On Why Socialism Never Succeeds

Socialism does work if you want to kill more people for political, racial, ethnic, or religious nonconformity than any other movement in history. It works so well at such brutal efforts.

Those who tout how wonderful European socialism is, want us to forget that most of Europe (the vast territory from the middle of Germany east to the Urals) was very socialist until a couple of decades ago... and this vast, territory was a page upon which misery, mass executions, starvation, and many human rights abuses were written until about 1989.

The relative kindness and well being in the Western European nations has been due to how much they have limited socialism (not due to how much they have embraced)
