Skip to comments.The New America: Socialism Expands, Freedom Contracts
Posted on 02/18/2009 5:49:22 AM PST by curth
Weve had another miracle on the political-media scene. And Im not talking about the appearance of President Barack The Messiah Obama. Im talking about another miracle of that magnitude: Newsweek magazine, also known as the Obamaweek Magazine, finally told a bit of the truth with its headline, We Are All Socialists Now: The Perils and Promise of the New Era of Big Government (Feb. 16).
Newsweek starts off fast early in the article: Whether we want to admit it or not and many, especially Congressman Pence [Mike Pence, R-Ind.] and Hannity [Fox News host Sean Hannity], do not, the America of 2009 is moving toward a modern European state.
The sub-headline of the story tells it all, In many ways our economy already resembles a European one. As boomers age, we will become even more French.
Thats not all thats remarkable about the article. What is just as remarkable is that Newsweek, in the article, doesnt make any criticism of turning our capitalist economy into a French-style socialist one.
It pays no attention to history that shows socialism has always produced failure, not prosperity. It shows little understanding of the relationship between expanding government and advancing socialism and contracting freedom and economic viability.
Newsweek expresses no cautions or solution that might avoid our descent into socialism, likely to bring chronic unemployment, economic stagnation and distortion, exploding regulation and restrictions on freedom. It shows no understanding how the excesses of the stimulus package, packed with pork and spending not related to economic recovery, are compounding economic problems, already serious enough.
