"Real Socialism" Has Indeed Been Tried... And It's Been A Disaster

Post by ZenInformer » Sun May 06, 2018 4:35 pm

As hyperbolic as such a statement may seem, this idea nevertheless fundamentally describes the mindset of those who claim "socialism has never really been tried"; if socialism is to be implemented, something must be done to relieve people of their attachment to private property and all the other customs and ideas that get in the way of utopia.

In practice, this has always meant using the power of the state to force a new way of life on people. Moreover, thanks to economic realities, it has also meant that the more socialism is applied, the lower the standard of living sinks. But — the thinking goes — so long as the socialist planners keep forging ahead, and refuse to be sabotaged by capitalist thought, then utopia can be reached. Yes, there will be a lot of suffering in the interim, but the ultimate payoff will be incalculably great.

Socialism will always be a disaster. It's completely against reality and logic.

Yes it will always fail and yet there still proponents who would gladly force people into accepting their radical delusions.

~For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

That's correct. To implement Socialism, you would need a central authority to enforce the system. Since is not voluntary by default, it is based on violence.
