Fleeing the Socialist Paradise By James Reed
The Left in the West are going through a rebirth period, reviving classical Marxism. I am working away on my lap top at my old university here in dusty old Melbourne, and outside this room posters about Karl Marx are everywhere. Who financed that, George? And, what would old Karl have thought about gender fluidity? Anyway, that is the world in the day care centre of the university. In the real world, socialist places like Venezuela have a much grimmer outlook:
“The democratic socialist nation of Venezuela’s collapse is showing just how far people will go in order to escape the horrors of big government. In fact, the situation in Venezuela has gotten so bad that women are willing to risk being sexually abused in human trafficking rings in order to escape the horrors of socialism. Unfortunately, the harsh reality of government is bearing down on real people and making life incredibly miserable for those stuck in Venezuela. It’s also no walk in the park for those who have managed to escape. The Washington Post detailed one woman’s plight, and it’s a disturbing an harrowing tale:
In Trinidad, the International Organization for Migration, a United Nations body, has received 23 suspected cases of trafficked Venezuelans in the past three months — compared with no Venezuelan cases last year, according to Jewel Ali, the organization’s local director. They include victims like Luz — who said she lost one of her three children in April after the hospital in her Venezuelan town ran out of medication to treat her daughter’s bacterial infection. When she was approached to come to Trinidad, the offer seemed too good to be true. “But I told myself, I’m going anyway. I’m not going to lose the chance for my kids to be better off just because I had some doubts,” she said. The ordeal — five weeks spent captive and repeatedly filmed being raped — had “damaged” her, she said. At one point, Luz said, she and a friend were tied up and raped side by side.
“We were looking at each other,” Luz said, tearing up. “We would cry. And I would tell her, ‘Sister, be strong, you have a daughter.’ I would just keep repeating that.” –The Washington Post. As the oil-rich country buckles under the weight of a failed socialist experiment, an estimated 5,000 people a day are departing the country in Latin America’s largest migrant outflow in decades. Millions have fled Maduro’s reign of terror creating an even bigger crisis. Carolina Jimenez, a senior official with Amnesty International, said, “Venezuela’s unprecedented situation has turned a domestic human rights crisis into a regional human rights crisis. Countries in the region are not prepared to take in so many migrants and do not have the asylum systems needed to prevent job exploitation and human trafficking,” she said. “These people should be protected, but instead they are being taken advantage of.”
I don’t blame the refugees for wanting to get out, and maybe the West could help them, if the migration program was concerned with helping genuine refugees, like these women, and the Whites subject to genocide in South Africa. But, they are politically incorrect according to the Left, so they must, sadly, meet their destiny, as we all will.
