The world has received a taste of Socialism as a result of the Corona-Virus pandemic and I hope they are as nauseous as me. For government’s have ruled what is “an essential” business and can therefore stay open while others were forced to close. Businesses that existed were suddenly forced to produce products they didn’t want to, sell it to whom they had no desire and at a price way below market conditions. Don’t get me wrong many of these policies were necessary in the times we are under but it doesn’t make this medicine taste any better. The insane thing about it is I believe many would love the government control to continue with their strong arm but for me I’m ready to move on to a whole new dish, freedom.
Socialism creates it’s own form of chains that capture the mind, body and souls of those locked under it’s grasp. For initially socialism gives you “everything” for free but the cost is your own independence and self assurance. Socialism will take over your medical care but with no profit incentives for doctors, drug companies or hospitals care will decline precipitously until you’ll wait 6 months for even a minor surgery. Less and less innovation will create shortages on our land which previously were only seen in Venezuela or Cuba. This will occur in banking and every area that socialistic policies take over. Yet they will make the individual feel as if they are dependent on the government monopoly and continue to vote them in even as the government slowly moves freedom over the cliff. Socialism like a lobster in a slowly cooked pot of water will take away one’s freedom until there is nothing left but the bones.
