Tucker Carlson: If Democratic Socialism Works, Why Doesn’t Venezuela Have Toilet Paper? By John Sexton July 7, 2018 Tucker Carlson devoted a segment of his show last night to discussing Democratic Socialism with Professor Cornel West. After outlining some of the policy prescriptions advocated by Democratic Socialists—”state ownership of major industries,” reparations for black Americans, abolishing ICE, etc—Carlson asked Cornel West for an example of where such a program has worked. “Can you point to an example, an extant example, of it that works? Venezuela seems like an example of Democratic Socialism. Would you say that it is and if so does it work?” Carlson asked. “No, I don’t think that Democratic Socialism as an ideal has been able to be embodied in a larger social context.” ~Snip~ Democratic Socialism eliminates that competition and consolidates the power in one place. If you put all the eggs in one basket, someone powerful and ruthless will come along and take the basket. And then they’ll use that consolidated power to stay there for as long as they can. That’s not a risk worth taking and Venezuela is a perfect example of what can happen when you do.

It will be the end of the USA and indeed the western world as we know it. They are preaching pure communism under a different banner. Tucker doesn’t seem to have a killer instinct. Why didn't he ask West, “how come the citizens are killing and eating zoo animals to survive and how come people have no jobs?” The DSA uses tools like Cornel West and the blind uniformed masses of non-thinking followers, to believe that Socialism is a Utopia and each time it fails the process costs millions of lives and untold suffering. They've created their own religions. They comes in many forms beginning with Socialism, Communism, Social Justice, and Political Correctness are some examples. The only thing that matters in these religions is blind devotion to "The Cause"..
