America is more concerned with learning all 78 gender neutral pronouns that we are compelled to know now instead. Yes...78 of them.


Which is dumb. A third of them are redundant.

There's a war on language. It's straight outta 1984. They want to confuse the masses to the point everything is meaningless. I believe the quote is something along the lines of: "By confusing language we will make even thought crime impossible".

Yes!!
I remember mucho humorous confusion when as a young teenager there was an American musical on telly with some old guy merrily singing "smack her on the fanny".
I can still remember thinking "OMG, did he just say that? CAN he say that?". I had no idea back then that fanny means bum in America, deviates!!

Hey, at least I stick to some rules...you on the other hand capitalize every 2nd word. I must run a statistical analysis on your posts. Maybe you're sending coded messages...

Do you mean the "redefinition of words" brought to us thanks to the left?

Such as the real" definition of "socialism" instead of the "re-invented" definition?

Real definition of "Socialism: The State owns and controls the means of production."

The re-invented definition of "Socialism: The people own and control the means of production."

Maybe you're thinking of communism? Socialism still means the same thing it always has.
Definition of socialism from Google...
"a political and economic theory of social organization which advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole"
Also Wikipedia...
"Socialism is a range of economic and social systems characterised by social ownership and workers' self-management of the means of production as well as the political theories and movements associated with them. There are many varieties of socialism and there is no single definition encapsulating all of them, though social rather than individual ownership is the common element shared by its various forms".
Granted it does go on to say that one interpretation(out of several)of " social ownership" can be "state ownership" but it is hardly the sole definition.
It seems the Wall Street, vulture capitalist, CFR oligarchs etc agenda to make socialism(ownership and means of production is maintained in the hands of the people being the most accurate definition IMO)a dirty word has worked perfectly on many ATS members.
The meaning of a term doesn't change just because some opponents believe something erroneously.
Its intellectually corrupt to take just one obscure subdefinition and use it as the single main definition of a term just because it suits some shadowy groups capitalist/anti independent/empowered worker agenda(personally I'm fine with capitalism, like any doctrine its how its applied that matters).
Corrupt leaders will work out how to manipulate and use any political system for personal gain, sometimes leaving a toxic, lasting legacy that is loaded with negative baggage.
Remember China is a strict Communist/capitalist country and they're doing just fine economically and socially.
A country with that many people would totally need a tight, regimented system in place to keep entropy and chaos in check.
