Earlier this year, fried chicken chain Popeyes rolled out a new fried chicken sandwich. The sandwich has apparently been hard to acquire, due to its popularity. Over the weekend, conservative writer Kassy Dillon tweeted from a Popeyes drive-through that was limiting the popular sandwiches to four per customer.
The Socialist Party of Great Britain saw Kassy’s tweet, and responded:
Capitalism means shortages? That’s quite the take. The per customer limit has nothing to do with socialism versus capitalism – it’s all about supply and demand.
Twitterites were quick to school The Socialist Party:
Capitalism creates while socialism just takes. It’s that simple. In America, you can go to Popeyes and get up to four chicken sandwiches. If that’s not enough, you can go back. If Popeyes is sold out, you can go to Chick-Fil-A or KFC.
Meanwhile, in socialist countries like Venezuela, people are starving in the streets.
