Socialism is imploding in South America. People have died and are dying because of the ‘system’ on the continent. What was once called “The Pink Tide”, the rise of socialist leaders in Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina, Ecuador, and Bolivia at the turn of the century has become a nightmare. The Pink Tide has evaporated with economic dysfunction, hunger, chaos, and state dependent cronies scurrying on the mud flats in its wake.
Socialism is a failed 20th Century system. In an increasingly decentralized world the command and control, top down system makes no sense. It is anathema to progress. In many ways socialism, dressed up as social justice, is just the continuation of the serfdom much of the world has suffered under for centuries. There are different guys in charge. But basically, socialism, statism on steroids, rife with cronyism always, works the same way.
Socialism is like a timeshare. It sounds great when you buy it but you spend a lifetime wishing you never did.
ACC is a completely non-partisan organization. We do not support/endorse or oppose any candidate for office. We believe that both major parties are heavily influenced by special interests and will report on crony capitalism wherever and whenever we see it.
