Garrett julian.garrett@legis.iowa.gov Why Socialism Always Fails You might think that with all the unsuccessful attempts to establish a socialist society over the centuries, that no one would take socialism seriously in the modern day. Yet the idea of "socialism" as an ideal society seems to be stronger than ever in our politics. Senator Sanders is the primary example because he has been a self-labeled socialist for many years. There is a whole new crop of politicians on the left now advocating for socialism. The amazing part is that they seem to be taken seriously be a section of the American public, especially younger voters. Most probably don't know that socialism has been tried over and over again over many centuries (it's not a new idea) and it has always failed. Why does it always fail? The answer is simple. It flies in the face of human nature. Socialists assume that people will work and produce things. They take that as a given Their role then, is to make sure that what is produced is fairly distributed. Yes, it is a great benefit to a political leader to have the power to determine how things that have been produced will be distributed. What power! So, what is the problem? People just don't work very hard if they don't get to keep most of what they produce. It is that simple. The early American settlements of Jamestown and Plymouth Rock initially tried to implement socialist economies, with all production being distributed equally among the population. They nearly died out because not much was produced since people had no incentive to work to produce even food. Only after giving each person a parcel of land and allowing the owner to keep and sell what was produced were they able to survive. The most recent example is Venezuela, once the most prosperous Latin American nation. Now after years of socialism and dictatorship, it is in chaos with people near starvation. The government only holds on because of the support of the army. (It has been illegal for most of the public to own guns since 2012.) Of course, we know about the Soviet Union that tried for decades to implement socialism but collapsed from within. Cuba has been an economic failure for decades. China had to adopt free enterprise principles to get its economy going after trying unsuccessfully for years to make socialism work. Perhaps, more important that the failures, is the fact that there are no socialist success stories. Sweden used to be cited as a socialist success story. However, Sweden, though it has an expensive welfare system, does not have a socialist economy. It is hard to predict what will happen to the current socialist movement in the U.S. There are obviously many people in our country who do not know the history of socialism in the world. Hopefully they will not become the majority. As always please feel free to contact me with your ideas or concerns. Deadline for all legals, news stories, and advertising is noon on Fridays.
