I posted another article today by Dan Mitchell regarding the number of successful socialist regimes thoroughout history. Which is zero.
He quotes Marian Tupy in Human Progress who notes that these kids in college have no institutional memory of how dramatically disastrous socialism has been throughout history and states why saying:
America’s college-educated youth…are too young to remember the Cold War and few study history. It is, therefore, timely to remind the millennials of what socialism wrought – especially in some of the world’s poorest countries. Those of us who remember the early 1980s will always remember the images of starving Ethiopian children. …these were the innocent victims of the Derg – a group of Marxist militants who took over the Ethiopian government…She goes on to say:
Between 1983 and 1985, some 400,000 people starved to death. …in 1999, Robert Mugabe, the 92-year-old Marxist dictator who came to power in 1980, embarked on a catastrophic “land reform” program. The program saw the nationalization of privately-held farmland and the expulsion of non-African farmers and businessmen. The result was a collapse of agricultural output, the second highest hyperinflation in recorded history that peaked at 89.7 sextillion or 89,700,000,000,000,000,000,000 percent per year and an unemployment rate of 94 percent. Thousands of Zimbabweans died of hunger and disease despite massive international help.The fact so many young people are now embracing socialism is another excellent reason why the voting age should be raised to 30, not reduced to 16.
For those of us who read books it's been obvious higher education isn't higher at all, but leftist propaganda intending to indoctrinate America's youth to destroy America. That's now become as clear as a bell to more and more of the general public.
There's only one thing leftists are good at. Overthrowing established governments. They're virtually incompetent to do anything else. Since all their good at is stealing power, they steal everything else also, lining their own pockets while destroying what's left of the nations they control. In their wake they leave misery, suffering, starvation, disease and early death.
We really need to get and promote this. Dystopia follows the left like Sancho Panza followed Don Quixote, a madman.
That's history and that history is incontestable.
