. In Canada, victims of the socialist healthcare system flock to the United States for treatment and general medical care. Cubans leave their homeland in droves and set up shop in the United States to avoid the communist dictatorship that was put in place by Fidel Castro and the star of every liberal cockpuppet’s wet dream, Che Guevara. Even Hitler’s monstrous and seemingly invincible Nazi Empire crumbled. Even if they survived the World War II, they would’ve eventually toppled, as all socialist nations do.
Realistically, socialism could never work because eventually everyone plagued by it will be broken down and defeated. Their spirit crushed: the people of a socialist nation will have nothing to strive for. Their hard work would be nonexistent after it has set in that there is no reward for giving it their all. There is no incentive to even try. When this mentality spreads across their entire society, no one will be doing their part. Everyone will see their neighbor slow down and they will all follow suit. As time moves forward, workers will get slower and slower and slower until everything comes to a full stop. When this happens, every person in this system has reached rock bottom. Hell, they would be below rock bottom.
When the workers don’t produce, the state can’t consume. If the state can’t consume, the state can’t sustain. When the state can’t sustain, the state collapses in on itself. So when it collapses in on itself, where does that leave the survivors of the socialist nightmare? Would they be able to pick themselves up and return to real productivity? Could they possibly revert back to being self-sufficient free men? Or would they be vacant brainwashed shells unable to acquire their own food because the state isn’t there to do it for them? This is why I made the earlier statement that socialism is a disease. Shit, it’s fucking cancer.
“How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads
Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.” – Ronald Reagan
With all these examples given, one cannot deny that the socialist message is a message of insanity. Once understood, the message cannot be believed. It only leads down a path of evil and destruction. Socialism is chaos. It is also a small step away from communism and all other evil “isms”. It is not a solution to our problems. It is not a quick fix against capitalism. In fact, capitalism doesn’t need a fix, it just needs to exist. As I’ve stated many times, we don’t have capitalism, we have crony capitalism, a system strangled by regulations and rules. Regulation and capitalism are not compatible! Frankly, until we actually have true capitalism, only then can you point the finger of blame at it. To do so now is proof that you know nothing about what you talk about. To suggest socialism as a solution, paints you as even a bigger fucking fool. To suggest communism as a solution, paints you as a lazy entitled sorry ass dumbfuck. If you truly want communism, then fucking move to North Korea. If you truly want socialism, then fucking move to Europe. If this country sucks, there are 195 more to choose from. Get the fuck out and wave your red flag elsewhere.
If you do love this country and want to stop slipping into this socialist pit, then get off your ass and fucking do something about it! Unfortunately, it is the sick psycho idiots that seem to have the loudest voices. It’s the sane people who are mellow as shit and who don’t defend their position or their beliefs with the thundering passion and burning energy of the extreme left. Why? Why the fuck don’t you people take care of business! Everyday this country slips further and further away from liberty and freedom. As that happens, we are getting closer to the socialist utopia that these cuntfucks are championing in. It’s your country, so stop letting these assholes shit on it!
