Why haven’t we heard more about the great socialist paradise of Venezuela? People are starving. There are food shortages, electric shortages and rampant inflation. The country is in a death spiral.
Bernie Sanders, self avowed socialist, would take us down the same road. Hillary eschews the word “liberal” or “socialist” but calls herself a “progressive.” It’s all the same political philosophy. Big government knows more about what is good for you than you do. It is government of the elites by the elites for the elites not government of the people by the people and for the people. In a recent discussion with a leftist, liberal, progressive friend I asked how socialism was working out in Venezuela. He hadn’t heard anything about it.
There is always some greater cosmic good which allows the left to bask in their work for “the greater good” while destroying the lives of families and individuals. All great movement leaders like Mao Tse Tung, Joseph Stalin and Adolph Hitler had the same thought process. The “greater good” triumphs everything. The far off Utopian socialist dream is always out there. If they just had a little more power over We the Stupid People they could create that Utopian world.
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” – Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Reich Minister of Propaganda
The American Leftists like Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama all share the same idea that the ends justifies the means with terrorists like Iran, Isis, Al-Qaeda, and Boko Haram. They all seek to vilify those who oppose them. Attack any opposition swiftly and severely. Lies don’t matter. There is no Truth. Just ask the hero of the American Left, Saul Alinsky (a Hillary Clinton hero) who dedicated his book to Lucifer.
Venezuela’s current leader Madura can do nothing but blame America. He rants that it is the fault of the great Satan America while his people starve and riot and seek to replace this heir to Hugo Chavez.
Remember Obama smiling and embracing Chavez? Remember Obama’s FCC czar Mark Lloyd praising the great revolutionary ideas of Chavez in Venezuela? No you probably don’t. You probably never heard about it or it seemed irrelevant at the time. Now you know why we don’t hear about the great works of socialist, progressivism that Bernie espoused and that Hillary’s [policies will lead us to.
