And…The Commies Win

It is the unequal distribution of wealth in capitalism that drives men to dream, create enterprises and expand the economy. That is an anathema to Communism. It is just that simple. See The Two Minute Conservative at: and when you speak ladies will swoon and liberal gentlemen will weep.

It is not up to the economy or the gov. to " equally distribute" the wealth.
This is a fallacy and a fatal conceit of the " fair deal" left that the gov. should
control and distribute wealth created by a free market. Socialism always leads
to a few dictators, or just one, and enables fascism.

I have nothing against Russians or Russia.

As a matter of fact, I studied Russian language and literature in college and have a great deal of sympathy for the Russian people.  They are a country of great artists and poets. But they are still Commies, at least in the sense that Russians have come to know the term.

And that Communist system, which Russians came to know, was barely distinguishable from the Czarist system, except that ordinary people often owned shoes under Communism; and if they lived in cramped tenements, at least they didn’t live in shacks made of straw or wattle.
