Socialist nations are all too familiar with famines, shortages, and humanitarian crises. Every place that has adopted socialism has been tormented by the consequences of this lethal economic philosophy. Venezuela was a Latin American paradise until it went full socialist. Zimbabwe was the breadbasket of Africa until a crazed Marxist took over the country. Cuba is facing another food crisis comparable to the Special Period in the 1990s. Communist China is reportedly on the cusp of another famine. Why does socialism always lead to starvation everywhere it is installed?
