The six contradictions of socialism in the USSR
There is no unemployment - yet no one is working.
No one is working - yet the factory quotas are fulfilled.
The factory quotas are fulfilled - yet the stores have nothing to sell.
The stores have nothing to sell - yet people's homes are full of stuff.
People's homes are full of stuff - yet no one is happy.
No one is happy - yet the voting is always unanimous.
The six contradictions of socialism in the United States of America
America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized.
Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.
They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.
Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer.
The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.
They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries.
That's pretty good, but when people are dissatisfied, it doesn't mean they want to be more like other countries, it means they want their country and the people in it to continue to improve, to be a better this country.
