Socialism Is An Epic Fail And A Fundamentally Immoral One
SEE HERE The Catholic Church through the voice of the magisterium has condemned socialism across the board. It is a fundamentally immoral system without redeeming value. I always liked Margaret Thatcher's statement, "Socialism is great until you run out of other people's money." No doubt that was a joke but even in the humor the fundamental immorality is clear. It is always immoral to take by force from some to distribute the fruits of their labors to others no matter how deserving. It is the posturing that the state can distribute goods better than those who actually earned them that is at the heart of the evil. It begins by involving immoral takings and it goes on to compound the problem with pride and avarice and favoritism on the part of those entrusted with the distribution of goods gained through force.
