Henry Van Dyke
Socialism is the gradual and less violent form of communism, and socialist is the project of the European Union, which was born in Maastricht in 1992. The intent was to save socialism in Europe after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the predictable bankruptcy of the welfare state in the West as well.

The more people who are dependent on government handouts, the more votes the left can depend on for an ever-expanding welfare state.
Jobs for every American is doomed to failure because of modern automation and production.

I'm talking about welfare for all. Without it, you're going to have warfare for all.
