In Argentina, crime does Pay (no joke, it really does )

Prisoners in Argentina get paid 46% more than the minimum payment received by retirees and pensioners. If you worked your entire life, chances are you’ll end up getting about $3.821,33 in Argentina once you retire. On the other hand, if you’re a murderer or serial rapist, you’ll make $6.060 and you’ll even get covered by the prisoner’s own Union (Workers Deprived of Mobile Freedom). No, none of this is a joke, just the sad reality. The nice part is that prisoners don’t even have to actually work to get paid, just being a prisoner entitles you to this, making becoming a criminal a great career choice for many. This is all part of the Kirchner government plan to incorporate criminals to their movement, with the Kirchner inmate political branch being called “VatayĆ³n Militante” (misspelled Spanish for Militant Batallon). Not making any of this up, just the sad reality of a fully collapsed country.

So now you know. Best country to be a criminal in? Argentina. No doubt whatsoever. There’s about 1% of getting caught and if your crimes are bad enough to land you in jail (just being a thief or burglar isn’t enough, sorry) you’ll have housing, medical and food expenses covered, AND sending back home a salary for your contribution to society.

1) Here in the USA, Social Security and Medicare have a shortfall in long term obligations vs assets that exceeds $40 Trillion. The US government argues that taxes on young workers will sustain the program. However, Pew Research just put out a report showing that a huge percentage of young people 18-34 are still living with their parents and are either unemployed or receiving low wages.

2) A major political conflict between old baby boomers demanding money that isn't there and young workers trying to establish an independent home and support a family is looming. And the dilemma of a Democratic Party that has lied to both is becoming more obvious.

Maybe Trump or independent Bernie Sanders will form a new third party. Unfortunately, if such a party did get off the ground, the opportunistic , psychopathic, political prostitutes would just jump ship to it.

This is reprehensible. Hopefully this doesn't happen in the US but we are on the same path unfortunately.

Mind boggling. So, when does Argentina hit 'rock bottom', Ferfal? What will it take to put an end to this 25 years of madness?

This is a plain application of the "socially close" (sorry for the raw trranslation from french)) marxist theory.

Basically the criminals help the state, by reinforcing its legitimacy for weaponless citizens. Since social-democracies thend to cushion (very badly but that's another topic) hardships in life, and being victim of a crime is a hardship, high crime rate makes people more desiring of a larger state.

Not to mention that in an oligarchic socialist state, the police has higher priorities (such as collecting taxes and defending the state against the citizens) and that welfare for criminals is a cost efficient way of dealing with criminality for the government, while letting tke cops available for their primary mission (the ones I mentioned, not the official ones).

Once again, socialism at work !
