Well, firstly, let me just state that I personally think socialism is a bad idea.
Now with that being said, I'll also state that in a way, if you live in a western society, you sort of have been "programmed" to view certain
things in certain ways. When you think Mason, for instance, most think "power, influence, shaowdy figures." When one thinks dictator, one generally
sees images of "Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin," et cetera.
Why? Well, we have been flooded with such images throughout our lives.
