Every society that has ever adopted socialism ultimately became sick and weak. There are no exceptions.
(Some socialist writers tend to point to countries like Denmark, Norway and Sweden as exceptions; yet those societies rose to power and wealth in past centuries when they were overtly capitalistic and commercial–and have each lost world standing as they embraced more regulation.)
Here is another story about collapsing Venezuela. More and more are now dying in food riots and from petty crime over meals.
Shockingly, Venezuela was a rising society just 20 years ago; before Hugo Chavez took the country on a socialist path.
