Chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov made headlineswhen he dismissed the Sanders campaign last month.
I’m enjoying the irony of American Sanders supporters lecturing me, a former Soviet citizen, on the glories of Socialism and what it really means! Socialism sounds great in speech soundbites and on Facebook, but please keep it there. In practice, it corrodes not only the economy but the human spirit itself, and the ambition and achievement that made modern capitalism possible and brought billions of people out of poverty. Talking about Socialism is a huge luxury, a luxury that was paid for by the successes of capitalism.
Once again I see another example of those who want “socialism” without knowing how it works and the results. Those who embrace the idea never want to listen to those who have actual experience.
