(Wall Street Journal) – As soon as the announcement came that Tim Tebow was moving to the New York Jets, leaders at Christian City Church Manhattan began brainstorming about how to deliver an invitation to the NFL’s most outspoken Christian.

The Swedish Experiment – the “do’s and don’ts”

Peanut Gallery: I begin with the premise that “socialism” is contrary to human nature and is inevitably doomed to failure.

It fails because some people work hard and others don’t. The “do’s” eventually create better a lifestyle for themselves and begin to resent the “don’ts” or, vice versa, as in this article. Either way, socialists finally “run out of other people’s money” (Margaret Thatcher) and the system fails.

It can fail from the top down, when the “do’s” start running out of money and feel the pain, or from the bottom up when the “don’ts” refuse to take any responsibility for themselves and take to the streets to demand their “fair share” (think Greece).

This article on The Swedish Utopian Experiment makes my point.
