It's sad that the video ends with some kind of happy tone. In Tanzania, where prior to independence, it could feed itself and export to the world. Under Nyerere, post-independence, famine ravaged the country under the guise of social planning. Many of those peasants settled under Operation Dodoma in 1973 (Unjamaa farm system) where forcebly done so, and forced to sacrifice all their produce to the government at below value prices, in 1974 and 1975 agricultural productivity plumeted, and just two years into the experiment, Tanzania had to import food to feed its people. There were no droughts, no failed rainfall. It was incompetant leadership mixed with a truly immoral economic system. Foreign ecchange reserves were also quite substantial pre-indepenance, with $400m USD in the exchange, 5 years later, Tanzania had a foreign debt of $1b USD. Many of the coutries leaders because wealthy by ravaging the economy, the people are the ones who suffered under thos grand experiment which also failed in Ghana, Zaire (now the Congo), and many other countries.
State planning is wrong. Without free markets, there can be no prosperity. They're wrong.
Chuck Norris made the Kessel run in less than three parsecs.
Socialism is bullshit.
Socialism is simply greed and slave morality
Why isn't the People's Republic of China marked on the map? Chairman Mao Tse-tung was one of the greatest leaders of the Third World. Another one was Thomas Sankara of Burkina Faso, who was inspired by Chairman Mao.
Long live socialism!
He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself is enlightened.
As Max Romeo said - SOCIALISM IS LOVE BETWEEN MAN AND MAN !!!
Socialist dominate systems don't work. You need a mixed economy that combines capitalism and socialism to some degree. Both the gov't and private sectors can handle certain things better than others. The U.S even has a mixed economy. The U.S Gov't handles public schools,postal,medicare and fire and police departments but most U.S business is in the hands of the private sector.
