The Gospel of Envy – will we make a different choice?

“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy. Its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery”
– Winston Churchill

I have written previously about friends and colleagues who have immigrated from elsewhere to live and work here in the United States, and who also have expressed concerns regarding the frightening direction the current administration is taking our country.

You don’t have to take my word for it anymore. Thomas Peterffy makes the statement in his own words. He came from Hungary, behind the iron curtain, in 1956 and started from scratch to make his own successful career.

Here is a person who has experienced life in a socialist society, had the opportunity to live his adult life in a free market democracy – the United States of America – and is now very concerned that we are heading back to the philosophy of failure and misery that marks socialism. Take the time to watch this and consider his words.

“Freedom is never more than one generation from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”
– Ronald Reagan
