Why is socialism a failed, tyrannical form of government? Ben Shapiro explains in less than two minutes

In less than two minutes, Ben Shapiro from the Daily Wire, explains why socialism is a failed, tyrannical form of government.

Capitalism is good because capitalism is freedom. Socialism is bad because socialism is tyranny… The statement of socialism is that your labor is owned to the society. The notion of socialism is that you do not own your own freedom, you do not own your own time, you do not own your own labor, you do not own your own work, you do not own the products of your own work.

The basic notion of capitalism is that you own all of those things and now you have to engage in free exchange with someone else who does not owe you anything. If you want to thrive, if you want to succeed, you’re going to have to make something somebody else wants.

People think capitalism is selfishness. No, socialism is selfishness. The notion that I have to, some how, supply you the money so you can sit in your basement and paint with watercolors. Socialism – the idea that I’m supposed to fulfill all of your dreams by paying you for something I don’t want and have no need for.
