Freedom to Succeed

Hungarian billionaire/immigrant, Thomas Peterffy, created the below ad, arguing why Americans should reject socialism.  I think it’s a powerful ad, though perhaps only because I spent eight years in the former Soviet Union and saw just how awful socialism had made things.  What do you think?

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.

    I like it. And freedom to succeed also includes the freedom to fail. Trying to stop the freedom to fail only destroys the freedom to succeed and freedom in general.
