The Morning Rant

"You all know about what's called 'the tragedy of the commons', right? That's when there's some sort of resource, such as grazing land, that nobody owns but everybody can use. And it works OK until the number of grazing animals can no longer be sustained. Then, if usage remains unchecked, the resource eventually becomes exhausted. So, how is this problem solved? The best, most efficient solution is to simply privatize the grazing land, for example, sub-divide it and sell the lots at auction. But rat-bastard commies, socialists, and other economic nitwits hate private property, so they want the labor to be done collectively and cooperatively, and the more socialism is doped with anarchy, the more this must be done voluntarily. In other words, they think you should just tell people not to overgraze the common pasture and that should be enough to avoid the tragedy. But what about those who don't want to volunteer to cooperate? They must be taught to cooperate for the common good. And what happens to the recalcitrants who don't agree? The commies won't answer the question, at least not those commies who are running for office. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will start babbling nonsense, but the real answer is, as Lenin admitted, that that's when the killings will start. In order for communism to work, pretty much everyone has to be 'woke', and there's not much room for dissent. And when they run out of recalcitrants ('wreckers') to shoot, they'll start shooting each other for being insufficiently 'woke'. And as Ocasio-Cortez gets hauled up before the firing squad, she'll be yelling 'but this isn't real communism.'"
