Professor rejects Marxism after traveling the globe: ‘Socialism doesn’t work’

University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Professor Jack Stauder says his political and ideological conversion away from socialism and Marxism occurred when he actually witnessed these systems in action.

After traveling to more than 110 countries to pursue various forms of research, notably cultural anthropology, Stauder described his conversion from Marxism as a process of disillusionment.

  • Brace yourselves for the irony to break out. This dolt, who was, no doubt, considered a great mind while he was blindly teaching his young students to loose their ability to see reality as it is, will now be shunned and excoriated by his former students and colleagues for opening his own eyes.

      His career is over.

        One word, Tenure. But he’s lost all future funding for any other endeavors he wishes to pursue.

          No, no, no – he’s still has opportunity. He just needs to phrase it in the right way; “Although I have so far discovered no country that could be used as the archetype of an idealised Socialist country, I am investigating many other smaller countries for one or more that may prove to be the model for such an ideal Socialist system that might be able to be applied to our country.”

          He just needs to bait his hook, and he could string out the search for the perfect Socialist state forever. After all, as long as you put the right argument forward, you could be funded to search for a unicorn and never have to quit because you finally discovered it.

    I guess he couldn’t figure that out just from reading books. He isn’t that bright for a professor. He basically came up with the idea that water is wet.

  • Did he not get that idea from the experiences in eastern Europe?

    For a professor he a very, very slow learner. It took him until what age exactly to figure this out?

    • Clausewitz

      I figured this out at about the age of twelve after talking to my Grand dad’s war buddies. I guess I was a child prodigy.

    A real bright boy this one…somebody told him dog shit is disgusting to the taste but he had to spend 30 years and travel to 30 socialist Utopias tasting commie dog shit before he believed it….
    Yes siree….a real bright boy……..give that man a plaque.

    Actually it sounds like one of them deathbed admissions that he was the child molester the police could never catch in his hometown……I was wrong then but I’ve finally learned right from wrong he cries…

    I would have spotted this schmuck after 10 minutes in the lifeboat of life and he would have been the first over the side.

      I’ll give him some credit for the following:
      1) Discovering that there are no Socialist governments that work as they are supposed to,
      2) Making a public statement to that effect.

      Think of the millions of people that believed in the ideal of a just and fair Socialist state as young people, and eventually died as old men and women still believing it was possible, and still trying to change our society to this ideal socialist state.

      Think of all those thousands of socialists that some way through their lives discovered that there is no such thing, but kept quiet to avoid the distain, disapproval, and ostracism of their friends.

    As usual reality trumps Marxist delusions.
