The Twentieth Century “should teach you all you need to know about socialism.” The Social and economic theories of Socialism were literally tested to destruction from 1917 to 1991, at the cost of millions of lives lost, and hundreds of millions of lives blighted by this worthless ideology. Kady has a point about Curacao not being a text-book example of a Capitalist economy, but Venezuela is a perfect example of a Socialist one!

Thanks for your post: It makes a nice rebuttal of the “dimwit college kid whining about how “unfair” capitalism is.”

And it is still true to say “Curacao (CAPITALISM) is just 30 minutes by plane from Venezuela (SOCIALISM) where the currency is worthless and people are starving.”
