I think that in the interest of fairness- in today’s climate where socialism has become a hot topic- that we use a little honesty and admit that there are some things that socialism is very good at:
Killing people. And in the special category of genocide, they have a near monopoly.
(It is necessary to point out that socialism is to communism what liberalism is to conservatism. Socialism/communism are two branches of totalitarian globalism, liberalism/conservatism are two branches of capitalism.)
Socialism as a modern incarnation came on the scene via Marx and Engels 1848 “Communist Manifesto”. Marxism/Communism/Socialism proposes to replace private ownership of property with public ownership of all property. The public must, inevitably, have an administrative branch to ensure equitable distribution of the publicly owned capital.
That’s the theory. What is the real result? The following is a list of the biggest mass murders of the last century- the perp, ideology and number of deaths:
China- Communist- 80,000,000+
Adolf Hitler- Socialist- 12,000,000
Soviet Union- Communist- 8,000,000
Japan (Tojo)- Socialist- 5,000,000
Ottoman Empire- Imperial Monarchy- 2,600,00
Pol Pot (Cambodia)- Communist- 1,700,000
Gowon (Nigeria)- Socialist- 1,000,000
Socialism has consistently failed when deciding who gets what in their system, but they don’t have any problem deciding who doesn’t get anything.
