White Paper- MysteryLimbo

1a: Harsh imprisonment and the mistreatment of minorities groups is resulting in socialism in the United States. The United States throughout history misrepresented minorities group through the Justice system and within their democracy. With these tendencies still occurring in small numbers, it is forcing Americans to turn away from liberty and to socialism, within recent years over 28% of Americans identified as socialist and it is no coincidence that is number has been steadily increasing since 2016. It could be possible that capitalism is at stake and this could be catastrophic for the United States economy and ultimately the people in our country.

1b: The rise of socialism could result in a lot more problems than what leftist extremist believe. A very modern day example of this would be the tragedy that occurred in Venezuela and left the country in ruins. “The first democratically elected president was Rómulo Betancourt founded the Communist Party in Costa Rica and helped found the Communist Party in Colombia. As president, he started destroying the economic institutions we had by implementing price controls, rent controls, and other regulations we hadn’t had before. On top of that, he and his allies created a new constitution that was hostile to private property.” All of this corruption haunts Venezuela to today and their inflation is the highest the world has seen in years.

4. The current state of my research paper I would say needs a lot more work in areas. The area that us improvements are my sources because although they are good sources I believe I can find better ones. The other things are providing enough evidence on the topic I chose because these topics are fairly upcoming and might lack some of the necessary data.

    Limbo, this is bold and utterly fascinating AND I’m completely perplexed by your hypothesis. Do not dismay. I am on your side. I’m just confused. The connection, if there is one, between harsh prison sentences and socialism completely escapes me. I will need your guidance here.

    This text in particular mystifies me:

    forcing Americans to turn away from liberty and to socialism, within recent years over 28% of Americans identified as socialist and it is no coincidence that is number has been steadily increasing since 2016

    I want to know what it means, and I’m counting on you to tell me. Thank you for forcing my attention on a very ambitious hypothesis. I hope you’ll let me collaborate. Whatever these claims mean I am eager to learn.

    The tragedy of Venezuela is undeniable. That the tragedy is the fault of socialism is not as clear. Corruption, yes. MAYBE socialism as a political system leads inevitably to corruption. If so, that’s a argument WAY too big for 3000 words. But again, I’m mostly intrigued with your suggestions and don’t need to argue. I’m more interested in giving your ideas a thorough hearing. So get to it, now that you’ve picked a topic. Start Purposefully Summarizing those sources so we have something more specific to discuss.

    Responding to my Feedback is always a good idea. So is asking for more at any time.
