On Tuesday 19th of September, US President Donald Trump gave an important speech outlining American foreign policy priorities. Aside from making it clear that the North Korean dictatorship has very little time left on this earth, he nailed Venezuela and he nailed socialism:
“The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented. From the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela, wherever true socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish and devastation and failure. Those who preach the tenets of these discredited ideologies only contribute to the continued suffering of the people who live under these cruel systems.”
What is most beautiful about this paragraph is that he delivered it to a world body whose number one aim is to spread socialism throughout the world. It wasn’t the call for the complete dismantling of the UN that many of us were hoping for, but it’s a good start.
XYZ Quote of the Day.
