Decades of socialism damp rot have reduced Europe to an empty, lifeless, godless shell
Socialism is acquired immune deficiency of the soul. Given sufficient time it corrupts and degrades every single thing it touches. It ruins men inside and outside. It is the gift that keeps on giving even after you want it to stop. Like mold it invariably consumes and infects everything before it releases spores that spread to other surrounding countries and cultures. There is no nation so healthy that a little dose of socialism cannot start them on their way to collapse and chaos.
Once people start waiting on the government to do for them what they should be taking the initiative to do for themselves, their whole lives turn into one long agonizing wait for a miracle that never comes.
