Quote of the Day: A reminder about socialism


“Socialism has been tried on every continent of the globe. In the light of its results, it is time to question the motives of socialism’s advocates... The alleged goals of socialism were: the abolition of poverty, the achievement of general prosperity, progress, peace and human brotherhood...  Instead of prosperity, socialism has brought economic paralysis and/or collapse to every country that tried it. The degree of socialisation has been the degree of disaster.”~ Ayn Rand, from her article ‘The Monument Builders'
