Socialism may well spring back to life with a force shocking to those who have declared socialism to be no longer viable. Lee Harris on the challenge that capitalism faces today. Whether it will rise to the challenge is perhaps the most urgent question of our time.
Because we feel sorry for losers?
Socialism isn't dead because there will always be a bunch of idiots who trumpet its ideals.
These are the same idiots that have never created anything, have nothing to lose, and are unable to process or accept rational thought, logical conclusions, or the lessons of history.
Socialism is like the Black Death, except it's killed vastly more people.
Clinton just proved Socialism is alive , with his Coalition
to TAKE SODA out of the schools.
You don't seem to have an answer yet...and the answer is simple.
Socialism isn't dead because tyrants continue to seek the meant to control their fellow man.
Socialism never died because we have the liberal left.
Socialism isn't dead because, well, it appears that really bad ideas die very, very slowly.
Socialism is a vampire. It sucks your blood, turns you into a zombie and cannot be killed easily.........
I dreamed I saw Joe Hill last night,
Alive as you and me.
Says I "But Joe, you're ten years dead"
"I never died" said he
It's a great question that deserves a lot of attention. I hope we'll continue to talk about this topic, and hopefully come up with more ideas for slaying this ugly, multi-headed beast.
I'm glad the author wrote about this, and I'm glad you've posted it here.
Socialism isn't dead because, truth be told, most people like it.
Take a look around. You don't see many people crying about the redistributionist aspect of the home mortgage deduction, or the child credit, do you?
Many who consider themselves "conservative" are really more concerned about who "deserves" the benefits rather than whether they should exist at all.
This is why the republican party has gone the way it has too. No matter what kind of rhetoric they spout, they know that in order to get re-elected, they need to bring home the bacon.
If it didn't really work that way, believe me they wouldn't be doing it.
BECAUSE... socialism is caused by democracies.. Democracies are the source of socialism.. Socialism is just a symptom.. of the social disease of a Democracy.. that is; democracy as a form of givernment..
Big difference between democracy and "A" democracy..
Democracy is the road to socialism. Karl Marx
Democracy is indispensable to socialism. The goal of socialism is communism. V.I. Lenin
The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to socialism.- Karl Marx
Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide. John Adams (1814)
NOTE; Thats WHY in the U.S. Constitution there are three words omitted ON PURPOSE...
1) democracy.. 2) democractic.. 3) and democrat.. Not to be found.. The founders KNEW a democracy was Slavery by Givernment.
Because you can't fix 'Stupid'.
"Democracy will never work once the people learn they can vote largess for themselves."
