But Mark was a Communist?

You say toe-may-toe and I say toe-mah-toe.

What is Socialism?

Socialism has failed everywhere it’s been tried.

Name a Socialist Empire that’s lasted 100 years.

What is socialism? This is a question that has 10 billion answers.

This is the simplest I’ve ever found

Socialism is a political, social, and economic philosophy encompassing a range of economic and social systems characterized by social ownership of the means of production and democratic control, such as workers’ self-management of enterprises.

Many wish to point to China as a Socialist nation.

This is not what China has, or exercises.

Utopian Socialism

Socialism is merely an economic vehicle used on the road to Communism; Karl Marx knew this, as did Comrades Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Hugo Chavez, and even Fidel Castro.

The “Living Wage” argument will never disappear because needs grow as prices rise.

The move towards a $15 minimum wage is another creation of big business, as an attack to crush the middle class and cripple those below middle class.

Giants such as Coca-Cola, Pepsi, ABC, NBC, Merk, etc… can afford to pay a $15 per hour minimum wage, but neither the middle class struggling Mom & Pop, nor your average “Start-Up” can afford such starting wages.

This is not an attack on or against Capitalism; though it is believed to be just that by many on the Political Left, but is something which produces the designed results in further consolidation of power, control and wealth, for the fat-cats.

This rush towards a ridiculous notion that higher minimum wages will get more people into a “living wage” bracket or lifestyle, is simply preposterous to even consider.

All one has to do is look around the country to see what is happening in places such as Seattle, San Francisco, and even New York City, where the implementation of this ever-increasing path towards $15 per hour, hurts employees with cuts in hours and benefits available, prices of all goods and services being increased by the “Owners’, to compensate their new payroll figures, and just how many businesses are simply downsizing, closing their doors, or moving out of state.

The political move by the Left is under the delusion that the “owners” having to pay these increased wages, somehow helps towards leveling the playing field between the owner, management, and “Labor”. (I’m suddenly reminded of the bourgeoisie and proletariat arguments of Karl Marx)

Some even foolishly believing that this increase in the minimum wage somehow punishes the big boys.

All they do is raise the costs for their products and/or services, and it’s still the little guy/consumer, that suffers.

This tactic is anything but new in society.

Communism existed long before anyone coined this term/word, as is true of any and all forms of Leftist ideology with respect to governments, and the people they govern.

Socialism is merely an economic vehicle used on the road to Communism; Karl Marx knew this, as did Comrades Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Hugo Chavez, and even Fidel Castro.

The Left almost universally presents us with the promise of a more utopian existence for all but this is merely a tactic and a ploy, to gain the support of the fools being used, to further enrich their controllers, widening the gap even further between the haves and the have-nots.

In even the best imagined utopian societies, there will always be the few at the top, who are hoarding-off the best and most for themselves, while distributing the scraps amongst the subservient peasants, and killing off those that actively resist.

The Socialist Utopia does not exist, except in the dreams of fools, and political plans of those who know such methods only benefit those in power.

Socialism, Communism, Marxism, Progressivism, etc… are not only all Leftist and Liberal, but they are also Statist at their core.

This is merely one more reflection of the R.A.F.O.N. at work, throughout history.
