You, again?

Alchemy, Phrenology and Spontaneous Generation were all pseudo-sciences that enjoyed their proverbial 15 minutes of fame and then were rightly discarded because... well, because they were all bogus - they didn't work.

So, why is it that socialism keeps getting a pass? Why is it that socialism has not yet been assigned its appropriate spot on the ash heap of history? There are those that say that perhaps what is happening in Europe right now and its unfolding-as-we-speak consequences are the last nail in the coffin of socialism/collectivism. We're all for that sentiment as boys can dream but the lure of easy money, and more appropriately, the lure of someone elses money is a temptation too great for man to resist.

KOOK, guest blogging at Left Coast Rebel has more, here.

Dean,
How true and how sad. Coincidentally, I posted on the same topic this evening.

Because socialism makes sense. Doesn't work, but the theory is so simple and perfect and nice....
