SOCIALIST MYTHS: #1...The Rich get richer, and the poor get poorer???

This is possibly the most persistent lie of the socialist shell game. It is based on the incomprehensible idea that there is a finite amount of wealth, resources and most illogically of all, human industriousness in the world.

Their logic goes that if I earn a dollar, then that is one less dollar that can be earned by anyone else. Rubbish.

Money is made. It is manufactured by man and is used to trade goods and services for other goods and services. There is no limit to the amount of money that can be made. To think so is to believe that there is a limit to the ingenuity, spirit and industry of man as a rational animal.

The fact is that there is an infinite amount of money to be made, the socialist complaint stems from the fact that they aren’t, merely by virtue of their existence, entitled to profit from your use of resources and your personal industriousness.

But that is really what they want. They want you to work hard… for them, and they want to enslave you by deciding just how much of your own production you need.

They seek to rob you of the reward of your effort, to steal your hard won earnings and give them to those that can’t, won’t or don’t deserve it.

It’s the ultimate power that they want. The control of intellect, labour, initiative and production. They want to build the ultimate cleptocracy where anything that can be made, imagined or built by a man can be taken from him and given to those that do not have the capacity, intelligence, will or ambition to make it, imagine it or build it for themselves.
