Karl Marx said the essence of fairness and equality is his classless society, the same social and economic policies the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party candidates said we should put into full affect because they will bring fairness and prosperity to the United States as we heard last night in the “I can spend more than you can” irresponsible so called debate last night, is “from each according to his abilities to each according to his needs.” Take from the producer and give to the taker has always been a formula that brings financial and social collapse to any society that employs this ridiculous concept.
Those who advocate for this “socially just” and “fair” idea, can not give even one example of where this concept has produced an economically and socially strong society. Having not one example that substantiates their claims, these collectivists (Marxists, communists, socialists, progressives, Democrats – all virtually the same) resort to the concept that those who practiced this failed ideal in the past did not do it the right way. We are told now that if we call this movement Democratic Socialism it will bring about a fair and just classless society that will prosper. The same formula failed when it was called Menshevik Socialism, Bolshevik Socialism, National Socialism, or any other modifier placed before the failed formula of Socialism.
It cannot succeed for two reasons: the first is it promotes destruction that is contrary to human nature, and two, the arithmetic brings about negative numbers that prohibit growth, innovation, entrepreneurship, and prosperity. Marx, for all his faults, understood the math and embraced the math stating that economic growth should never exceed the growth of the population because the excess would lead to innovation, growth, and prosperity which once again brings about an unfair, an unjust, and an unequal society.
An example of how this concentration on so called fairness and equality is in the short run and long run detrimental and destructive to the financial and social well being is the claim by the Women’s National Soccer Team that they should be paid the same as the men. The Women have been more successful from a competitive standpoint than the men given the success of the Women in the World Cup competition. Nevertheless, the women are advocating that the failed formula of Marx should apply; “from each according to their ability to each according to their need.” Both Marx and the advocates for this socialist formula forget that 1 + 1 = 2 no matter what modifier we place in front of the formula.
This is what the numbers reveal for the Soccer association:
"From 2009 through 2019—a timeframe that includes two Women's World Cup championships—the Women's National Team has earned gross revenue of $101.3 million over 238 games, for an average of $425,446 per game and the Men's National Team has earned gross revenue of $185.7 million over 191 games, for an average of $972,147 per game. More specifically, WNT games have generated a net profit (ticket revenues minus event expenses) in only two years (2016 and 2017). Across the entire 11-year period, WNT games generated a net loss of $27.5 million."
What the Marx’s advocates are saying is that they deserve more even though by paying them more the loss would be even larger. This is what the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party, and many in the Republican establishment like Ryan and McCarthy, have been claiming, the larger the deficit the more “socially just” and “fair” is society.
The problem with this is that history shows this to be a failed formula. What this formula produces is more and more poverty, a lower and lower living standard for all but the politically elite, more and more crime, and less and less hope. The formula is designed to destroy and not to build. The Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) argument, as we heard last night, is to destroy and not to build. Marx said the current society must be completely destroyed so this never to be achieved classless society that is “socially just’” “totally conforming,” and “totally equal” can be built.
