Panera Bread Gives Up on Socialism

Democrats are not the only ones who insist on proving yet again that socialism does not work. Panera Bread recently proved it by applying Marx’s “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs” motto to selling food:

Panera Bread’s socialist pay-what-you-want restaurant, Panera Cares, will officially be closing shop on February 15 due to the business model’s unsustainability.

Moonbats like sustainability when it comes to envirotyrannical demagoguery, but not so much regarding economic matters.

Panera tried to create a socialist system in which meals were offered at a suggested donation price. That means some people would pay more while others would pay less based on what they felt like or could afford. By not simply offering food at a low price (hat-tip, Dollar Tree), Panera completely removed any incentive for patrons to meet even the lowest standards of consumer/retailer exchange. The result: some people paid their fair share while others enjoyed a “free lunch.”

If that sounds familiar, you may be thinking of the Welfare State.

Panera Cares went on to open five locations in cities like Dearborn, Portland, Chicago, Boston, and St. Louis. None of the restaurants were self-sustaining, with some locations reportedly being “mobbed” by students along with homeless people looking for a free meal.

This calls to mind the underdefended US border.

The last remaining Panera Cares will be shut down next week in Boston. Too bad the border won’t be shut down so long as socialists have a say in the matter.
