It happens when people spout constant nonsense and hysteria.

Actually the propaganda of the 20th century was, by and large, pro-socialist.

"The Propaganda" as if there was only one.


Look how well that worked out. It wasn't until only a few decades ago that the facts of the horrors of socialism became available.

The horrors, according to the Ministry of Truth.

Good thing you are on the side of right.

There is something hysterical about 60 million deaths at the hands of socialists?

You have reached peak absurdity. Just can't keep Christians out of your mouth, eh?

You can spot upper inflection from a single word of text?

Skills!

Well just pointing out how much falacy you are using. And lack of an argument you have.

Ideas don't kill people the idiots interpreting them do.

It was a question, as evidenced by the question mark.

Sarcasm?

Either way, seems your arguments petered out.

Like what the fact that you drone on about socialist Europe's Healthcare.

What would you bring up Nk, China, Cuba?

Do you think that is where Europe is heading.

In your mind you believe we are going to go from crony capitalism and an oligarchy to Venezuelan socialism?


You have almost no point other than to hysterically react to social ideas.

Would using a Swiss health care model make us want Hitler to be president?

It was sarcasm. I think they are the opposite.

My arguments still stand.

Individualism is the advocacy of the interests of individual over the state or social groups. That's the opposite of socialism.

No it isn't. Socialism is not an obstacle to the physical, intellectual, or moral development of man.

I've never mentioned Europe's healthcare or any healthcare for that matter. There might be some growing cracks in your reality here.

I explicitly stated individuals. It is an obstacle to the physical, intellectual, and moral development of individuals.

That is just an opinion. Obviously, they are not mutually exclusive.

You might stand by your arguments but your arguments do not stand.

So your telling me if I go through the comments from your last month your not droning on about leftists and bashing European socialist ideas?

You know there are as many nutty socialist leftists as there are nutty far right fascist types?

The US is never going to be NK unless it has a complete collapse unrelated to providing universal health care.

We are never going to be Venezuela.

So the only comparable "socialist" societies are in Europe. Whether or not they meet your description of total socialist or not. We also can manage to make a few socialist things like make sure your employer can't pry into your private life, or you don't go bankrupt from hospital bills.

Your having a conversation about an unrelated topic.
