The Irreversibility of the Errors of the Left
By Luis F. Brizuela Cruz
Personal and societal errors are an essential part of the formidable human composition. They occur as a direct consequence of circumstances that have been hatching since the beginning of time –since the first being romped across the first dawn of life. The web we have woven since then has rendered its toll of what we today define as “cause and effect”. As our world has evolved, the complexity of such web has reached dimensions and proportions that have exceeded the boundaries of our human understanding, therefore submitting us, perpetually, to a regimen of self-correction where the most successful systems are the ones where the members minimize the errors and their consequences within a framework of piety and justice.
Modern cosmological philosophies have allowed us to define, at least in ample scales, two institutions with vast ramifications that essentially run our planet. Our perception of the sociological world in which we belong is fundamentally divided into two contrasting theories: Capitalism and Socialism, commonly known as Right and Left.
Capitalism, or right vision, has been decisively proven to be the theory which best adheres to the imperfect nature of the human being. At times voracious and unmerciful -as the nature of man can be- Capitalism places in the hands of the citizens the opportunity to create and preserve. It does require, however, constant monitoring, making it the absolute responsibility of the world’s governments to control its appetite and the inequality that can result from man’s zealous and intrinsic desire to improve himself materially, sometimes at the expense of his peers. History has shown that every time that Capitalism has turned disproportionate and unfair, it has led to seismic sociological movements known as uprisings and revolutions, in some instances returning balance and justice to the given society. These manifestations of grievance on the part of the masses, however, do not always result in long-term betterment for society as a whole, as many turn detrimental and can even lead to the longing for the deposed Capitalism. One thing that has been confirmed is that Capitalism always produces abundance and well-being, although not always accessible to all members of the given society.
Socialism, or left vision, on the other hand, arrives always full of noble intentions (at least in theory) to make fair distribution of the wealth of the land and entrusts the State with the administration of riches. The State not just consumes and often wastes the capital created by the previous system, but also limits the capacity of renovation and replenishment of the social coffers, which is only attainable and sustainable by the leadership of the private sector. Eventually, Socialism drives the society that it was trying to rescue to chaos and misery. The rhetorical socialist predication of equality and its persistence in limiting the normal aspirations of man –phobic of seeing some individuals with greater desire and talent run ahead in life’s race- frequently truncates the spirit of progress and obstructs the creation of any social and material wellbeing. A sustained state of Socialism can easily mutate toward its destructive and inconsolable communist phase, which constitutes a very critical step of often irreversible characteristics.
All the attempts made during the Twentieth Century demonstrated, without exceptions, that the transition from Capitalism to Socialism sank various societies into a limbo of insecurity, material scarcity and subsequent breakdown of moral values; as the motivation and desire to prosper vanished from the afflicted population. The errors of the wild and at times voracious Capitalism can find some kind of correction if society is capable of intelligently shifting to a controlled and fair vision of creation, preservation and distribution of its capital. Systems with governmental balance of powers and well aware and informed demographics are the best candidates to carry out this type of improvement. Therefore, it is quite reasonable to conclude that there is always hope to correct the errors of Capitalism. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about the misdeeds of Socialism and even less if it undergoes a metamorphosis toward the communist abomination, which always ends up stripping man of his last personal and societal rights, in favor of the false proclamation of the rights and equality for the apathetic and subjugated masses.
Doomed is the nation that succumbs, victimized by the irreversibility of the errors of the left.
Sanders, a self-proclaimed socialist, could replace Obama, a camouflaged socialist, as President of the United States.
