"Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it." - Thomas Sowell

Any economic system which steals wealth from Peter and redistributes to Paul is flawed on the most fundamental human rights level. Socialism is predicated on the idea that each citizen is owned (at least to some degree) by the government.

Even under the most ideal circumstances, Socialism and liberty cannot coexist.
