Have you ever noticed that those who champion socialism don't mention the bad parts, ever? They talk about our current society's inequalities and propose socialism as the only viable solution.
What they don't talk about is the terrors of socialism -there is a reason that the Cubans are protesting their socialistic government.
They don't mention that socialism means turning your lives over to the government and it's officials: they will choose your job, your education, your food... everything.
They don't mention how easily socialism turns into communism, with constant surveilannce by government, prisons and camps to hold those who refuse to bend the knee to the totalitarian regime, the citizens reporting on citizens.
Socialism isn't just the loss of private property (and, theoretically -although not in actuality- the abolution of inequality), it's the loss of choice. It's the loss of agency. It's the loss of family. It's the loss of security. It's the loss of freedom.
Socialism has become a popular catch-phrase, the one-size-fits-all solution. In reality, it will be the end of everything we love.
Socialism promises equality and prosperity. However, it won't be done "right this time," it can't be done "right this time."
Because socialism, as has been proved many times in history (to name a few: the USSR; communist China; Venezuala; and Cuba), isn't about equality. It's about power for the few, the exact opposite that those who champion socialism either don't believe or don't disclose.
Don't fall for it:
Socialism isn't pretty.
Freedom is worth standing up for.
