Wherever its tried it fails.
Wherever it continues to exist, it does so on the back of the free market system and the taxpayers who are forced to into a perpetual indentured servitude.
No electricity, no antibiotics, no beds, no soap: Devastating look inside Venezuela’s crisis-hit hospitals where seven babies die every day, patients litter the floor and doctors operate without tools
The impact of Venezuela’s economic collapse on its people is almost impossible to put into words. But these images inside calamity-hit hospitals go some way to communicating the devastation. Since oil prices plummeted, all aspects of everyday life – electricity, food, paper – have been rationed. Critically, medical centers are in crisis. Without soap, antibiotics, power, gloves and x-rays, surgeons are struggling to keep patients alive.
Photographs taken by New York Times photographer Meridith Kohut offer a glimpse inside some of the most notorious centers – while President Nicolas Maduro claims the socialist nation as the best healthcare in the world. The Luis Razetti Hospital (pictured) in the portal city of Barcelona looks like a war zone. Patients can be seen balancing themselves on half-broken beds with days-old blood dried up on their bodies. They’re the lucky ones; most are curled up on the floor, blood streaming, limbs blackening. Children lie among dirty cardboard boxes in the hallways without food, water or medication.
NOTE: Societies would have much much more than they could ever imagine, if they reverted back to smaller government and a wide open free market economy. Any resulting ”injustice” would pale in comparison to what the government statist has done to society.
