The Socialist Man is a Lazy Man

-By Warner Todd Huston

On the Ludwig Von Mises Institute website, there is an interesting analysis on the post Katrina failings of socialism employed by the US government to meet with the aftermath of the storms.

Here are the first few paragraphs...

Socialist Man in the Big Easy
By Vedran Vuk

Marxists long theorized that communism would bring about the new socialist man. Through communist programs, man would turn his sole purpose to laboring and struggling for the greater good of the collective.

Through socialist policies and redistribution, New Orleans has raised from its ruin a new socialist man. However, instead of working for the collective, this risen New Orleans man does not work at all. He does not live for the collective but lives at the expense of the collective. This reality is drastically different from what Marxists had in mind when referring to the man created from socialism.

To a person with common sense, this seems like an obvious outcome. If you give money to those who stay unemployed, you are not teaching them to work. Rather, you are teaching them how to survive without working.
_______

Now THAT is a stark realization of the selfishness of man. A selfishness that is best served by capitalism and worst served by socialism.

Warner, Once again, you are right on target! God for you for speaking the truth that many Americans feel are either racist or whatever the deem it to be!

Right on!
