Five Thoughts on Socialism

"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, The creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, Its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery..." -- Winston Churchill
  1. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
  2. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
  3. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
  4. The government cannot give anybody anything that it does not first take from somebody else.
  5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them; and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.
