So many times I hear Americans and Westerners criticise socialism calling it communism and other ideologies, not capitalism or democracy. So many times they laugh and scoff at the idea. We hear it daily nearly of the horrors of these systems. 95% of the people who are critical of systems other than capitalism have never left home or lived abroad.
They pretend there are no Westerners in poverty, or homeless. They pretend that they don’t live in a system where everything is owned by a handful of elites and corporations. They pretend that they don’t have a healthcare system that fails and works hand in glove with pharmaceutical companies to milk them. They pretend they don’t have a uniparty aka dictatorship of the many because they get to fake vote. They pretend their dollars are not failing and losing value, they pretend they don’t have open borders and rampant crime.
They pretend the government doesn’t take what they want from the people and simply create on-the-fly laws and mandates to justify it. Americans, Canadians, British, French, etc… Do you not see the hypocrisy in your ideology? How is your capitalism and democracy any better than the things you criticize? You sit in a frying pan and laugh at other countries who may be in boiling water… But the truth they won’t see in the other countries, the “wretched communists China and Russia,” are thriving while the West sinks.
How do you explain this to Westerners? If your systems are so amazing and so superior then why is it failing and riddled with corruption? What of your, “constitution and checks and balances?” The west sounds like the defeated boxer screaming, “I would have won if only my opponent didn’t move or block so much!” So superior are your ways, and your system that you lose educationally, economically, military, morally, etc. Your enemies don’t dare lift a finger against you because you are contagious, you drip with a virus from within and you are your demise. Nothing can surprise me again.
