The failures of socialism are so complete, so overwhelming, so simple to understand, I almost have a hard time when pressed to argue against it. If someone tells you a square has three sides, how do you argue against that? The mere fact that they would make that assertion shows that observation/logic/reason wont be of any use in a counterargument.
