Socialism for Dummies and Hipsters

Freedom Outpost

I am constantly amazed by young people who have drunken so deeply of the kool-aid offered by the left-wing. They actually believe the propaganda and lies used by Marxists. It’s really quite sad to see so many that have been so completely bamboozled, no wonder we think our educational system is in the proverbial outhouse.

They do not use facts to bolster their arguments, just anger and rhetoric, no facts to back-up any retort, just anger and dismissal. You see that’s how they do things when they know they have no hard data to prove their side of the argument. Here are some examples from individuals on the web, they come from Craigslist in the “Rants and Raves” section.

First, let me give you the definition of Socialism:

so·cial·ism noun \ˈsō-shə-ˌli-zəm\
: a way of organizing a society in which major industries are owned and controlled by the government rather than by individual people and companies Full Definition of SOCIALISM 1 : any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods 2 a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private property b : a system or condition of society in which the means of production are owned and controlled by the state 3 : a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done.

Here is the Cloward-Piven strategy being played out right now in America mentioned by one of my fellow contributors Sid Wolf.

If that is the type of society one wishes to live in (IF one can find it), then please feel free to move to one of the many countries that have socialism as their form of government. They encourage mediocrity, not greatness; the belief that everybody gets a trophy just for participating turns a society into an effeminate shadow of its own self.  Just look at Norway or Greece.
Here’s the rub about all of this:  The “utopia” that they are all searching for and so desperately desire, does not exist.  It never has and it never will.  You see, life isn’t fair.  There are winners, and there are losers. You get no guarantees when you are born and even though you may work hard your whole life…there are still none, no gold watch waiting at the finish line.   There are still going to be the “haves” and “have-nots,” and those at the top of the socialist political ladder are ALWAYS the “have’s”. And the rest are merely worker-bees, plebeians or serfs.

  1. It’s important to remember that ownership and control are distinctions without a difference. Which brings us to today… what businesses exist in the US absent government control?

  2. Our kids are being taught this from Head Start to liberal Collage. No wonder they think like this. Real history of this country is being deliberatley ignored. What to do about it? I’m not sure. Maybe more home schooling
