that's scary to hear... socialism never ends well. When will people learn???
Perhaps when they are not starving, unemployed, homeless, dying before there time, seeing there family working to death for low pay.
Perhaps when people actually live the bible rather than claim to be christian's by giving there extra coat to the person that has non, sharing the
food on there own plate with those that are hungry, sheltering the homeless under there own roof.
But noooooo you see you know best now don't you, the rich should have everything, the poor should be worked to death, the homeless don't deserve to
live, the one without a coat whom could not find work or was too ill to work deserves to die.
When indeed will they ever learn.
A Christian Employer pay's his workers a FAIR and Ethical wage, a capitalist employer (you can not walk the middle of the road on that issue) pay's
them as little as he possibly can and if every other employer does the same that is very little indeed.
Of course I myself am centre left but not from the US were your government and hoovers FBI did a great number in brainwashing your population against
socialism and even purged some of your greatest film stars and movie directors (Orson Welles among a great many others) - of course they were using
fire to fight fire as the soviets did have some agent's,. But then Cino/Soviet type communism is not really socialism it is rather a totalitarian
rule with the PARTY taking the place of a monarchy in all but name and is actually far worse while centrist left is nothing like that, it is mostly
capitalism with care for the people given a far higher priority than in any pure capitalists system and essential services (Education, health care and
welfare safety net) protected and provided at state level.
Capitalism meanwhile can only burn bright while there is fuel and when that fuel is gone only those closest to the fire 'the rich' continue to
benefit from it's dying light while they seek something else to burn, to be frank your system worked well enough when most of you had your own
business or were otherwise self employed and money had more value (while the US was still expanding and in the period shortly thereafter) but then the
corporations destroyed you and inflation took your money away - except for the elite - and that ended your American dream which despite taking on a
quasi religious mythical level of devotion in the brain washed mass of the population was only ever an illusion to the majority anyway - a piece of
cheese on a string to draw them along.
And anyway what will your current system do when there are no more job's because you know automation will replace even the cheapest labour some day,
mass murder, sterilize and cull the population with engineered diseases, food additives, even war or continue to become more and more unequal until it
fall's apart of it's own accord as happened to so very many civilizations in the past when the few had it all and the many had nothing.
Ever remember the story of Smaug the Dragon from the Hobbit living in lonely mountain with all the gold and jewel's in a pile, the elite are more
than a little like that with power and wealth, if you threaten them in any way they will become that dragon hunting the thief, the difference is that
they also have army of orc's to do there bidding were Smaug would have eaten them too.
