July 26, 2017

Expand your horizons

The Michael Curtis letter (TGI, July 24) titled “Socialism is a bad idea,” was based on what? A quote from Thomas Sowell? Or possibly the unmentioned Venezuela? That’s a narrow view if these are the only considerations.

I wonder what the Democratic Socialist countries of Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Sweden, Norway, New Zealand, Belgium, Ireland and Australia would think about that statement. Perhaps Mr. Curtis could expand his horizons and find out.
