The Selfishness of Socialism

The Selfishness of Socialism

“There is a pervasive assumption in our society, Dennis Prager states, that capitalism is “based on selfishness, and produces selfishness, while socialism is based on selflessness and produces selflessness.”

Of course, as Prager goes on to say, the reality is quite the opposite. “Capitalism teaches people to work more. Socialism teaches people to demand more.” In fact, socialism has a crippling effect on the community: it infantilises people, making them dependent and self-centred.”
