Leftism is always self-limiting. Always. As a wise woman once said, you eventually run out of other people’s money…
Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards withdrew,
And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true
That All is not Gold that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four—
And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.
MOST societies are not strong enough to suffer Leftism for long. And it always gains “currency” among middle- or upper-class strivers, and those protected by free markets. While, in the words of a friend who grew up behind the Iron Curtain, Those of us who have once been forced to drink from the bitter cup of Leftism are not eager to again stain our lips…
Funny, that. But it makes sense. Young Lefty firebrands believe (often correctly) that they are safe from the doom that comes with Leftism.
Lefties, don’t you even wonder that there IS no Lefty paradise? Could it be that Leftism is a dog that don’t hunt?
