Before Congress and the American voting public start mindlessly enacting and supporting socialistic legislation as a solution to social problems they must first be mindful of its dangerous consequences. These have to do with the existence and the operation of the emotional plague of mankind. Why is this so? Because the plague operates by being attracted to and concentrated around centers of power. Socialism operates by transferring and concentrating money and power from individuals and local centers of power to the State. The greater the power concentrated in the State the greater will it be in the hands of emotional plague individuals masquerading as well-intentioned progressives telling the public what they are free to do and not do. People’s blindness to the plague is the reason that there can be no real solution to social problems and why social conditions will continue to worsen until people come to grips with the emotional plague of mankind.
