The Negative Effects of Socialism and the Rebirth of the Progressive in Modern Society
Nicolo Buicoon 8 December 2011
Transcript of The Negative Effects of Socialism and the Rebirth of the Progressive in Modern Society
-- Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged" This cartoon illustrates the Progressives' fanatical obsession with taxes, which only puts a country further into depression. Shows how oftentimes irrelevant subjects or subjects not connected to legislature is used to influence choices in voting and in the minds of politicians. So, what is... Socialism:
A form of government in which there is no private property; money and services will be distributed according to the government's definition of need. Based on the "Socially Correct Morals of an Advanced Society". A Progressive:
A person who believes in worker's rights. Over time, this has evolved into a belief that the Rich opress the poor and that all of their private wealth should be taken from them so as to be distributed to the Poor, despite how hard the Rich had to work to gain that wealth. Afflicted Countries Include Laos Vietnam France Canada Norway Sweden Germany Unethical forms of exploitation by Progressives
These people are very well known for their ability to dodge questions. a common form of evasion is what is known as "Scare Tactics". This involves using an unrelated event that causes fear or rash decisions in people as a reason to push certain movements or laws. Why is this a "Bad" thing? The previously listed countries are all expeeriencing record high debt and are essentially failing in an economical as well as a social sense. This is because in a socialistic environment, the people who work the least amount or who work the jobs that require the least amount of skill are paid the most. Therefore, a brain surgeon makes less than a worker at a fast-food restaurant. This is not exactly good incentive for any person to work hard so as to lead a better life. In fact, the incentive is too work a little as possible so as to receive the most benefits. This means less entrepreneurs and small businesses, who are the work horses of all successful economies. Would you work more for less return? How can we fix this Problem? The effects of this can all be reversed by reverting to the standards that encouraged man to build a better life for himself and his loved ones. You do not do this by taking away his incentive to work. you do this by lessening taxes and encouraging excellency. If you want someone to watch over your home for a month while you are away, who would it be? Certainly not your 16-year-old pimply-faced neighbor. You would first consider an experienced professional with a good cusomer rating. Why, then, should we pay the neighbor for his services over the professional? The answer is that we shouldn't. This, as many of you know, is Ronald Reagan. He is deceased, but i will none the less present his acceptance speech for a Nobel Prize. Ladies and Gentlemen, I stand before you today to accept this most noble, pardon the pun, of prizes. Many of you may disagree with my policies, but as a whole they prevented war with Soviet Russia. All I have ever wanted is for this world which was so graciously given to us by our Creator to thrive and bask in the shining sun of Capitalism. I know the importance of the entrepreneurial spirit in the world economy. Hopefully, you do as well now. Thank you all for following me in my dream. Nobel acceptance speech.
