Socialism just doesn’t work. At this point, there’s no arguing this, but it has ardent defenders on par in both veracity and logic with flat-Earthers.
A perfect example, besides every example thus seen so far, is the South American country of Venezuela. There, you have to wait in line for hours just to get a loaf of bread, and they might be out of bread by the time you get there. People are losing weight so drastically — an average of 24 lbs — that it’s become a humanitarian crisis. The lack of everyday goods that you and I take for granted is so bad that the military awards good service with toilet paper.
