    I'm Swedish and my former boss was Venezuelan. You know what, we both hate socialism because we know what it is and what it does. Sweet in the front and deadly in the end is the perfect description of socialism.

        For a German like me the American use of the term socialism is funny. Because having universal health care and basically free university access has been implemented by our conservative governments for decades.

                  When social security came out it was evil socialism! When medicare came out vile Socialism! When people were pushing for smokers not to smoke in confined places with non-smokers they were called communists... See a pattern here yet?

                            This reminds me of the Marxian idea that it was capitalism that would bring about the socialist revolution.

                              Another good quote: After were were told do this and that so we wouldn't get another double digit increase in costs and meeting the requirements they set down the (rock ribbed, life long Republican) CEO of my old place of employment walking (storming) out of a meeting with an insurance company after they told him we were getting another double digit increase in our costs: "We are going to have socialised medicine in this country and IT WILL BE YOUR FAULT"! Rich, powerful assholes cause socialism.

                                  You. You are responsible. You and the other late night propagandists masquerading as comedians. You analyse or emphasise something that isn’t actually happening or is happening but on a very small scale because it aligns with your propaganda. Then people start thinking it actually is happening because why else would a major network cover it? This is media today. Controlling people, not informing them.

                                    "Socialism is not only dangerous but it is also evil" Well.. YES that's correct. For fucks sake be careful what you wish for or you'll be eating rats in a decade.

                                        Socialism,like abortion and homosexuality is being engineered and molded to shape a future of a culture depending on the state ruled by elites. No man will let anyone fuc k with his family or his source of income. This foreign idiot is part of the inoculation of the masses.

                                                    That’s the most modern example of a person talking like Karl Marx that I have ever seen. Classic bourgeoisie blaming the bourgeoisie for the problems of the poor. Scary that people unironically agree with this

I used to ride the elevator sometimes with the CEO of my former employer. She wouldn't say a word to the regular employees and always had this righteous looking smirk on her face. Story is that she got a hefty retirement package to live off of for the rest of her life. When I got laid off there was no severance for me and now their cutting into medicaid? As i said,modern day slavery.

People in power have always rigged the economic/political system in their favor.

All these Fox News are talking about Soviet Union which was not Democratic Socialism it was kind of a ideal Socialism which is not possible because people are inherently greedy and they will need to earn. Best example is what China has become now there idea is Socialism but country has capitalist economy. People can buy best cars house and things. Soviet Russia did not allow that they all would be given same car same house same clothes and state would give them all they just had to work it was a very idealistic Socialism and it irritated people it was not fit for that time. Now China and Russia both have understood Capitalist Economy with Socialist ideology is the future. Nepal is also moving in the same line though its a Democracy it is uplifting all poor people together and maintaining the balance.

Oh wait, that's not possible because of the identity politics. The wave of identity politics plus the push towards Socialism/Democratic Socialism/Social Democracy is eerie.
