“Everything is dangerous, my dear fellow.”…
The bane of my existence is the politician who, in the name of public safety, seeks to legislate the fun, or the taste, out of life…. for the good of the people.

It sounds good, I’ll be the first one to admit. The one inescapable problem is this: If you don’t have to work, who in their right mind would?! And therein lies the rub, and why Socialism always implodes under its own weight. Always.
Wilde once wrote that the way to deal with poverty was to make poverty impossible. Ask the dumpster divers in Venezuala how that’s working. By trying to make poverty impossible, Socialism makes poverty inescapable.
