Delusions of Grandeur: Socialism Is A Fool’s Errand

It’s hard enough to plan and manage one’s own individual life, is it not? It’s foolish to think you can even plan the life of another single individual…You can’t!…But to believe that you can plan the lives of hundreds of millions of people? This is a complete fantasy!

..The Rothchild jew Manifesto
….Historically-all you need to understand……….
“The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or be so dependent upon its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.”

Can't we just deport E. Warren? She is against everything that made America great. We used to deport socialist communists and spend zillions trying to root them out. Now the groovy beans democrats want her a self proclaimed socialist to run the country? This is proof our educational system is failing the people.

Ron paul is naive. How can you teach morality to Americans who skin their son's penises so they live in misery for all their life.

@2:20 Paul states that people were given lands and then prospered, this wasn’t capitalism, this was socialism that allowed these individuals to prosper/capitalize

Dr. Paul we need a raw milk revolution since you reminded me about raw milk 7 years ago have been drinking ever since.
and have great health for a 59-year-old mechanic. If everyone started drinking tomorrow the medical system would take a major hit. I have helped several people and their health has also improved. I owe you for this. and spread the word everyday.
Thank you!

Libertarianism is a thing of past. There is a talk in the town about a new ideaology. Its called propertarianism. What are your thoughts on that Dr Paul.

Forgiving debt for working people is socialism? But not forgiving it for wallst? Dr. Paul is a good man but a bit misguided. Do we not have social programs in our country that are massively popular?
Dr. Paul acts like Bernie wants to give everyone rationed food and housing. We want to take the load off of working people's back…

Is being anti war communist?
Is it communist to want your fellow American citizens to NOT get Into massive debt by going to the hospital? Or NOT wanting to pay the highest prices in pharmaceutical drugs?

I agree CIA style socialism is not a system at all just an excuse to commit genocide of some format or another. Socialism without CIA totalitarianism is nothing more than evolutionary stage of society that naturally aims towards liberty and capitalism in various stages it takes time to evolve from a Plymouth colony into a nation. It's common sense. Everybody wants to eat the fruit without planting the tree and watering it. The fruit is liberty. Socialism is a viable notion for a small village or small nation not a full sized nation like ours. Socialism is not needed for… Read more »

Equality is a great thing. But what socialist don't understand is that an egalitarian society's guiding principle is "equality of opportunity". The state should provide certain services (privileges) that will ensure this, such as public universities and hospitals. Is it more efficient if the free market handle these things exclusively? Maybe, maybe not, but a rich society ought to be able to afford it, and it does give people fewer things to worry about.

"This country has socialism for the rich, and rugged individualism for the poor." Martin Luther King Jr. said in 1968. He was killed the same year.

Well, Genius, living on the street or in your car, eating from garbage cans, doing without any health care —ESPECIALLY DENTISTRY— ain’t too damn much fun, either!Dr Paul, you’re damn fine at theorizing, but when push comes to shove, you’re nowhere to be found!Meritocracy as the deciding factor of who should live, learn and earn more is a phony theory. We got millions of filthy rich useless or evil people here in America.I’m a Christian; therefore I am a Socialist. Politically I’m Progressive. I’m also damn near as old as you, and I’m retired from a government job.

AIPAC millionaire Pelosi is on a fool's errand in Honduras. Definitely NOT representing US citizens. What exactly is she doing mingling with the CIA? We need more socialism and less oligarchism. More billionaires appear year by year while conditions for the 99% are getting worse and worse. We don't even have our Bill of Rights. Every billionaire represents a public policy failure. Predatory totalitarianism certainly does NOT provide more "freedom" than socialism. We have socialism for the 1% and wage slavery and police repression for the taxpayer. Jeffrey Epstein says all you need to know about the regime in DC.

socialism already failed. Injecting failed banks with easy credit have failed. Injecting failed corporations with easy credit have failed. Injecting those book stores with easy credit failed, no one buy books, everyone use iPad. Fascism / national socialism / socialism only worked to create zombie jobs, but eventually it will collapse under the amount of debt it have and misallocation of resources because it always evolved to "connection based" instead of meritocracy. it's already "socialism for the insolvent "rich" / corporations, capitalism for the people", so it's unlikely the future will be capitalism. The decision power is already too centralized… Read more »

as if Republican and Democratic spending weren't bad enough…add socialism to the mix and now you have a real disaster in the making… these are some of the destructive forces of our times, facilitated by the Fed… the answers exist, and there is an antidote to all that … it is Dr. Ron Paul, dedicated to the cause of liberty and peace, his many friends and the Ron Paul Liberty Report…. unfortunately in the upcoming election, it doesn't look like we are going to have much of a choice… the Liberty movement, however, is one of ideas and an idea… Read more »

Dr. Ron, if you don't want socialism then you are going to have to wipe out the entire $1 trillion annual socialist, tax payer subsidized, handout for the US military industrial complex budget, and subsequently you will need to be fine with the US economy collapsing into a 3rd world economy at the moment you do that, if you do not balance that out elsewhere. Also, you will need to give up GPS, freeways, X-ray machines, MRI machines, radar systems, cell phones, telephones, jet airplanes, satellites, clean public water, robust sewer systems, and transistors, all initially subsidized by the US… Read more »

The valves have been diverted. The weirs have been built. The Dams are complete. Myriad structures have been put in place to make certain that the wealth continues to flow from the poor to the rich. When we speak social democracy we are speaking about “correcting“ the gross artificial diversion of wealth from the working class to the ultra wealthy. We are not against private property or the gains of enterprise. We are against 1 person possessing the property of 99 and the 1 using the 99 against one another and dominating them through threat. I love you Dr. Paul… Read more »

If regulated Democratic Socialism is a "fools errand" then why is the main focus of both the CIA and the FBI (and the main reason they were created in the 1st place) to Detect and Destroy ALL Socialist movements/candidates in the U.S. or ANYWHERE ELSE in the world? If it does not work why all the trouble to stop it? Why not just let it ruin itself? And why is Socialism used in the U.S. to pay for our local fire department and police force and infrastructure? This is the one issue Ron Paul that you and ALL OTHER Libertarians… Read more »

before socialism is attacked, let's look what American capitalism has given us: the worst inequality in world history/the new gilded age; trillion dollar military spending and endless war; an economy dominated by large corporations which monopolize and siphon wealth from the american people; the highest cost of healthcare in the world; some of the most expensive land in the world; a homeless crisis in all of our cities; a corrupted political system bought off by big money; a billionaire president who inherited millions, gave a massive tax break to the wealthiest raising taxes on everyone else; a stock market/wall street… Read more »

!!!!! WE NEED A DICTATORSHIP !!!!The argument for a dictatorship! Why are you people so anti dictators? Imagine if America was a dictatorship, you could let 1% of the people have all the world's wealth, you could help all your rich friends get richer by capping their taxes and bailing them out when they Gamble and lose. You could ignore the needs of the poor for healthcare and education. You're media could appear free but secretly be controlled by one person and his family. You could wire tap and collect all Communications of every citizen from birth and use it… Read more »

You've gotten Socialism wrong. At least for China it is not entirely correct but thats ok honest mistake.
Western Socialism may not work especially in the case of Americans who claim to be Socialist which I doubt people really knows. Socialism is not the same as fascism, Nazi Germany would be n example of Socialism tirned fascist. In this day nd age Capitalist empires also become fascist.

Chinese Socialism and Cuba works fine, they have applied different forms of socialism. The totalitarianism in the eastern context is also been misapplied.

It is the megacoporations that love socialism because it eliminates all competition with the high taxes. Small business fail so the population only has one option for products and that is the ones of the megacorporations. Jobs will be gone because the high taxes will dissuade anyone from creating products here they’d rather save money by having their products made by nearly cheap slave labor in Asia and the third world. It’s not that we have no soul I would like socialism if the corporations stayed I would be totally for it but as we see in Sweden their largest… Read more »

I like you, Mr. Paul, but I get really annoyed when I hear the word "socialism" tossed around–by anyone. The US does have some "socialist" programs now–our tax dollars fund the police, the fire departments and, of course, the military. I have not heard any candidate–any person, period, for that matter–say that they want a "socialist" nation. What I have heard is that there are a few more things that should fall under the same umbrella when it comes to where our tax dollars are spent. I'm all for a universal healthcare, for example. And it seems like we should… Read more »
