Socialism has repeatedly been condemned by our Popes as contrary to the Catholic faith.
Some people would say, sure Venezuela is a failure but Cuba is a counterexample of what could be -- government healthcare for all, free education, etc. This beautiful, picturesque country showcases socialism done right. At least that is what socialism proponents believe. The truth is significantly different. Socialism has always failed and always will fail with 100% certainty.
It has been noted that you can vote your way into socialism, but at an extremely high cost your children will have to fight their way out. It is a terrible mistake to make. Generations suffer.
@George The Cuban government is a self-marketing genius, perverting the countries poverty into atmosphere.
