Socialism: the big lie

Socialism is the “Big Lie” of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. While it promises prosperity, equality, and security, it has shown itself historically—in the long run—to deliver only mediocrity, poverty, misery, and (ultimately) tyranny.

The theoretical, and much longed-for equality, has never actually been achieved except in the sense that everyone (except the political class, of course) is equal in his or her sharing of the society's scarcity and mediocrity.
