There is a tool that will be found in almost every mechanic’s tool box called a ratchet. It is an especially useful tool in that it can save a lot of time. It can be set to tighten or loosen nuts and bolts in such a way that the operator can twist it both ways and it only goes one way. Hence, it can tighten or loosen things without continually being repositioned.
Of course, I likely don’t need to tell you this. Most people are already well aware of it. The point is that when it is set for tightening, they cannot be used for loosening and vice-versa.
The thing is that socialism is like a ratchet that is set for tightening. It is only used for tightening control over a populace, not for loosening.
If history teaches us one thing it teaches us that communism is very reluctant to loosen its hold on a people. It was not until the Soviet Union went bankrupt that it folded. And, by the way, the same maniacal outfit is still in control of Russia, only under another name. Fortunately, they were forced to let go of all their satellite countries.
China, to this day is ruled by people who call themselves communists, though they are actually selfish tyrants who rule with an iron fist. If it were true communism, everyone would have equal food, shelter and clothing. In China, as they say, some are more equal than others.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I don’t see anything on the distant horizon for anything improving. It only gets worse year after year and they are trying to force their form of government on all. If they can, they will force their ways on the US. They are doing what they can right now. Their goal is one world government.
If they succeed, it will be like the ratchet. It will be one way. No one, no earthly power will ever change it. The communist ratchet only works one way. Once it ratchets down, it never ratchets back up.
