Socialist Countries From Ruining Their Economy

Many nations in a state of disrepair and challenged with being overrun by the society? Why is it that some leaders try to rule with an iron fist or through a socialist motif only to find that all of the citizens they've been busy giving to are busy trying to overthrow them? Well, some say it's because; familiarity breeds contempt. Yes, this is totally true, but it's only part of the problem really. What happens is leaders promise the people things that they can't give them, and then they try, but when they have exhausted all their resources the citizens demand what they were promised and more.

Maybe we should talk a little bit about Latin America, and all of the challenges there. We've already seen the problems in Europe with those nations identified as the PIIGS - Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece, and Spain. We've also seen what had happened in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, and who knows what nation will fall during the next Arab Spring type riots. Now then, in Latin America Hugo Chavez has died, and Venezuela's economy is in shambles. Not only that, but there is social disarray, crime, and well, one could say that things are working all that well.

There was a very interesting article in The Journal of International Affairs, spring/summer 2013 addition, volume 66, Number two. The research piece was titled "The Transformation of Security in Latin America: a Cause for Common Action," by Gabriel Marcella. In this research piece the author notes that 42% of all the murders in the world happen in Latin America, but they only have 8% of the world's population.

Wow, those are scary statistics, care to dive into this information a little further, or discuss the root cause? I believe the cause of this is the dumping down of populations and the reliance of these populations on the government for all of their needs as the socialist nations collapse under their own weight, mostly due to all the promises they have made. Many times the US sends aid, assistance, military help, makes special trade deals, and offers quite a bit to socialist nations and their leaders. I believe this to be a mistake.

By propping up these regimes, we are prolonging their reign and helping them further blow up their bubble until it collapses, so doesn't that make us culpable, especially when we know our history of how socialist nations rise and fall? Don't you think the citizens of those nations are watching and will eventually realize that the US had supported those leaders, the ones who lied to them and eventually collapsed their economies, standard of living, currency, and brought on crime and social breakdown.
