To the Cretins Who Think Socialism and Communism Are Good Ideas

It is becoming increasingly apparent that significant swathes of the American public, especially the young, are proponents of socialism and communism. Or at least what they believe socialism and communism to be, anyway.

Of course, anyone remotely familiar with history and human nature knows that equality can exist only at the expense of liberty — or worse. Or, as Rush put it, “the trees are all kept equal by hatchet, axe, and saw”.
