Economics 101: The Reality Of Socialism

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class.

That class had insisted that Bernie Sander’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.

The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Bernie’s plan” All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade, so no one will fail and no one will receive an A.

After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset, and the students who studied little were happy.

As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little, had studied even less. The ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too, so they studied very little as well.

The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the class average was an F.

As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame, and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.

To their great surprise, they ALL failed, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail! When the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all of the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. It could not be any simpler than that.

The 5 Principles Against Socialism

These are possibly the 5 best sentences you’ll ever read and all applicable to this experiment:

  1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

  2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

  3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

  4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

  5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.
