We have much more to say about this in our blog post, "Socialism and Communism Destroy Nations".
1. SOCIALISM/COMMUNISM IS BASED ON STEALING FROM OTHERS - According to Karl Marx and modern socialists, wealth should be seized by a powerful ruling class and redistributed to the rest of society.
If you plan to redistribute everyone’s wealth, you need to take it first, and the only way to do that is to seize control of societal institutions and then force people to give up their wealth.
2. SOCIALISM/COMMUNISM IS A MAGIC TRICK - The government gets to decide what to do with YOUR money.
People are inherently greedy and evil, so the government (which is just made up of people and THEIR ideas) are using YOUR money (money which they did not earn but took) in order to use it for whatever THEIR heart desires (whether it helps the poor or not; and usually it doesn't).
3. SOCIALISM/COMMUNISM ALWAYS ENDS IN BLOOD SHED - Throughout the passed 100 years, whenever Socialism/Communism/Marxism is initiated on a large scale, it ends up in blood shed. It's not a small list either!
Some examples are: Angola (1977), Cambodia (1975), Nazi Germany (1930s and '40s), Cuba and China (1959), Romania (1946), Vietnam (1960s), Zimbabwe (1983), Venezuela (today), etc.
