How Socialism Ruined My Country



有許多於千禧世代的美國人,似乎被社會主義所吸引 在2016總統初選時,伯尼·桑德斯大量的支持者足以說明 他們在大學校園內批評資本主義 以及穿著切·格瓦拉 t恤去傳達社會主義價值 我了解許多關於社會主義的議題 我住在里約熱內盧,並且是位在巴西境內的一家知名雜誌工作的報刊編輯員 在21世紀初,巴西的經濟快速成長 當地政府制定經濟與貨幣改革,以及剝奪一些國營公司的持有權 藉以提供私營部門喘息空間 通貨膨脹(巴西內的長年慢性問題)急遽地減少 國外的投資者相擁而入,渴望在我們蓬勃發展的經濟下能分一杯羹 在當時,未來看似有指望的 但今日我們的經濟卻是搖擺不定,龐大的失業率與負債,加上握有實權的政治家 因為捲入詐騙與貪污的醜聞,正在被調查中 此事件為巴西的歷史上,最為嚴重 到底這中間發生了什麼事? 在2002年,一位名叫盧拉達席爾瓦的社會主義政治家競選總統 身為一名社會主義者,卻又把自己的風格渲染為另一種現代、新奇的社會主義 然而他成為一名能夠化解國內分岐、團結國民的政治家 他甚至有個""Lulinha paz e amor"的暱稱,意味著"小盧拉的愛與和平" (於葡萄牙文的翻譯) 但是老問題還是存在,即是用以減少不公所要求的所得重新分配議題 大眾媒體、學術界的菁英與名人們向巴西人民保證,藉由把金錢 從富有人群移轉到貧窮人群,貧困人民的生計終將會有所起色 但最終獲利者,仍舊是盧拉以及他政治上勾結的朋友們 此情況在他的繼承人迪爾瑪·魯塞夫的出現後,變得更加嚴重 社會主義者們開始增加政府花費、赤字以及債務 他們稱此為 "促進因素" 社會主義者們提高基本工資與社會計畫的利益 他們稱之為社會正義 社會主義提高薪資與公民服務的退休利益 他們聲稱是投資未來 社會主義者們提供上千個政府與國有企業的工作機會 最為有利於他們的政治合作 然而他們稱之為良好的統治管理 在短期內確實能有些成果 社會主義總是在起初有所成效 但是當政府開銷持續上升,盧拉的社會主義天堂卻開始破滅 伴隨著經濟崩潰 結果從2008到2015年內,政府花費金額幾乎成長了4倍 如同稅收成長率一樣快 在2015年,整體經濟了萎縮3.8%,為近25年最糟的一年 同年,一份世界銀行的調查指出巴西的經濟為全球倒數之一 在189的國家內,我們(巴西)是第16名最難創業的地方,以及第60名 進行財產登記過程最繁瑣的國家,並且為第12名繳稅最複雜的地區 以經濟與道德層面來看,近乎15年以來的社會主義政策已重創巴西 我們也維持著全球前幾名的殺人與搶劫發生率,加上排名幾乎墊底於 工業化國家內的教育與健保 美國人視他們能從出生的下層社會 翻身為中產甚至是上層階級為理所當然 許多巴西人卻始終明白他們不行 但是後來的情況開始有了些轉變 有了些希望的曙光 如今,越來越多的巴西人民視資本主義與有限政府為唯一出路 天佑巴西,盧拉已經因為數個貪腐官司、 犯罪組織的勾結、權力操縱、洗錢案與妨礙司法,而遭到起訴 而魯塞夫在2016被控告偽造政府財政內容、與非法 使用國營銀行的錢去填補政府機關 這項危機促使新政府凍結聯邦的開銷,並且減少政府 在國營企業內的影響,以及鼓勵聯邦的勞動人口辭職 沒人知道這些基本措施能否足以挽回巴西的經濟損失 老實說,此對巴西造成的傷害是極為廣泛的,甚至可能需要耗費幾十年去復原 但即使最終恢復原狀了,也不會是社會主義的功勞 所以美國千禧一代請務必留意了 我是Prager University的費利佩·穆拉巴西 嗨大家好,我是費利佩·穆拉巴西,為一名在巴西的報刊撰稿員和 專欄作家 PragerU 影片已經深深地影響了我本身以及許多的巴西人 如果您也被這些影片所影響了,請考慮 贊助資金給PragerU 您的支持將會確保PragerU的影片能維持免費觀看 與持續的創新 今天也希望您能贊助 來自巴西的掰掰~

  1. Seeing this video, again, but after Bolsonaro's victory os so nice 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
    Bolsonaro 2022 😎🇧🇷🇧🇷🇧🇷

  2. Bernie, it is true socialism always work but only at the beginning until the system the system runs out of money from the rich to give to the poor. Then the free gifts, housing, is empty because there is no food, and people flee the country.

  3. Socialism always works for a while that's the seduction once it gets hold it's hard to get loose no matter how bad things get

  4. Dear Felipe Moura,

    Socialism itself is not the bad thing.
    As you say in the video: The corruption, the money laundering, illegally using money from state-banks and so on. THAT IS THE MAIN PROBLEM, not the socialistic influences.
    I am from the Netherlands and socialistic influences worked reasonable well for decades now. The capitalistic influences we are facing now under European pressure are not only a bless. The

    The big difference between our countries is already in your video:
    In the Netherlands corruption rate is still low, and when I compare the world map of anti-corruption organisations with the wealth indexes, you see immediately what I mean:
    CORRUPTION IS ALWAYS THE OPPOSITE OF NATIONWIDE WEALTH.

    Good luck

    Politician

  5. People never get wised up , the voters always get conned into believing the person that comes along with a speech promising riches for doing nothing , other peoples money ! It is called theft and when the money gets short or runs out disaster strikes just like in Venezuela . You can bet these guys running it have stolen enough money to hide offshore for when they know the game is finally UP !

  6. These folk are all lied to , lies and more lies and brainwashing all the way from the colleges and their Marxist professors .

  7. 4:35 the thing which was at Brasil wasn't socialism you bastards. They were fake and now you're voting to a nazi named Bolsonaro. Stop blaming socialism without knowing what it is.

  8. Funny trivia:

    Alt-right occupies the presidency chair right now.

    – Has links with the mafia;

    – Denies climate change;

    – Allows rainforests to be chopped and burned down;

    – Attacks female and LGBTQ rigths;

    – Persecutes and demoralizes science;

    – Spreads the word of a guru who denies heliocentrism;

    – Cuts workers rights; Cheers oligarchy owners;

    – Allows a record number of licenses for the use of agricultiral chemicals forbidden in Europe and the US;

    – Gives kudos for mass murder of indigenous population;

    – Infiltrates the government with sidelined ex military officers, priests and unaccomplished pseudo-intelctuals with no place in academia.

    Socialism didn't even exist in Brazil. We were many yeats short of what a welfare state would. Heck, banks were and still are the most profitable business in Brazil.

    Alt-right is killing decades of civil rights progress.

    All the new government says is: "here, those are our natural resources, foreign fellows. Please, take it!"

  9. My tax accountant told me that many small businesses in California are closing up because they cannot afford the minimum wage increases currently being enacted. These "Bernie" wages, while intended to help the little guy in society, are actually having the opposite effect. Walmart and McDonalds can absorb this. Mom and pop shops cannot. I hope America never becomes a socialist nation.

  10. Same Things are happening in South Korea under the president Moon!!! Moon raise the minimum wage 15% every year, increase welfare budget and national debt. For social justification, he prosecuted many entrepreneurs. Peoples are easily cheated and deceived by socialist politicians. But they eventually make the country go bankrupt and everybody poor except politicians.

  11. Yeah, Your gonna state that Brazil is one of the hardest places to open up businesses when the state is making its way towards socialism which is the abolishment of private inter prize(business) and don’t you suppose that the reasons why the economy is going down because the people who runs it. You stated that the leaders running the country were corrupt and were messing with the state’s finances

  12. You know stinking shit about real socialism. What you call "socialism" is some nonsensical liberal type of capitalism. Real socialism that we had in Eastern Europe worked, and it worked excellently. Everybody had work, no-one was unemployed, no-one was homeless, we had free medical care, free school for all people. Maybe we didn´t have Mercedeses and expensive villas, but we lived a happy and content life. Cuba, too, would be the happiest country in the world today, were it not for eternal US sanctions, embargoes and what do I know else, by which the US Goliath tries to break the tiny David.
    Bolsonaro won – so what? Does anybody here doubt that Brasil will continue sliding into a still deeper sewer?

  13. This is, unfortunately, the least convincing argument against socialist policy. The lack of specifics concerning policies and their results seems to undermine the overall argument.

  14. its time we arm ourselves with samurai beacause the democrats just took away americans 2nd ammendment right. and its americas time to march into battle and slay the socialist demons that been brooding on the left the way of the warrior divine wind,kamikaze style!

  15. I praise Trump as a Anti-Socialist , I love the GOP Republican Party more than any other organization . The GOP has taken the side of the Poor and the civil rights movement and has always put America first .

  16. Too bad that the useful idiots in the United States don't seem to understand that socialism is really bad.

  17. Everything is fun and games until the white men has nothing more to lose. Result, Death camps for lefties 😕

  18. O problema é q a população acredita em qualquer merda q sai da boca de um cara cm terno.Por isso vamos ser sempre uma colônia de exploração,fato.
