Argentine President Milei denounces socialism as a model that generates poverty, stagnation and misery

Duh! President Milei’s inauguration speech pointed out obvious truths to Argentines and all Latrine Americans. Deeply buried under the avalanche of disasters caused by decades of socialsim, Argentina will be hard to fix. Some might say it’s impossible. But starting the effort with an exposition of the truth is a very good step in the right direction. Unfortunately, many Argentines and other Latrine Americans will still refuse to accept the truth. So, prepare for Milei to receive nothing but abuse from the world’s news media.

Libertarian economist Javier Milei, who this Sunday assumed the presidency of Argentina in a ceremony held on the esplanade of the National Congress, questioned socialism in his inauguration speech and stated that it is a “model that has failed throughout the world.”

“Our leadership decided to abandon the model that had made us rich and embraced the impoverishing ideas of collectivism,” Milei said before a crowded crowd that went to celebrate the arrival of the former deputy to the Casa Rosada.

“For more than a hundred years, politicians have insisted on defending a model that only generates poverty, stagnation and misery. A model that considers that citizens are there to serve politics and not that politics exists to serve citizens,” Milei argued in a fiery speech that had a greater focus on economics.

In the presence of leaders from several countries and official delegations that accompanied the inauguration ceremony, the member of the La Libertad Avanza party asserted that this model “considers that the task of a politician is to direct the lives of individuals in all areas and spheres.” possible. A model that considers the State as a spoil of war that must be distributed among friends.”

“That model has failed, it has failed all over the world, but it has especially failed in our country,” said the president.

In his message to the Argentine nation, Milei strongly charged, without mentioning names, against predecessor governments, such as that of Néstor Kirchner and Cristina Fernández, as well as that of his predecessor Alberto Fernández. His words also served as an omen for the international policy that his administration will have, after he also did not invite leaders of dictatorial governments such as Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua and Iran.

“Just as the fall of the Berlin Wall marked the end of a tragic era for the world, these elections have marked the turning point of our history,” said the right-wing politician, who has moderated some of his most high-sounding positions made in campaign, although he kept intact the ideas of reducing ministries from 18 to nine and the privatization of some public companies.

  1. He was wise to warn up front that things will get worse before they get better, and to emphasize how fucked up Argentina has been for ages, but the usual suspects will cut him no slack and will attack him at every opportunity. He seems more capable than Bolsonaro, but leftists don’t want him to succeed, because what they want is to get back into power, regardless of what would be best for Argentina or the region.

  2. Gee, I wonder how “His Holiness” will receive Milei at the Vatican–assuming Milei bothers. If I were he, if Bergoglio does or says anything offensive, I’d snub the Vatican as beside the point.
