October 2017 marked a very important anniversary, the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik communist revolution in Russia that led to the creation of the Soviet Union.
The 20th century represents, as one major historian has named, “the century of megadeath”; and at the center of that “megadeath” is the great lie and deception, the great evil that was the communist revolution and the communist regime in the Soviet Union.
Soviet communism almost surely led to well over 100 million deaths. Add to that about 300 million deaths that came in the wake of the Maoist communist revolution in China.
Communism isn’t dead. Look at the fact that the Chinese Communist Party is resurgent in China.
The fact is, the worst ideas come with the worst consequences. The deadliest ideas come with the deadliest consequences. And we also need to remember the fact that evil ideas are not only evil, but they tend to stay around for a very long time—with their effects long outlasting the death of their promises.
The California State Senate recently passed legislation creating a government-run, single-payer health care system in the Golden State. The idea is so bad that even Governor Jerry Brown has expressed concerns about it.
What’s wrong with the idea?
It replaces the existing, largely private-sector system and will force people out of the health care plans they currently have. It will lead to the rationing of care and give to government the most intimate and sacred of our health care decisions. And left-wing lawmakers in California want to pay for their socialized health care system with mammoth tax increases, because the cost of their program is estimated to be more than the entirety of the state’s current budget.
Public opinion polls reveal that most Californians are actually opposed to a single-payer health system. Yet, some politicians are following the lead of left-wing demagogues like Bernie Sanders, and pursuing policies that will literally bankrupt the state. Ultimately, California’s voters are the ones who have to say that enough is enough.
Here’s to hoping that they do.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/328023744″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /] Read More »
