Self Determination

Socialism, per William Bradford and the pilgrim’s experience, does not have any notion or concept of self-determination. This is one of the primary reasons that all experiments with socialism eventually fail.

Without self determination, there is no incentive to improve one’s self. It takes all passion out of work, out of productivity, out of life. If a person is engaged in a job that doesn’t interest them, they’re usually doing the job just to sustain life. They will do the bare minimum, they will not expand or grow their skills. They will become stagnate. What a horrible waste.

A stagnate population cannot support itself. Eventually all the “have-nots” consume all the wealth stored by the “haves” because the alternative for “have-nots” is death.
