How to Explain Why Socialism Doesn’t Work in One Sentence

If you ever find yourself at a dinner party with a liberal who goes on and on about health care for all this, tax the rich that, etc., then there’s just one sentence you really need to say. It sums up everything that’s wrong with socialism. You’ll have to go to the Socialism Doesn’t Work blog to find out.

  • I haven’t checked the site, but I think the one sentence I’d use at a dinner party is “If socialism is so great, then I’m going to place your dinner order tonight!”

    Just to show off your ignorance?

  • No Alex, I think you win that showing

  • Yeah… will, that comment is a big fail. Unless you WANT to look like you have no grasp whatsoever on socialism. In that case, here.. *hands you a cookie*

  • OK John. I’ll take the cookie. You can now expound your understanding to the world, and display your undeniable brilliance.

  • Guys i’m in South Africa and by the looks of things my countryis going the socialite route and eish

  • I’d like to say that, despite the beliefs of Glen Beck, not all Liberals are Communists. Universal health care is not communism. Taxing the rich is not communism.
    *bi-partisanship will save America*

  • bi-partisanship will save America-Super high polarzation btwn ideologies is destroying America.

  • Someone who doesn’t want to argue: Maybe you should actually listen to the man’s words before claiming to know his beliefs… looks to me like you’re the one who has communism confused with socialism.

    Everyone should be taxed at the same rate regardless of their income. A healthy society is one that does not ignore the less fortunate. But in the end everyone needs to accept responsibility for their own well being !
