It all depends what the definitions are. Democratic Socialism, capitalism, and vulture capitalism with the ability to buy and install legislators, buy favorable legislation, and derail unfavorable, install right-wing judges, bypass and ignore the rule of law, the Common Good, and take for private profit the natural resources that belong to the public, NOT private corporate mechanisms like the fossil-fuel conglomerate! A sustainable future of the 99%.must be priority #1. The boogyman of “socialism” is branded as a threat by the PTB, when the real threat is fascism and the power of vast wealth they represent - the theft of wealth from a society, nation, and people to serve a minority of inter-connected co-conspirators and profiteers!
" The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism – ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power… Among us today a concentration of private power without equal in history is growing.” - FDR
