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.

But this definition of Socialism is merely the opiate-induced dream of Utopia.

This is the sweetened icing that’s been spread over a poisonous cake.

You absolutely cannot have a society where all own every industry in common, and you certainly can never produce such a society without the Alpha Wolves asserting dominance, control, greed, and the slaughter of those who get in the way.

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.

Is the drug that each generation’s enlightened hippies, nature lovers, and university students think they’re striving for, but none of the sheep see the wolves that have them hemmed in on every side.

This Utopian Socialism Dream never accounts for those who ensure equality in all things, without becoming the ravenous wolves themselves.

Everything’s equal, right?

Everyone gets & pays a fair share, right?

Everybody owns everything, right?

These are some of the reasons each generation begins to discuss “different forms” of socialism, when they’re being exposed.

Who ensures all receive an equal share of food, without themselves, taking the lion’s share; and the best, for themselves?

Who ensures all receive an equal share of the profits from industry, without themselves, siphoning off ever-increasing fees, fines, and other costs?

Who ensures everyone pays their fair share of the costs to operate such a society, without mounds of re-tape, theft, bribery, extortion, and other forms of corruption?

Each generation latches onto the ideological arguments that things such as fire departments, police departments, public libraries, public schools, public roads, public sidewalks, etc…

Neither Jane nor John Q Citizen OWNS the fire departments, police departments, public libraries, public schools, public roads, or the public sidewalks, etc…

Wannabe-Socialists introduce this “different forms” of Socialism vernacular because each person makes it up they go along.

Go poll 5 socialists from each state in America, and ask them all the same 20 questions. You’ll find out just how disconnected they are from one another.

Socialism is an idea, and it fails every single time it rises up in another society. It is cancer that seeks to devour its host and move on.
