The Philosophy Of Socialism

There are those in the United States that are ignorantly, or purposely trying to undermine the free economy of America. A philosophy that has for more than 250 years, made this country the most well off, for the most people, and the most desired country in the world to live in. And yet the greedy Social Communists, those that believe they are just a lot more equal than the masses, are turning America into just another failed Socialist Tyranny.
If you have been paying attention to the news you will see the ugly face of socialism in Venezuela. It is as if the aforementioned quote of Ronald Reagan is being played out right before our eyes, but should we be surprised? Recall how so many Hollywood Communist elites flocked to Venezuela when the tyrant and socialist dictator Hugo Chavez came to power. Folks like Sean Penn, Oliver Stone, Harry Belafonte, and others celebrated and dreamed of this utopia. However, if these individuals had taken the time to read and study political philosophy they would have realized that socialism is rooted in five basic principles or tenets – 1. Wealth redistribution, 2. Nationalizing of production, 3. Expansion of the welfare state, 4. Social egalitarianism, and 5. Secular humanism. In my estimation, these are principles not to be admired in a sociality, but instead should be feared.
Hugo Chavez promised to take from a certain class, let’s call them producers, and reallocate to the masses. The problem with that is as Margaret Thatcher expressed, those producers did as suspected, they fled. In South Florida is the suburban city in Broward County called Weston. In the city of Weston, you will see the American flag and another flag very prominently flying…it is the Venezuelan flag. There are those who affectionately call Weston Florida, “Westenzuela”. It is there that the great Venezuelan economic producers and those who did not share the vision of its socialist hell, fled to, and it is a beautiful American city.
“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”– Sir Winston Churchill
