Bill de Blasio, eco-hypocrite and giver of taxpayer-funded tampons, gave an interview to the New Yorker. They covered all sorts of topics. Among them? Billiam took a giant dump on capitalism and the Constitution. For holding him back from having absolute power over the people of New York City.
What’s been hardest is the way our legal system is structured to favor private property.
Pause. Duh. Because America is not a kingdom made of serfs. Assh*le.
I think people all over this city, of every background, would like to have the city government be able to determine which building goes where, how high it will be, who gets to live in it, what the rent will be.
Another pause. No they wouldn’t, as they’re living in AMERICA not communist China.
I think there’s a socialistic impulse, which I hear every day, in every kind of community, that they would like things to be planned in accordance to their needs. And I would, too. Unfortunately, what stands in the way of that is hundreds of years of history that have elevated property rights and wealth to the point that that’s the reality that calls the tune on a lot of development.
So, property rights and wealth are bad? Karl Marx himself couldn’t have said it better. Hats off to you, comrade.
Billy-Jean de Blasio seems to think socialism is the bee’s knees. Except there’s over a hundred years’ worth of history and a buttload of mass graves to the contrary. Planned economies are great. If the goal is to run your country into the ground, that is. Just ask Venezuelans how that socialism is treating them. They have neither property rights nor wealth. But misery aplenty. Socialism’s not working out for them as well as they’d hoped. That’s usually how it goes with a system which flips human nature the bird.
Even though he doesn’t mention it by name, the “history” Billy boy is talking about is the Constitution. Checks, balances, and individual rights keep leftists, like him, from turning all their whims into reality. Erecting little fiefdoms all over the city, while he lives in palaces of splendor.
In fact, the Constitution exists specifically to keep people like de Blasio from laying his grubby hands all over people’s stuff. The Founding Fathers had this crazy idea that government mucks up everything it touches. Spoiler alert: government mucks up everything it touches (read YOUR TAX DOLLARS: Government Wasted Hundreds of Thousands on ‘Why LGBT People Drink’).
People like de Blasio and Bernie Sanders hype up socialism as the ultimate solution for all of society’s ills. They make it sound all warm and cozy, while glossing over the not-so-great parts. And, believe me, the not-so-great parts are as numerous as sexually transmitted diseases at Burning Man. Without the numbing effects of Mary Jane vapors.
It doesn’t matter how benevolent or “democratic” socialist evangelists make Marxism out to be. In the end, it leaves everyone starving and miserable like fat feminists at a yoga fashion outlet.
More on that…
