Socialism ruins nations, impoverishes people, and corrupts societies. Only the Elite have anything to gain in a Socialist-Marxist society
People are protesting the government's failed food distribution scheme. People are looting supermarkets, only to find them empty. The government has made a plea to the UN for emergency shipments of medicine. Everything is in short supply because of government mismanagement. From the very beginning of his administration the late dictator Hugo Chavez began planting the seeds of an economic meltdown, and his plan has been continued by his bungling and incompetent successor Nicolas Maduro.
"THERE IS NO FOOD"
Even after all this chaos, misery, pain and suffering, the Socialist disaster in Venezuela continues to have strong support from misguided celebrities, including economist Joseph Stiglitz. All they can see are the well intentioned social programs and wealth redistribution. They refuse to understand how those well intentioned, but ultimately futile Socialist ideas have wrecked the country. Those same celebrities would readily support a similar sort of "Socialism" to be implemented in the United States, and they found the perfect representative in Bernie Sanders.
At some point, people must realize that Marxism and all the ideas the it generated: Socialism, Communism, Fascism, and European style "Democrat Socialism", are ideas that have failed every time they've been tried. No matter how many times history has proven this point, misguided people will continue to live in their own fantasy. However, it appears that Venezuelans have learned bitter truth in the hardest way possible. Next time you, or someone you know, thinks a little Socialism is a good thing make sure you read this article again.
