Quote of the Day: On socialism's latest inevitable disaster


"When the Berlin Wall fell it was obvious to everyone with eyes to see and a brain to think with that socialism had been tried, and it had failed spectacularly. No one alive at the time could fail to get the lesson: Socialism Sucks.

"But it seems lessons that big have to be relearned every generation: the tragedy of Venezuela should be this generation’s object lesson that Socialism Sucks.
"Socialism [has now come] to Venezuela ... This issue of The Free Radical sends out A Challenge to Young Socialists to watch, and to learn – and to reject this ideological harbinger of misery."
~ PC in the introduction to the Free Radical magazine's Venezuela edition, 2007
