Why do national socialism, international socialism, marxism, leninism, maoism, stalinism, collectivism, communism – did I forget one – oh yes, redistributionism and economic egalitarianism always fail?
Simple. Prosperity is a by product of liberty. The evidence is everywhere one looks. If any of these brands of socialism worked then, Russia would be an economic giant today with North Korea playing catch-up. There are many highly educated people on the left who do not believe, understand or accept this truth.
