Let’s be clear. When this author claims we should be differentiating between socialism and fascism, it’s pretty much just semantics. Naziism was a form of socialism. Even Nazis said this. It’s just socialism with a heightened level of nationalism. Both are entirely authoritarian. Communism and Naziism are nearly the same thing. The amount of control government has over business in Nazi Germany was almost the same concept as communist nations that effectively own and control all major businesses and industries. And the results are the same.
The weird thing is that this author is saying that what Democrats support isn’t socialism, i.e. it’s a mislabel and the author is attempting to distance himself from the label. Fine. But what you all want is true socialism anyway! You want government to control the education, energy, healthcare and transportation sectors. You’d be fine with a unified national education platform, socialized medicine, and a government controlled energy policy of 100% select “renewable energy” managed solely by government jobs, and 100% public transportation.
Since none of these articles ever want to come up with a price tag (though some reports put it at ~$90 trillion), please explain to me:
- How we’re going to pay for such a large cost
- How this won’t turn into the same results we’ve seen in every other truly socialist country the world over
