It is said that you need to know your enemy and how s/he thinks, to effectively respond and counteract. So the following cartoon is instructive.
It is put out by the California Teachers Association and narrated by Ed Asner, a rich movie star and self-described “socialist.” Socialism and other forms of Statism, as I have explained in the past, are based wholesale upon lies. They promise wealth, and bring improverishment. They promise equality, and bring unfairness. They promise freedom, and bring slavery. They promise happiness, and produce hatred. The video cartoon below illustrates the lies; it calls out for a response from our side…the side of individual liberty, rule of law, protection of human rights (including that of property), and the advancement of free market capitalism…all of which really do produce wealth, equality, freedom, and happiness. (I think Tom Woods at the Mises Institute would be the perfect narrator, by the way.) So here’s a showcase of the HEL (hatred, envy, and lies) put forth by the a certain group of Socialist Statists. Who among us will respond, and speak the truth?
