“Resisting Tyranny is Obeying God!”
For socialism to pass from the realm of theory to the realm of reality, it must be forced upon a nation.
In other words, implementing socialism makes it necessary to have a totalitarian government.
It’s only by “government decree” that private ownership of houses, lands assets of any kind and the means of producing them are transferred to the state.
“Where do wars come from? Why do people among you fight? It all comes from within, doesn’t it — from your desires for pleasure which make war in your members,” James 4:1.
Winston Churchill made an often quoted comment in how to discern the difference about socialism from communism.
“Capitalism is the unequal distribution of wealth,
Socialism is the equal distribution of poverty,
Communism is socialism with a gun in your back.”
How many Americans, or Free World Countries, REALLY understand what socialism is?
How does a socialist economic system differ from a free market capitalist system?
Is socialism something to be embraced?
Why do many still oppose socialism?
Socialism as an economic philosophy is somewhat an idea that one may take an interest in, but it lives in the realm of theory or potential concepts. Theories, in and of themselves, don’t threaten anyone.
But ideas acted on, do have consequences.
Theories don’t like to be simply hypothetical, they want to take on human flesh and enter the real world.
