The far-left publication, The Nation, published an article titled, Democracy and politics on the left, which has attracted myriad supportive comments from the young socialists on reddit.
The author, Atle Hetland, a Norweigan, calls Socialism by its PC name – Democracy – as he touts its alleged successes. He believes Socialists have won in moral and ethical fields.
The left lies to achieve their ends so it’s hard to know where he’s coming from with this, especially since leftist ideology is responsible for creating chaos and suffering throughout the world.
In addition to spouting the usual leftist ideological favorites – those moral tenets – like abortion any time any how and control by government over the economic sector, he thinks the leftists lost in the arguments about the economic sector because they concentrated on taxation and regulation but not on revitalizing the private sector. His complete lack of understanding of the private sector is evident in that alone.
Dwelling on his arguments is painful and a waste of time but what really is worth considering are the reactions by those reading the article. It’s alarming – leftism is making a comeback in a big way.
It’s a bad trend and it’s relatively new.
First of all, they want opponents dead. Their minds are closed and they do not consider the fact that maybe the elderly understand what Socialism has done in the past.
They think Bernie Sanders is moderate.
More freebies for loafers:
Here in Germany, we don’t only have free university, we also pay you to study without distractions if your (parents) income is not that great. This is mainstream here and supported by our centrist parties and I am pretty sure that would be radical in the USA.
It’s exactly what Bernie said with free community colleges. Even Hillary has something similar.
“By 2021, families with income up to $125,000 will pay no tuition at in-state four-year public colleges and universities. And from the beginning, every student from a family making $85,000 a year or less will be able to go to an in-state four-year public college or university without paying tuition.”
So again, give me some radically left ideas coming from mainstream parties in Europe. This is a myth that needs to die.
They have a 100% lack of understanding of how taxation and freebies work.
What American’s don’t get is that when they are taxed, they contribute to roads, schools, hospitals, sewage, infrastructure, etc. They don’t get it. They think the government just steals their money and for some reason, common elements exist on their own. Ask them to pay another 1-2% of taxes a month for universal healthcare and education, and they will shit themselves thinking they are being robbed. Yep, they rather spend the $8k to have a baby then a chip off their income to allow everyone the same equal healthcare rights.
Then again, you could lower or eliminate all lower income taxes if y’all stopped spending trillions pillaging other countries.
This is our future.
