"Legion" has some thoughts on the Marxist utopia. Seems to me one of the problems young millennials have is they don't know what socialism is. They have been taught in school, Hollywood and the media, that it's synonymous with Utopia while democracy is Facism. Seasoned enlightened citizens over 40 know the opposite is true. The term "socialism" has been applied to communism, nazism and Facism to make them appear harmless, fair and compassionate. They're anything but that.
What our educational system purposely omitted was teaching the truth. This article will attempt to shed a little light on truth for the good of the Duh Generation.
America was the first country in the history of man to put control of a nations government in the hands of it's citizens. The most perfect road map ever created, the Constitution, was the only declaration ever that guaranteed freedom, liberty and the pursuit of happiness to all. The first that promised justice for all and abolished slavery.
Socialism, under a verity of names has been tried for thousands of years without one success to boast about. The most common form of socialism has been monarchies. Kings, queens, sultans etc all promising a utopian monarchy where everyone would be treated equally and fairly. In reality all the wealth went to the rulers and the people lived in equal poverty. Kinda explains why most of them were overthrown.
While America grew from nothing 200 years ago to the richest, most powerful, most compassionate country ever created, the rest of the world continued to slide into chaos, starvation, enslavement, wars and hatred. Yes, Rome and other empires had long reigns, but only those rulers at the top lived in luxury while the people suffered.
It's perhaps misleading to say America was the richest (at least before Socialist Obama was in office), it's more accurate to say American citizens became the richest people in the world. Everyone has had an equal opportunity to become all they can be with the talents God gave them.
My apology to lefty Marxists for mentioning God. They always try to destroy a belief in God because to them the ruling government IS god.
