Yup. Socialism underscoring their concern for private property rights. I have 100 pounds of flour and I want to make 50 pounds worth of bread and the other 50 pounds divided up between brownies and croissants. Then, I want to sell them for what the market will bear. My property to dispose of as I wish, right?
Not in Venezuela. No, Sir!
Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro’s socialist government has sent inspectors and soldiers into more than 700 bakeries around the capital this week to enforce a rule that 90 percent of wheat must be destined to loaves rather than more expensive pastries and cakes.
Get the whole story, here.
See, that’s what socialism/progressivism/communism is all about: Equal misery across the board. The government requiring you to provide your own property in the manner and method that they determine for consumption by the masses….all at a loss to you, of course. Kind of like when you own property in the US during a natural or man made disaster and attempt to use market rationing, ie, raising the price so consumers won’t panic buy, and the government prosecutes you for selling your own property at your own price….wonder why that is….hmmm.
