Venezuela was a prosperous and civilized country with the largest oil fields in the world and Gold and silver deposits in abundance. Then the Venezuelan people made the mistake of electing a socialist government.
Just fourteen years later, all that prosperity has gone to be replaced by rioting in the streets. Supermarkets are empty and people are dying from starvation and lack of medical care. Socialism had brought poverty, death and violence.
Socialism sounds wonderful, but only if you know nothing about human behaviour and economics. If you do know a little about these things, then you will also know that socialism is a recipe for disaster on a scale that can only be matched by a massive natural disaster. In fact, ‘socialism’ could be described as: ‘a massive unnatural disaster’.
Nothing else but socialism can destroy so much wealth and bring an affluent and civilized people to violence and wrack and ruin in such a short period.
Australia and most of the world is eagerly heading in the same direction.
