How long did the USSR last? Socialism is a matter of time… the outcome is however always the same. Europe will fail soon enough. One of the things that many fail to understand is europe is heavily subsidized by the US. The US spends billions on the UN, NATO, US army…. all of europe put together barely comes to half the spending that the US does. If you remove the UK out of the picture europe can basically only defend itself. It has no navy. Barely any ground forces. Short of a massive draft combined with human wave attacks europe is helpless. Europe is also heavily reducing its armed forces to meet its socialist budgets. We also directly pay money into the EU by renting army bases which are used to protect it.
Next look at any research… the US doesn’t between 30-80% of all research in every field. Then add in US companies fund huges amounts of research across the world… Without this research socialist health care would still be stuck in the 60s… much like the way the USSR was decades behind the US. Most of the drugs that hit the markets are invented in the US.
Europe has been able to build and flourish because of the huge sums of US tax dollars to this day that flown into it. They know that the US will protect them no matter how low they cut their army budgets… In the end the US is holding the world both together and at peace… and the strain is showing. If WW3 were to break out with russia and china attacking the US… but offering peace deals with the EU… other then the UK who do you think would side with the US? Most EU countries would happily sit it out. Other then the UK its doubtful many would lift and finger… and of those(like poland) who couldn’t do anything even if they wanted to.
Like all socialist ideas they purposely leave out out the whole picture. This is the biggest problem…socialists only look at the picture of what they choose to see not what the world is really like, because of this it can never hold the fantasy together and sooner(rarely later) it will fail. Socialism can never work in a vacuum.
