As Thomas Sowell writes....
But, by the end of the 20th century, even socialist and communist governments began abandoning central planning and allowing more market competition. Yet this quiet capitulation to inescapable realities did not end the noisy claims of the Left.It amazes me that as our nation stumbles blindly deeper into central government socialism and central planning that more people are not horrified. But what i think that is going on is that the folks have capitulated and are now hunkering down for the upcoming bad times.
In the United States, those claims and policies have reached new heights, epitomized by government takeovers of whole sectors of the economy and unprecedented intrusions into the lives of Americans, of which Obamacare has been only the most obvious example.
