While most socialist governments eventually collapse, there are a few that are successful and effective, and are used as a shining example of the glories of socialism. The hopes of American socialists, for making America another shining example of socialism, has already been destroyed, beyond repair, by oppressive politicians.
There is one key attribute of any government system, but more apparent in socialism, that means the difference between success and failure as a government. That one attribute is fear. Fear of the government by the citizens, to be sure, but more importantly, fear of the citizens by the government.
History has consistently proven that for any government system to be successful, and remain in power, there must be a form of somewhat mutual respect and trust, between the government and the citizens. That is why a government collapse is more pronounced in socialist systems- socialism intends to make all citizens equal, which should naturally create mutual respect and trust. But, failed socialism tends to firmly divide the ruling class from the working class.
Fear of the citizens leads dictators into committing oppression, as a way to control the people. Throughout the Covid plandemic, politicians loudly proclaimed their disrespect and coldheartedness for the people of this nation, in their selfish power-grabbing tactics. And, throughout the plandemic, the fear and distrust of government officials, by most citizens, far outweighed the fear of the virus.
Then, the very first act of our socialist presidency was to barricade themselves behind miles of razor wire and concrete, and surround themselves with 20,000 body-shields (disarmed guardsmen). This is clear proof that the government is deathly afraid of the citizens, and that they strongly feel that we have a definite reason to rise up against them.
Add to all this, the constant screaming by socialist politicians for gun control and disarming of the citizens. This proves they have absolutely no respect for our personal safety, and an intense fear of us. And, government corruption always increases alongside gun-control.
On the other hand, look at the one shining example of socialism that they are usually pointing to- Switzerland. It is one of the few successful socialist governments in the world, and has one of the highest levels of mutual trust and respect between citizens and government officials. And the government of Switzerland actually encourages its citizens to own guns.
A government which puts guns into the hands of the citizens, is a government that trusts its citizens, and is a government that can be trusted. But, a government that oppresses its citizens out of fear, is a government already in a death spiral.
As I mentioned in The New Normal- What To Expect, And How To Prepare For It When things get out of control, the government will go into self-preservation mode. While they once seduced people with the words “free, free, free”, and bought votes with entitlements, they will eventually maintain control by force. When the government checks start running out, or become worthless, there is only one way to stay in power. The kinder, gentler socialism they promised always evolves into tyranny. We got a hint of this in the coronavirus shutdowns, by the way government officials stripped Americans of constitutional rights, destroyed businesses, and threatened the peasants with fines and imprisonment for violating their personally created rules.
