Is there a perfect storm brewing for Socialism reemergence in the USA?
The Chicago Tribune article titled, Socialism fails time and time again, but woke and broke millennials love it, reports:
“Why do polls show that a majority of American millennials have a favorable view of socialism?”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate ancient wisdom to the current climate of political beliefs of Socialism rising in American Politics.
As a dog returns to its vomit, so fools repeat their folly. (proverb 26:11)
What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:9),
The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice. (Proverb 12:15)
The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty. (Proverb 22:3)
What’s My Point?
If we consider the current National Debt of 23 trillion dollars, and “The top one percent of the usual income distribution holds over $25 trillion in wealth, which exceeds the wealth of the bottom 80 percent,” along of the amount of school debt owed by millennials, it is no wonder that millennials are primed up to the idea of Socialism.
Then add the decrease of Christianity and people taught to understand religious and Bible values which oppose Socialism, and the 2020 election a year away, the perfect storm is brewing in the USA by millennials who are listening to political promises.
In My Opinion
I agree with the writers closing statement.
“And unfortunately, when socialists gain power, the don’t destroy just themselves. They usually take everyone else down with them.”
In a previous post, I made a suggestion how to reduce the National Debt by taxing the people who will not complain in accordance to a King Solomon proverb.
The perfect storm has been brewing for three decades in the USA.
According to King Solomon, only fools will ignore prudent advice and suffer the consequences.
How did King Solomon’s Reign End – Excerpt?
“What turned Solomon from the right path? Was its greed? Yes. Was it the foreign entanglements ignited by that greed and desire for power? Yes. Was its corruption by the world that greed, foreign entanglements and admiration of foreign ways caused? Surely. Was it lust? Clearly. Was it the inappropriate relationships and marriages that the lust caused? Yes. Did Solomon come to love the world more than God? Surely. Did lust and greed cause him to make steady compromises with the world? Without a doubt. And ever so slowly and perhaps imperceptibly at first, he began to turn from God. “

Is there a correlation of the USA reign to King Solomon’s reign if you compare his ending to the same questions of the present course of USA?
If after reading the Chicago Tribune article, do you agree with the following writer’s statement?
“Regrettably, sometimes the naïve and disaffect must relearn that their Pie-in-sky socialist medicine is far worse that the perceived malady of inequality.”
What suggestion would you make to the politicians to avert the perfect storm brewing in the USA other than Socialism?
