Ana Kasparian Drops Mic On Right-Wing Pundit


>>ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ HAS
BEEN GETTING A LOT OF PRESS LATELY, SHE IS THE CONGRESSIONAL
CANDIDATE WHO WON THE PRIMARY AGAINST AN ESTABLISHMENT
DEMOCRAT IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK, AND SHE RAN A VERY BOLD,
DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST CAMPAIGN. NOW, THE SMEARS HAVE BEGUN FROM
THOSE ON THE RIGHT WING, AND SOME PEOPLE ON THE LEFT AS WELL
WHICH WE’VE TALKED ABOUT IN THE PAST, BUT RECENTLY I WAS ON HLN
DEBATING SOMEONE FROM THE RIGHT WING, A CONSERVATIVE BY THE NAME
OF ALLIE STUCKEY, SHE’S THE HOST OF THE CONSERVATIVE REVIEW, AND
SHE MADE A LOT OF ERRORS IN DESCRIBING WHAT DEMOCRATIC
SOCIALISM IS. SO FIRST FOR ANYONE WHO MIGHT NOT KNOW WHAT
IT IS, I WAS ASKED WHAT DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM IS AND I
ANSWER IN THIS NEXT VIDEO.>>ANA, SOME MIGHT SAY THAT
MEANS FREE STUFF FOR EVERYONE.>>THAT’S THE WAY THAT
INDIVIDUALS WANT TO DEFAME DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISTS, AS IF
EVERYONE IS LOOKING FOR A HANDOUT. BUT IN REALITY WHAT WE
ARE LOOKING FOR, AND I DO ALSO IDENTIFY AS A DEMOCRATIC
SOCIALIST, IS EQUALITY OF OPPORTUNITY AND ALSO A GUARANTEE
OF WHAT WE BELIEVE ARE FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS FOR HUMAN
BEINGS, INCLUDING COMPLETE COVERAGE OF HEALTHCARE,
EDUCATION, THE BASICS TO SURVIVE. NO ONE IS LOOKING FOR
THE GOVERNMENT TO MAKE OUR SNEAKERS, WE AREN’T LOOKING TO
OVERTHROW A CAPITALISTIC SYSTEM, BUT WE ARE LOOKING TO REFORM IT
BECAUSE RIGHT NOW THE MAJORITY OF THE WEALTH AND THE INCOME IS
REALLY FOCUSED AND TARGETED TOWARD THE TOP 1%. EVERYONE ELSE
IS SUFFERING INCLUDING THE MILL CLASS, WHICH CONTINUES TO SHRINK
UNDER THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION.>>THAT’S NEARLY A PERFECT
ANSWER. YOU ARE KIND OF AWESOME. SO I WANT EVERYONE TO
UNDERSTAND, FURTHER CONTEXT NOW THAT WE AREN’T ON TV AND HAVE
MORE TIME TO TALK, IS THAT FIRST OF ALL THE WHOLE THING IS A
MISNOMER BECAUSE ALL SIDES USE THE WORD SOCIALISM WITHOUT EVER
DEFINING IT, AND THE REALITY IS THAT ALMOST ALL THE WESTERN
COUNTRIES LIVE IN A MIXED ECONOMY. SO THERE’S ONLY
QUESTIONS AROUND THE EDGES, AND MOST OF THOSE ARE SETTLED FOR
ALMOST ALL THE COUNTRIES EXCEPT US. WHAT DO I MEAN BY THAT? ARE
THERE THINGS THAT THE PUBLIC SECTOR DOES IN EVERY COUNTRY
INCLUDING AMERICA? OF COURSE, THERE ARE COPS, THE MILITARY,
FIREFIGHTERS, AND SO MANY OTHER THINGS THAT THE GOVERNMENT DOES. IT’S NOT LIKE PRIVATE CAPITAL DOES EVERYTHING. NOW, IN THE
REST OF THE DEVELOPED WORLD THE GOVERNMENT ALSO PROVIDES
HEALTHCARE, THAT’S PART OF EQUALITY OF OPPORTUNITY THAT ANA
WAS REFERRING TO BECAUSE IF YOU ARE DEAD YOU DON’T HAVE ANY
OPPORTUNITY. SO MOST CIVILIZED COUNTRIES SAY WE SHOULD HAVE AT
LEAST A BIRMINGHAM STANDARD FOR HEALTHCARE FOR OUR CITIZENS. WE
DON’T, WE ARE MORE VICIOUS. BUT WE STILL LIVE IN A MIXED
ECONOMY. AND IN EUROPE THEY DON’T HAVE THE GOVERNMENT MAKE
FURNITURE. I DON’T KNOW IF YOU HAVE HEARD OF A STORE CALLED
IKEA, THAT’S IN A VERY SOCIALIST COUNTRY, IN SWEDEN. THE
GOVERNMENT DOESN’T MAKE MEATBALLS AND THEY DON’T MAKE
FURNITURE. IT’S A MIXED ECONOMY. SO WHAT DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISTS
ARE SAYING IN THIS COUNTRY IS WE SHOULD ALSO DO HEALTHCARE, LIKE
THE REST OF THE WESTERN WORLD, THE REST OF THE CIVILIZED WORLD,
AND NOT JUST THE WEST BUT JAPAN AND ALL THESE OTHER COUNTRIES
THAT HAVE HAD GREAT SUCCESS AND HAVE MUCH BETTER HEALTHCARE FOR
THEIR CITIZENS AT A LOWER COST. AND THE ONLY OTHER THING THAT’S
A MAJOR FACTOR IS, DO YOU DO FREE COLLEGE? AND THERE HAS BEEN
GREAT SUCCESS WITH COUNTRIES THAT HAVE DONE FREE COLLEGE, IT
ACTUALLY STIMULATES THE ECONOMY, IT CREATES MORE JOBS, ETC. NOW,
WE ARE HAVING THIS TOTALLY FAKE DEBATE IN THE NATIONAL MEDIA
ABOUT ARE YOU A SOCIALIST OR NOT? A SOCIALIST OR CAPITALIST?>>YOU KNOW WHY? THERE IS A
GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO INTENTIONALLY MISLEAD THE
AMERICAN PEOPLE ABOUT WHAT DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM IS. THEY
TRY TO PAINT THIS PICTURE OF FIDEL CASTRO AND CHE GUEVARA
DOING A VIOLENT REVOLUTION AND MURDERING PEOPLE AND BASICALLY
HAVING THE GOVERNMENT CONTROL EVERYTHING WITH NO PRIVATE
SECTOR. THAT IS NOT WHAT DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISTS WANT. LET’S MAKE THAT ABSOLUTELY CLEAR. AND THEN THERE ARE THE
HONESTLY IDIOTS WHO FALL FOR THAT PROPAGANDA. AND
UNFORTUNATELY I HAD TO PUSH BACK AGAINST THAT PROPAGANDA IN THIS
ENTIRE SEGMENT THAT I WAS PARTICIPATING IN. NOW, I’M
REALLY HAPPY WE AT LEAST HAD THAT CONVERSATION AND HOPEFULLY
IT INFORMS SOME PEOPLE, BUT I DO WANT TO GO TO THE NEXT VIDEO
BECAUSE IT WILL GIVE YOU A SENSE OF HOW MUCH THAT PROPAGANDA HAS
MANAGED TO SEEP INTO THE MINDS OF SO MANY AMERICANS.>>FIRST OF ALL THE DEMOCRATIC
PARTY HAS MOVED MUCH FURTHER TO THE LEFT SINCE 1990, THAT’S NOT
AN OPINION, YOU CAN LOOK AT PEW RESEARCH ON VIRTUALLY EVERY
SINGLE ISSUE SINCE 1990 THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY HAS MOVED TO
THE LEFT WHEREAS REPUBLICANS HAVE STAYED ABOUT THE SAME, SO
IT’S NOT TRUE TO SAY THAT THIS IS SOME SORT OF REFORM GOING
BACK TO THE ORIGINAL PURPOSE OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. THE FACT
IS THAT THEY ARE PUTTING SOCIALIST CANDIDATES OUT THERE,
AND SOCIALISM HAS NOT WORKED. YOU CAN TELL ME DEMOCRATIC
SOCIALISM IS DIFFERENT, IT’S NOT TRUE, IT’S JUST SOCIALISM YOU
CHOOSE. IT’S NOT POSSIBLE TO MAINTAIN A CAPITALIST SOCIETY IN
WHICH THE GOVERNMENT TAKES OVER THE MEANS OF PRODUCTION, IT
DOESN’T WORK, THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DEAD AND BURIED
PEOPLE THAT CAN ATTEST TO THE DANGER OF SOCIALISM AND
COMMUNISM.>>YOU ARE CONFUSING SOCIALISM
— DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM WITH SOCIALISM. NO ONE IS LOOKING TO
OVERTHROW A CAPITALISTIC SYSTEM, I BELIEVE IN CAPITALISM, BUT WE
HAVE NOW CRONY CAPITALISM. AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IN GENERAL,
THAT INCLUDES REPUBLICANS, ARE SICK OF IT. IF YOU LOOK AT THE
APPROVAL RATING FOR DONALD TRUMP’S MASSIVE TAX CUTS FOR
CORPORATIONS, EVEN AMONG REPUBLICANS, THE APPROVAL RATING
HAS DROPPED CONSIDERABLY BECAUSE PEOPLE HAVE NOTICED, LOOK, ALL
THESE TAX CUTS ARE ONLY BENEFITING THE TOP 1%, NOT THE
AMERICAN PEOPLE.>>THAT’S NOT TRUE.>>BY THE WAY, A FEDERAL JUDGE
APPOINTED BY BUSH, BY BUSH, JUST STRUCK DOWN THE ZERO-TOLERANCE
POLICY UNDER THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION, INDICATING THAT
YES, THE RIGHT WING HAS MOVED FURTHER TO THE RIGHT.>>SO, LOOK, THIS IS WHAT THEY
DO, THEY GO ON TV AND UNLESS THERE IS SOMEONE LIKE ANA WHO
WILL FIGHT BACK AND NOT LET HER STEAMROLL THEM THEY JUST GO, OH,
SOCIALISM MEANS YOU TAKE OVER ALL MEANS OF PRODUCTION, THAT’S
WHAT DEMOCRATIC SOCIALISM MEANS. THAT IS NOT REMOTELY TRUE. AND
IT MEANS MILLIONS OF DEAD PEOPLE. OKAY, FIRST OF ALL, ALL
THESE WORDS, EVERYONE PUTS DIFFERENT MEANING ON THEM. I
GUESS SHE’S REFERRING TO COMMUNISM, OKAY, SO STALIN TAKES
OVER COMMUNISM, I DON’T BELIEVE IN COMMUNISM AT ALL, AND HE
TAKES IT OVER AND THEN THERE IS MILLIONS OF DEAD PEOPLE. WELL,
RIGHT NEXT DOOR WAS HITLER, WHO DID FASCISM, WHICH IS A
COMBINATION OF THE CORPORATE WORLD WITH THE GOVERNMENT, AND
MILLIONS OF DEAD PEOPLE. SO TWO CAN PLAY AT THIS GAME. LET’S
TALK ABOUT WHAT WE ARE FOR, THE POLICY POSITIONS TODAY, NOT YOUR
FANTASIES. SO THE POLICY POSITIONS ARE THE ONES WE JUST
OUTLINED. AND EVERY ONE OF HER CLAIMS WAS WRONG. THE DEMOCRATIC
PARTY HAS MOVED WAY TO THE LEFT SINCE THE 1990S? WAIT A MINUTE,
IF YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT THE POLLING OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE,
YES, THE POLLING SHOWS NOT JUST DEMOCRATIC VOTERS BUT ALMOST ALL
THE VOTERS HAVE MOVED TO THE LEFT. THE POLITICIANS DON’T
LISTEN TO THEM, BUT THE VOTERS HAVE MOVED TO THE LEFT, THEY DO
WANT MEDICARE FOR ALL, LEGALIZED MARIJUANA, A RAISED MINIMUM
WAGE, I DON’T WANT TO LET THE BANKS TAKE THOSE RISKS AND RUN
ROUGHSHOD OVER US, BUT ARE DEMOCRATIC POLITICIANS MOVING TO
THE LEFT? NO, UNTIL BERNIE SANDERS AND ALEXANDRIA
OCASIO-CORTEZ THEY WERE MOVING TO THE RIGHT, THEY WERE
PRO-CORPORATE BECAUSE THEY TAKE CORPORATE DONATIONS. TO CLAIM
THAT THEY WERE LEFTIST OR SOCIALIST IS PREPOSTEROUS.>>SHE HAD MENTIONED, ALL MY
GOSH, I’M BLANKING RIGHT NOW, THE LAWMAKER THAT EVERYONE SAYS
IS NEXT IN LINE TO BE THE NEXT OBAMA BUT HE TOOK ALL THAT MONEY
FROM PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES, I CAN’T BELIEVE I’M BLANKING ON
HIS NAME.>>CORY BOOKER?>>WOW. SHE HAD MENTIONED CORY
BOOKER IN THIS EXCHANGE, WE CAN’T SHOW YOU THE FULL VIDEO
BECAUSE IT’S LIKE 11 MINUTES LONG, BUT SHE DESCRIBED HIM AS,
LIKE, FAR LEFT, RADICAL LEFTY.>>CORY BOOKER, FAR LEFT. HILARIOUS.>>DO YOUR RESEARCH IF YOU ARE
GOING TO MAKE THESE TYPES OF CLAIMS. AND I’VE BEEN ON THIS
SHOW SEVERAL TIMES, I LOVE DOING THE SHOW, IT AT LEAST GIVES ME A
CHANCE TO GET PROGRESSIVE IDEAS OUT THERE IN THE MAINSTREAM
MEDIA, RIGHT? BUT I ALWAYS TRY TO BE RESPECTFUL BECAUSE I DON’T
LIKE CROSS TALKING OR TALKING OVER PEOPLE, BUT WHAT THEY TELL
YOU? I’M DONE BEING NICE, I’M DONE BEING MRS. NICE WOMAN OR
WHATEVER. I WANT TO FIGHT BACK, WE CAN’T KEEP LETTING THEM RUN
WITH THEIR NARRATIVE AND CONTROL THE MESSAGING OUT THERE BECAUSE
THAT IS WHAT IS HAPPENING TIME AND AGAIN. PEOPLE LITERALLY
THINK THAT WE WANT THE GOVERNMENT TO TAKE OVER
EVERYTHING. I CAN TELL YOU, I DON’T WANT THE GOVERNMENT MAKING
THE CLOTHES I WEAR. I DON’T WANT THE GOVERNMENT DECIDING WHAT CAR
I DRIVE. I DON’T WANT THE GOVERNMENT DOING ANY OF THAT,
BUT WHAT I DO WANT IS TO ENSURE THAT AMERICANS HAVE THE BARE
NECESSITIES TO SURVIVE. AND BY THE WAY, SHE TALKS ABOUT HOW
AMERICA IS THE NUMBER ONE COUNTRY IN THE WORLD, WE ARE
NUMBER ONE — I HAVE THE STATS TO PROVE THAT THAT IS NOT THE
CASE.>>BUT WHAT I DO WANT IS TO
ENSURE THAT AMERICANS HAVE THE BARE NECESSITIES TO SURVIVE. BY THE WAY, SHE TALKS ABOUT HOW
AMERICA IS THE NUMBER ONE COUNTRY IN THE WORLD.>>I JUST WANT TO SAY TWO THINGS,
UNLIKE THAT PERSON WE ACTUALLY DO STUDY FACTS AND TALK
ABOUT IT ON THE SHOW? WHEN WE SAY CORY BOOKER IS
NOWHERE NEAR A LEFTIST THERE IS A REASON. WHEN 2012 WHEN OBAMA WAS RUNNING
AGAINST MITT ROMNEY, AND HE LIKELY TWEAKED WALL STREET. CORY BOOKER DEFENDED MITT
ROMNEY. PEOPLE COULD HAVE LEGITIMATE
DEBATES ABOUT HOW MUCH WORK A CONTROL SHOULD THERE BE OVER
COMPANIES. A REALLY INTERESTING MODEL IS IN
GERMANY WHERE THEY HAVE THEIR BOARDS HALF LABOR, AND HALF
INVESTORS AND MANAGEMENT.>>LET’S GO TO THE NEXT VIDEO
BECAUSE THIS WAS MY PERSONAL FAVORITE. TAKE A LOOK.>>DO WE WANT TO START PAYING
CLOSE TO HUNDRED PERCENT IN INCOME TAXES LIKE SCANDINAVIA? COUNTRIES THAT BERNIE SANDERS HAS SAID THAT HE ACTUALLY LOVES
AND WANTS TO MODEL OUR COUNTRY AFTER.>>UNBELIEVABLE NO ONE IS ASKING
ñ YOU ARE PAINTING A COMPLETELY FALSE NARRATIVE OR PICTURE OF
WHAT THOSE ON THE LEFT ARE ASKING FOR. NO ONE IS ASKING FOR 100%
TAXATION.>>I’M NOT ASSUMING THINGS. YOU CAN LOOK AT SCANDINAVIA,
AND THE COUNTRIES WHO OF ACTUALLY EMBRACE SOCIALISM. THEY DON’T DO WELL.>>I HAVE THE DATA. FIRST OF ALL, NO ONE HAS
ASKED ME FOR 100% TAXATION, I SAID THAT IN THAT
CLIP. BERNIE SANDERS NEVER SAID HE
WANTED TO TEXT PEOPLE IN THAT, IT IS PREPOSTEROUS.>>THEY SAY THE SAME THINGS AND
THEY SAY WHEN IT IS NOT TRUE THEY SAY WHY ARE YOU UNCIVIL? THINK ABOUT HOW MONSTROUSLY
STUPID THAT IS. SHE JUST SAYS IT WITH A STRAIGHT
FACE.>>LET’S GET THE SCANDINAVIAN
COUNTRIES BECAUSE SHE TALKS ABOUT HOW SHE SAYS HE WANTS US
TO BE LIKE THE SCANDINAVIAN COUNTRIES. HOW TERRIBLE. BUT ACTUALLY NOT. THEY ARE ACTUALLY MUCH BETTER
THAN US. FIRST LET’S START WITH LIFE
EXPECTANCY. DO AMERICANS LIVE LONGER LIVES
THAN PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN THOSE HORRIBLE SCANDINAVIAN
COUNTRIES. IF YOU COMPARES THE SCANDINAVIAN
COUNTRIES WE ARE LAST. THIS IS BASED ON THE WORLD
HEALTH ORGANIZATION. WHAT ABOUT GRADUATION RATES FOR
HIGH SCHOOL OR SECONDARY EDUCATION? FINLAND IS NUMBER
ONE, UNSURPRISING. DENMARK IS NUMBER TWO, NORWAY ñ
87% ñ UNITED STATES IS AT 83%. BUT IF YOU COMPARES TO OTHER
SCANDINAVIAN COUNTRIES, WE ARE NOT THE BEST.>>ONE QUICK NOTE ON FINLAND,
THEY DO NOT ALLOW FOR PRIVATE SCHOOLS. AND IN AMERICA ñ 99% GRADUATION
RATE, NOT ONLY ABOUT THEY TEST THE VERY BEST OUT OF ALL THE
COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD IN ALMOST EVERY CATEGORY. TURNS OUT PUBLIC SCHOOLS WORK. THOSE PUBLIC SCHOOLS ARE WHAT
MADE THIS COUNTRY GREAT.>>LET’S LOOK AT POVERTY RATES. WHEN IT COMES TO POVERTY ONLY
5.5% OF THE POPULATION IS LIVING IN POVERTY AND DENMARK. WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT, THE
UNITED STATES, 16.8%.>>BUT WOMEN LIKE THAT, THEY
DON’T CARE. THAT IS POOR PEOPLE. IF THEY ARE SUFFERING, SO WHAT? I
GET THAT PART. ONE LAST THING I LOVED ABOUT
YOUR APPEARANCE THERE IS THAT I KNOW THE REPUBLICAN STRATEGY AND
THEY TELL PEOPLE THAT GO ON TV THIS, FILIBUSTER. THOSE TV SEGMENTS ARE REALLY
SHORT. TALK FOR AS LONG AS YOU POSSIBLY
CAN SO JEFF WEINER GETS LESS TIME, THEY PROBABLY DIDN’T EVEN
TAKE YOU INTO ACCOUNT WHICH WAS A MISTAKE. THAT IS WHY IT IS
IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE ON THE LEFT TO BE STRONG AND SAY WE ARE
NOT GOING TO LET YOU GET AWAY WITH STUFF THAT IS NOT TRUE, AND
PROVABLY WRONG, AND HILARIOUS. SO THAT IS WHAT STRENGTH LOOKS
LIKE.

  1. One of the arguments I like to make with people that especially Republicans but don't want to change is this. The world is changing and times are changing if you don't change with them you're going to be left behind. Republicans by Nature being conservatives like they are and it's not an insult but they want to keep the status quo. They look to be safe. Unfortunately for them that's not going to be possible. you can't stop the world from moving forward. If you want to see a good example of people who did not want to change, wanted to keep things just the same look to the Middle East. At least that makes them think.

  2. Been watching a few of these videos and feel that maybe Cenk could take it down a notch or two… the overblown ironic laugh and the over the top sarcasm aren’t doing him any favors. He’s losing gravitas… not to say he shouldn’t keep facets of irony and sarcasm, just tone it down.

  3. Ana has no clue what socialism is. In theory, it's great. In practicality, it's terrible. In reality, it's an economic killer. You start taking money away from the rich, and dividing it evenly to the poor, so everyone has the same amount, where's the incentive to make more money than the next person? Let's see Ana answer that one.

  4. How does a country like the US have both a capitalist system, and a socialism government at the same time? Ana is off her rocker, if she thinks we can have it both ways.

  5. Read the democratic socialist website. They hate capitalism. You people are drooling idiots who dont research anything and just watch YouTube videos.

  6. When people make statements that contradict the facts, that doesn't always mean they are not doing their research. Sometimes it's because those individuals are spreading misinformation on purpose to mislead others. they often know what they are saying is not accurate, but they are willing to deal with that fact because they are trying to manipulate their listeners for their own gain. Lies are labeled as such for a reason.

  7. Capitalism will always be better the socialism. Some social programs are necessary but what people are proposing now is bullshit. We already spend 2/3 of anual budget on entitlement programs, and they want to keep adding more programs to the list, while also increasing immigration. We have multiple social programs already and as almost none are run as well as a private company can. People bitch about almost every social program because its poorly run and far more expensive then in the private sector, yet they want the government to run more. To me supporting this is like saying you need the government to be daddy because you cant take care of yourself. So instead of getting your shit together, you want the government to take money from other people, by force if necessary, to pay for you to go to school or whatever. its pathetic

  11. I don't care what name you call it, just do right by people. This is suppose to be a Christian country. Jesus said, " Do unto others as you would have done unto you." Where is that thinking in Government? All the politicians have good healthcare. You can't remain at the top, if you're not at the top when it comes to health and education, and MORALS!

  12. Is there something wrong with the notion of "the greatest good for the greatest number"? And, Cenk is spot on about the righties filibustering. As long as you're talking, you can't be wrong.

  13. Ana is great, but she is arguing for “social democracy”. I’m not being pedantic. “Democratic socialism” is not a capitalist worldview. It’s core view is that workers own the means of production. That doesn’t need to be through bureaucratic state enterprises like the USSR. But the mechanism of capitalist ownership of labour is not reconcilable with socialism. Capitalism is the thing all forms of socialism oppose. If you’re pro capitalist, but want social programming, you’re a “social democrat”.

  14. That's a dictatorship (Castro & others), that the type of government and president Mr Trump want. He absolutely loves Putin and Jong-Un, wants the same power and control.

  15. We don't actually have 'capitalism'. In a pure capitalist system, there is no government intervention. No bailouts, no 'too big to fail' companies, no special breaks for some companies, and no government intervention in markets, banking, finance, insurance, mortgages, medical care, etc. There is not now, nor has there ever been free market capitalism. What happens is those with money eventually come to control political processes and then distort political processes to their benefit. Once a certain amount of capital is accumulated, the temptation to capture political figures and processes is simply too great, and no politician is straighter than a dogs hind leg.

    Reply

  16. Also, inconveniently, there has never been true communism. The totalitarian governments that have been nominally communist were never organized along Karl Marx's original guidelines. Really, no society ever has been truly communist, nor truly capitalist as the two competing theories of human economic organization require the separation of government from commerce. In ideal communism, the worker owns the means of production, not the government. In capitalism, anyone who can owns the means of production, and anyone can own the means of production if he can accumulate enough capital. This theory requires a sound money system (no fiat currency and no debt monetization). Monetizing debt robs the frugal and rewards the profligate allowing poorly run businesses to continue to burn through other people's capital depriving those people of the opportunity to purchase failing businesses or pieces of failing businesses and run them. Everyone should read 'Das Kapital'. It lays out both pure capitalism, pure communism, and statist versions of communism and capitalism.

  17. Socialism.. communism.. America's a friggin oligarchy controlled by these one percenters who own 90% of all the money in America. They control the Federal reserve, manipulate the stock marked, decide if your job goes to a country with no environmental standards or a minimum wage. Capitalism is great if the capitalists don't control who becomes a capitalist. I recommend that everyone reads Requiem for The American dream by Noam Chomsky

  29. Same thing happens here in Brazil.
    People hear the word "social" and immediatly relates it to the right wing anti-communist propaganda even tho the social-democracy is in the capitalistic spectrum of political ideology.

    The people are alienated and the dabate is very poor.
    That's why we are falling into extremist governments lead by morons.

    I honestly gave up into discussing politics or even history with people around me ( a lot of brazilians believe the nazis were a left wing communist movement )…

    Today I just hope to live a happy life, away from stupid people, and not live enough to see the distopic future world we are creating where most people die of diarrhea or thirst because clean water will cost more than gold…

They are bringing the rat bucket around and I do not want to loose my turn, I'll go hungry. That is what happens when you have social programs, like the police and fire and Social security. Okay I am making fun, it's hard to tell, I know. So can we get rid of the police so I can stop eating rats? I cannot believe how stupid you are, if you think I am eating rats because of social programs.
