The Death Spiral of Socialism

Socialism is being marketed to the citizens of America by secular political principalities. They advertise a government system, they say, will make wrongs right, where everyone will be treated equally, and kept safe and secure under government control. They claim the government will provide free things no country has ever been able to afford. This incentivizes the poor and self-entitled by using the sales technique of the carrot in front of the donkey. In reality they are attempting to buy needy people with productive people’s money. This thievery is accomplished by nationalizing businesses, and taxing the rich so they pay upwards of 90% of their income. They call this “paying their fair share.”

 

Socialism tries to accomplish this façade by creating a pyramid system of government. Where the political rulers are the top point and all the people live on the bottom line. This is a government, by the government, where the political elite have ultimate control.

 

America’s form of government is an upside down pyramid. The people control the top line. Their elected Representives are subservient and at the bottom point of the pyramid. This is the people’s government, made for the people, by the people, where the people have ultimate control.

 

One of the biggest reasons socialism dies is because it does not consider the nature of humans. Basic human nature proves, for people to be truly happy and productive, three processes need to be present: first, people must have a belief in God and try to live by His standards of morality; second, people need a functional family to grow from, and third, people need the liberty and freedom to work and strive to create their own destiny.

In America’s form of government, as our Declaration of Independence proudly establishes, the following truths are self-evident: all mankind are created equal and have the God given rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. History proves America’s form of government has created the most freedom and liberty of any country the world has ever seen.  America’s liberty has also caused the biggest individual economic reward system known, which is the liberty and freedom to achieve without oppressive government restrictions. This has opened the horizons of prosperity and happiness to many millions of Americans over our 243 year history.

 

Every Christian should know, socialism is fundamentally the opposite of Christ’s worldview because it seeks to subdue all people according to the dictates of the state. In Galatians 5:1 (NKJV) we are to “Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.” Socialism dissolves liberty and the result is revealed in Proverbs 29:7 (TLB). “The good man knows the poor man’s rights; the godless don’t care.” In America’s form of government, the ‘good’ Founders created a Bill of Rights, which guarantees the liberty of God given rights, and the freedom to exercise those rights.

 

Socialism has proven to rescind the God given rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness through oppressive governmental controls. The socialist collective mentality nationalizes, (the government seizes) major businesses, like Electric and Gas producing companies that start failing almost immediately. This causes great hardship. Oppressive rules and taxes are placed on all enterprises creating barriers to pursue prosperity, and destroy the capability to invent and sell exciting new products. This is the life-threatening reason why socialism implodes. They mismanage what they nationalize, and kill the risk for a reward system human nature desperately needs, that produces great and wonderful prosperity for all. The result, unemployment skyrockets, the poor greatly increase, and cities and factories fall into decay. The regime promises good jobs, good schools, and safe neighborhoods. Instead, their socialist policies increase crime, degrade educational standards, and cause living conditions to become deplorable.

 

Socialism devoid of God’s standard of morality becomes the vehicle that births and then fosters greed, power, and idolatry.  The leaders countless acts of wickedness end up creating a corrupt government that hastens the socialist death spiral. When people start to protest, the regime fears overthrow and create neighborhood watch programs soliciting citizens to spy on one another. Judges are paid to play, and law enforcement morphs into becoming the secret police. They gain the power to search, arrest, and jail without due process. The rule of law is abolished, and the rule of the political elites is established. Everyone on the side of the elites is excused from the law. Crime and corruption becomes the norm and great lawlessness prevails.

In Psalm 1:6 (TLB) the death of socialism is revealed as biblical truth. “…the Lord watches over all the plans and paths of godly men, but the paths of the godless lead to doom.

 

History proves one of the last acts before the death of a socialist government, the military is called upon to protect the political elite from the people. Tyranny, hunger, and despair have become the norm, and citizens either revolt or flee to America. Sadly, when a nation is in great misery the past shows the people see revolution or escape as their only end to this anarchy.

 

Nehemiah 9:37 (TLB) biblically predicts America’s future if we let Socialism be established.  “The lush yield of this land passes into the hands of the kings (rulers) whom you (God) have allowed to conquer us because of our sins. They have power over our bodies (no rights of conscience) and our cattle, (no ownership of property) and we serve them at their pleasure (lawful oppression) and are in great misery.”

 

Socialism becomes like death: it cannot be satisfied, it can only be killed.
