Why Socialism MUST ultimately be totalitarian
Why Socialism produces poverty.
Many of the things that are refered to as “capitalist” are not free enterprise, but are monopolist. Communism is a state monopoly; which is not unlike the monopoly robber barrons. Communism is just a BIGGER monopoly.
“Protectionism, Socialism, and Communism are the same plant,
in three stages of development.” Frederick Bastiat
A communist is just a socialist; who is in a hurry.
Socialism MUST ultimately be totalitarian.
The basic premise of Socialism is:
“To each according to his need.
From each according to his ability”.
Giving to each according to his need cannot be accomplished
without getting from each according to his ability.
Getting from each according to his ability cannot be accomplished
without one of two incentives:
There are two types of incentives:
Reward  or punishment
Very rarely, is it possible to provide psychological rewards that
will replace material rewards. The exception would be among
people of strong religious faith.
“To each according to his need” usually implies that material rewards cannot exist.
More or better work does NOT bring more or better rewards.
You are rewarded in accordance with your NEED;
which is not greater because you have been more productive, or more creative.
This is why every form of socialism MUST be totalitarian.
Force is needed to require labor from people;
who are not allowed to keep the fruits of their own labor.
Even with forced work quotas, productivity is minimal.
Free societies have millions of salesmen trying to market the excess.
Socialist societies have millions of ration clerks trying to divide up the shortages.
The cliché is that social economies are based on two pretenses:
The people pretend to work
The government pretends to pay them.
Have you ever noticed which countries GIVE foreign aid,
and which countries RECEIVE foreign aid?
Where is the “bread basket of the world”?
Socialism has its greatest impact on creativity.
Creativity cannot be forced.
In what country was the telephone invented?
In what country was the airplane invented?
In what country was the light bulb invented?
In what country was the cotton gin invented?
In what country was the computer invented?
In what country was the automobile invented?
Do your own Google search
You will find HUNDREDS of inventions listed, along with the date,
and the country where it was invented.
Try to find an invention that was invented under Socialism.
The only time that you will find an invention, that was invented under Socialism,
will be when the invention serves to needs of the state (weapons of war etc.)
In what country was electricity discovered?
In what country was atomic energy discovered?
What made “the Dark Ages” so dark?
There was an absence of liberty; world wide
If you think that Socialism is our future,
study up on the dark ages.

Once upon a time, on a farm in Arkansas, there was a little red hen
who scratched about the barnyard until she uncovered quite a few grains
of wheat.
She called all of her neighbors together and said, “If we plant this
wheat, we shall have bread to eat. Who will help me plant it?”
“Not I,” said the cow.
“Not I,” said the duck.
“Not I,” said the pig.
“Not I,” said the goose.
“Then I will do it by myself,” said the little red hen. And so she
did; The wheat grew very tall and ripened into golden grain.
“Who will help me reap my wheat?” asked the little red hen.
“Not I,” said the duck.
“Out of my classification,” said the pig.
“I’d lose my seniority,” said the cow.
“I’d lose my unemployment compensation,” said the goose.
“Then I will do it by myself,” said the little red hen, and so she
At last it came time to bake the bread. “Who will help me bake the
bread?” asked the little red hen.
“That would be overtime for me,” said the cow.
“I’d lose my welfare benefits,” said the duck.
“I’m a dropout and never learned how,” said the pig.
“If I’m to be the only helper, that’s discrimination,” said the goose.
“Then I will do it by myself,” said the little red hen.
She baked five loaves and held them up for all of her neighbors to
see. They wanted some and, in fact, demanded a share.
But the little red hen said, “No, I shall eat all five loaves.”
“Excess profits!” cried the cow.
“Capitalist leech!” screamed the duck.
“I demand equal rights!” yelled the goose.
The pig just grunted in disdain.
And they all painted “Unfair!” picket signs and marched around and
around the little red hen, shouting obscenities.
When the government agent came, he said to the little red hen, “You
must not be so greedy.”
“But I earned the bread,” said the little red hen.
“Exactly,” said the agent. “That is what makes our free enterprise
system so wonderful. Anyone in the barnyard can earn as much as he
wants. But under our modern government regulations, the productive
workers must divide the fruits of their labor with those who are lazy and
And they all lived happily ever after, including the little red hen,
who smiled and clucked, “I am grateful, for now I truly understand.”
But her neighbors became quite disappointed in her, for she never
again baked any more bread.
