Why Socialism is Crap
Posted by Moose
Why Socialism is crap. Of course the reasons are innumerable but I’m just going to stick to one.
Socialism is crap because the world needs garbage-men, freight packers, and ditch diggers.
You cannot castigate the wealthy for being rich and greedy without also mocking the poor for being poor and helpless. To say that the poor can’t help themselves is an insult. That they aren’t capable enough to take care of themselves and therefore other people should should offend more than it does. Never mind that the reason most poor people are poor isn’t because of lack of money but rather lack of smart decision making. Sure they don’t have a lot of money, but the biggest obstacle for people trying to move up from the lower class is poor planning and long term decision making.
The very system that is meant to move them up actually holds them down. Why bother trying when it’s all given to you for free anyway? That coupled with the poor planning keeps most poor people in their down-trodden status. It’s one thing to say the rich should help the poor improve themselves but it’s another thing altogether to say that the rich should subsidize the poor, for some greater good such as fairness.
Beyond all that, not everyone is meant to be rich. We aren’t all intended to be identical. We are meant simply to be. To be as good (or bad) as we can be at whatever it is we do. Everyone is different, not special, just different. When we can rid ourselves of this socialist manner of thinking we’ll actually be able to help people, because they will realize that they have to help themselves before anyone else can help them.
