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 and communism fall of their own weight because, as Margaret Thatcher said, you run out of other people’s money. Because socialized medicine never falls of its own weight because you put people on lists, and they die waiting to get the treatment and care. So you don’t go broke.
The function of socialism is to raise suffering to a higher level.
In practice, socialism didn’t work. But socialism could never have worked because it is based on false premises about human psychology and society, and gross ignorance of human economy. David Horowitz
“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy. Its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”
Both Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton support to one extent or the other more socialism in the United States. They are making ‘wonderful’ promises and often point out the success socialism has had in Denmark. Obviously, they are keeping the fact that Denmark is rethinking some aspects of this way of life out of their radar, the following information from a resident of Denmark should make any voter stop to think abut the differences between political promises on the campaign trail and the truth in numbers.
“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”
