Most people don’t understand why socialism is bad. You may think that’s crazy, because perhaps you know the difference, but the reality is that socialism sounds pretty good when you’re in college, and you get good grades for merely mimicking and repeating what the professors telling you. I find it rather unfortunate that our colleges and universities are subsidized by tax dollars, and yet they are being used for indoctrination and brainwashing into the belief that socialism is better than capitalism. It’s not. And let me explain why.
With capitalism if you want more, you have to work for it, and when you work for it you provide labor, or goods and services to the marketplace so someone else can get what they want. With socialism, you demand that you get something, something you didn’t work for, and you demand that someone else pays for it. Really, that is stealing, but it doesn’t seem like it’s stealing because the government is taxing another group of people and taking that money, spending a little bit (theory, in reality they spend a lot) in administration, and giving you the difference.
Because you are one level removed from the situation, it doesn’t feel like stealing, but it actually is. Let me put it this way if we raise the taxes on the people next door you by $699 per year, and the government gave you a $699 iPad which the people next door didn’t get, then in a way they’d be paying for your iPad because the government stole the money from them to give you something. Do you see that?
Socialism is also unethical because it goes against what we consider to be human rights, and also what we consider to be our rights as Americans, namely; freedom, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. If the government controls every aspect of your life as if you were a teenager, just as your parents perhaps tried to do, then you can understand why people call the rise of socialism; a nanny state. Governments like socialism because it’s easier to control the people.
But there are two other items I’d like you to consider when it comes to socialism, as it;
Destroys the Individual for the Whole
Curbs Innovation Except Where the Organism Takes It
Why don’t you think about those two items, and consider what I’ve said previously in this article, and I think it will be readily apparent how true it really is that socialism is unethical. If you don’t believe it, look around at what’s happening, and consider where we are going with all this. Not only is it un-American, it’s not right for our future, and the United States of America need not become another Greek tragedy. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
