this is a very good essay by George Orwell about socialism. He writes that the goal of socialism is not utopia, but human brotherhood. The goal is to make a Scrooge and a Tiny Tim impossible. isn't that noble?
Lmao, that is utopian. There's a reason why Orwell's variant of Democratic Socialism was an evolutionary dead end, overshadowed by the authoritarian nature of Marxism which he (rightfully) railed against on the one hand, and the far more socially and practically acceptable Social 'capitalism with some gibs' Democracy on the other.

Socialism is Santa Claus for stupid, useless slobs that don't want to work for a living and it's pretty much the jackpot for the elite that sell you on the raw deal.

"Human Brotherhood" is a fucking myth. There will always be a Scrooge, there will always be a Tiny Tim. No economic system drafted up by a bum that never worked a day in his fucking life is going to change that.

Only if you know in your heart of hearts you'll never be good enough to earn Scrooges' money, and evil enough to think you have the right to take it away from him because you're stupid enough to think you know better than him (and everyone else) as to how he should spend it.

It's a goddamned fever dream by assholes who think they're smart enough to outpace the entire human condition. It's killed 120,000,000 people -- and counting.

It helps that Marx was too stupid to understand what a Pareto distribution is. His dipshit worshippers are just as guilty of this, partially because they're indoctrinated by literal cultists in academia, who have told them that anyone saying anything different is the devil. The 80/20 rule is a universal law, and no amount of "human brotherhood" -- read: "things will be different when we get a charismatic enough dictator in charge!" -- will magically rewrite reality.

If you really want to end poverty, you gotta drag the minimum up. You'll still have your Tiny Tim, but he'll have a plasma TV and a 100 meg internet connection. But that's what Capitalism does, not Socialism.

There's a reason why China has such an issue with brain drain at one point before Deng came by and decided to embrace capitalism and China is forced to steal most of their technological advantages. A friend of mine had a grandfather who was wealthy among his community in China, and also helped whenever he could, donating a lot of his wealth back into the community. When the Great Leap Forward came, the government took everything from them and left the family with nothing. Any intelligent person will realize there was no point to staying around if all your hard work can just be taken away, and after the Tianmen Square massacre gave their children basically a free refugee pass into America, the smart people fucked off as quickly as possible to America, because FUCK having a government punish you because you're smart and know how to be successful.

I'd like to point out the fact that Socialist Monopoly only has 2 properties per color around the whole board, which was normally limited to the starter ghetto properties of Dark Purple Mediterranian & Baltic and Dark Blue Park Place & Boardwalk; every other property chain had 3. Even the simplified Monopoly Junior has 3-space properties to monopolize, meaning Socialist Monopoly is literally for r-tards.

Uh, huh. "Confusingly money is paid from the community fund to a private bank". You know that shit happened in the UK in 2007/2008? The public literally had to buy a bunch of failing banks.
The US and Canada do the same by buying majority stakes in companies to bail them out.... banks get money with no strings though.
