Communism, Tyranny, Oppression and Liberty in Early Virginia

Fascinating dynamic: A “company” appointed by the crown and granted land in Virginia oppresses it’s people horribly only to find that the only way the people would prosper was if they were given their own land.

The worldview discussion possible from this article is… Astounding. 🙂


Murray N. Rothbard

The result of this communism was what we might expect: each individual gained only a negligible amount of goods from his own exertions — since the fruit of all these went into the common store — and hence had little incentive to work, or to exercise initiative or ingenuity under the difficult conditions in Virginia. And this lack of incentive was doubly reinforced by the fact that the colonist was assured, regardless of how much or how well he worked, of an equal share of goods from the common store. Under such conditions, with the motor of incentive gone from each individual, even the menace of death and starvation for the group as a whole — and even a veritable reign of terror by the governors — could not provide the necessary spur for each particular man.  

Using the Poor in Venezuela

Using the Poor in Venezuela

Red Venezuela

Communism / Marxism / Socialism do not help the poor, they use the poor.

If you want to help the poor, show them how to change their situation. Stay away from the cruelty of state sponsored wealth distribution.

Or you may end up with the kind of “yiechhhkkchh” going on in Venezuala.

From Yahoo News:

“National Guard soldiers, who have policing powers, used tear gas to repel a small group of opposition candidates near the legislature on a busy downtown street, TV images showed, after they appeared to clash with parliament workers.

“‘We were walking toward the assembly. We were going to read a document, and without warning the National Guard started firing tear gas,’ candidate Stalin Gonzalez told opposition TV station Globovision. The parliament issued a statement accusing the candidates of trying to force their way into the building.”
