The Red Sun is Setting for the International Left

The collapse of the international left has become so obvious that even the New York Times can’t ignore it. A recent headline noted the pro-business tidal wave sweeping South America, where each of the ABC countries—Argentina, Brazil and now Chile—recently rejected socialist parties that once dominated their politics.

Meanwhile, the Times turned heart-breaking attention on the starvation and destitution afflicting oil-rich Venezuela, following insane Marxist experiments by populist demagogue Hugo Chavez and his inept successor, Nicholas Maduro.

Around the world, leftists are becoming increasingly irrelevant—in Germany, France and the Netherlands, Socialists had their worst showings since World War II and Italy and Spain are shifting in the same direction. In Israel, the left-center Labor Party hasn’t held power for 17 years and won less than 20 percent of the vote two years ago.

It’s not just the United States where business bashing and big bureaucracies have begun to go out of style.

    Hopefully, Ty gets the memo!

      I got one memo loud and clear, there is one policy that NONE of the european countries that have enacted it already want to switch away from. Universal healthcare models. No one is trying to mirror US conservatives dreams of a market free for all.

      So continue to cheer the spread of some slightly less left wing people in Latin America, that will not stop the policy movement to switch the US healthcare system. It will come, my only wish is that it happens soon enough for all of you to see it in your lifetimes.

        Ty

        I don't understand… why doesn't the leftist Utopia, known as The People's Republic of California, have Universal Healthcare for its citizens?
        If Universal Healthcare is such a great thing, why don't you leftists have it? Why aren't you leftists offering it? Where is it Ty? I don't see it.
        You can show the rest of us just how great it is, and how well it works. LOL!

    The U.S. government's total revenue is estimated to be $3.654 trillion for fiscal year 2018. That's the most recent forecast from the Office of Management and Budget for October 1, 2017 through September 30, 2018. (Source: "FY2018 Budget. Table S-4," Office of Management and Budget, May 23, 2018.)

    How much more Ty? When will we have purchased Utopia?
    The government steals our souls and delivers us Utopia in return, is that the deal?

    Ty, these nations are trying to do something a little more basic than Healthcare: survive. Entitlements were used to entice people to socialism; a system that is evil because it promises an utopia it cannot produce. If having universal healthcare the be all and end all, you have already lost.

    Good read, thanks for positive prognosis.

    Here you go Ty, and all you soulless leftists. Have fun living with yourselves!
