Socialism: An Indifferent Government Made of Fallible People

Melissa Mackenzie, The American Spectator

The government is made up of people. People are fallible, frail, easily corrupted, vengeful, and generally rotten creatures. Put a bunch of them together, and the evil is multiplied. Socialism relies on the goodness of people and on their benevolent intentions. It assumes that when the environment is more equal, people will behave better. All of these premises are flawed. That’s why, when socialism (the softer word for communism) is implemented, it fails. Always. It’s why corrupt leaders like Putin, Xi, Maduro, and Chavez end up rich even as their countries founder and fail.
