The time is fleeting as summer will be over before we realize it. And with that, our children and grandchildren will return to the laboratories of progressive socialist indoctrination. Therefore, it is time we had a course of our own, “The Absurdity of Socialism 101.”
First, we need to let our young people know that socialism has nothing to do with social media. We need to begin with the understanding of this simple maxim, “a free people are not equal, and an equal people are not free.” The basic premise of socialism is the insidious notion of social egalitarianism, making everyone equal in some form, as mandated, dictated, by a central government. The basic tenets of a socialist economic model are wealth redistribution, nationalizing of economic production, expansion of a welfare state, social equality, and secular humanism. Not even one of these principles is in keeping with the fundamentals of our constitutional republic.
