Why Socialism Doesn’t Work, as Learned by a Waiter

But socialism could never have worked because it is based on false premises about human psychology and society, and gross ignorance of human economy.” – David Horowitz I had a topic in mind for today’s piece, and was set on writing about it when my roommate came home from his new job as a server.

Hillary Clinton: Businesses Don’t Create Jobs; the Government Does

Obama is now campaigning on helping the middle class via “a new economic patriotism.” Never have the words of Samuel Johnson found such undeniable confirmation: “Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel.” What is economic patriotism?
