The socialist state of Venezuela is in its final death throes, and one commentator wants the world to know that things didn’t have to end this way.

But this is how they always end when political Leftists who love big government are at the helm. And it’s exactly what was foretold in the famous 1957 Ayn Rand novel, Atlas Shrugged.

In case you’ve never read it, Atlas Shrugged tells the story of what happens when hardworking, talented citizens are robbed of the fruits of their labor by government thugs who redistribute it to others in the name of “equality.” Such a scenario is more popularly known as socialism – or in its worst iteration, total communism.

It all starts with heavy regulations that make it difficult for people to do business. The government grows larger as the private sector shrinks, and those who once owned successful businesses are forced to cease or flee for greener pastures.

This is exactly what’s currently taking place in Venezuela, where, despite having rich oil reserves and other natural resources, the general populace is being denied access to its bounty. As a result, those who otherwise would have contributed to a thriving Venezuelan economy were it a free market, are leaving the country in droves, plunging the nation into total poverty and chaos.

“Reports are now surfacing that there is an outflow of teachers, doctors, engineers, oil workers, bus drivers, and electricians,” writes Marina Medvin for, citing information she gathered from an article published by The Washington Post.

“The brightest Venezuelans are disappearing. Venezuelans shrugged,” she adds, citing the exact scenario as predicted more than half a century ago in Atlas Shrugged.

That socialism ALWAYS ends in failure isn’t rocket science – it’s common sense
