I don't think any of them ran on a platform of state control of property.


Of course not, doing so would be suicide.

No one would ever accept that. And any unlawful attempts to seize private property would be met with overwhelming resolve. Always. Universally.


Personally? As a last resort? I'd torch everything I own before turning it over to someone else without a fight. Scorched Earth works, historically. Just ask Caesar.

Voluntary community is the key. Trying to force freedom loving Americans into collectivism is a bloody mistake. Giving them such a choice as an option? I can see widespread support, in fact. Look at "burning man"

Socialism


a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.


"The goal of socialism is communism".

-Vladimir Lenin

"Democracy is indispensable to socialism".

They just had a Dem candidate overperform by 20 points in a special election, and now DSA backed candidates are beating the middle-of-the-road incumbents. Maybe it's trending more Left than you realize.

Obviously you looked no farther than the letter after the guy's name. The Democrat in that special election ran as a gun-loving conservative who doesn't give a crap about trying to impeach Trump. Politically, there was almost no difference between him and the Republican.

We need more Democrats like him.

Better hope the jobs reports get worse or they don't stand a chance.

The party is headed towards an official platform of a guaranteed job for everyone and a $15 an hour federal minimum wage.

That would be half the adult population.

Democratic socialism is a farce. Once these socialists come to power, they will drop the “democratic” part and reveal their true motives, where they will use human beings as the brick and mortar for their utopian vision.

Socialism is NOT a service provided by government, it is distributed stagnation passed off as measured prosperity.

What socialists see as equality and what ignorant, fat and happy 1st worlders see as equality, are two totally different things. The reality is stark.

They won't realize it until it's too late, of course.
