Socialism breaks everything it touches–especially people

“You talk about giving everybody something free and all of a sudden, there’s no food to eat.”

First, the common-sense explanation, in the words of the great Vin Scully (via the Power Line blog):


Vin Scully retires at the end of this season, his sixty-seventh year doing what nobody has ever done better. Among other things, he has made some classic calls in the course of a glorious broadcasting career. He may not have ever made a better one than he did during Friday night’s Dodgers-Brewers game (video below): “Socialism, failing to work as it always does. This time in Venezuela. You talk about giving everybody something free and all of a sudden, there’s no food to eat. And who do you think is the richest person in Venezuela? The daughter of Hugo Chavez. Hello.”

As usual, Mr. Scully goes to the heart of the matter with perfect concision. “Only Vin Scully can take down an entire political system between pitches.”

Scully quote via David Hookstead/Daily Caller.

Second, the intellectual explanation, in the words of the great Milton Friedman:

So as this election year marches on, when you hear a progressive politician telling you how their government programs will reduce income inequality, build up the middle class and remove power from greedy corporations, remember that their ideas will really just put more power in the hands of bureaucracies whose self-interest is no more noble or beneficial for your community than that of the corporations they vilify.
