Why Socialism Won't Work
A LESSON THAT OUGHT TO BE TAUGHT EVERY FOUR YEARS IN U.S PUBLIC SCHOOLS
An economics professor at Texas Tech University said he had never
failed a single student before but had, once, failed an
entire class. That class had insisted that socialism worked
and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a
great equalizer. The professor then said ok, we will have an
experiment in this class on socialism.
All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the
same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an
A. After the first test the grades were averaged and
everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset
and the students who studied little were happy. But, as the
second test rolled around, the students who studied little
had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided
they wanted a free ride too; so they studied little. The
second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd
test rolled around the average was an F.
The scores never increased as bickering, blame, name
calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study
for the benefit of anyone else.
All failed, to their greatsurprise. The professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the
effort to succeed is great; but when government takes all
the reward away; no one will try or want to succeed.
Could not be any simpler than this.....The strongest reason for the people to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against the tyranny of government.
That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants.” – Jeff Cooper'
