Linked to pro-war propaganda/asylum “Mother Jones.” We’ve seen enough unhinged nonsense from MJ to conclude some linkage to covert intelligence, a la “Project Mockingbird.”

In February of last year, Mother Jones senior reporter and pro-war propagandist Shane Bauer publicly demanded for the popular blogging site Medium to ban anti-war journalists from its platform.

The offending piece:

4 Reasons Why The White Helmets Are A Front For War Propaganda

“1-They were created for advancing propaganda

2-Their members have been caught assisting in public executions and sympathizing with Islamist terrorists

3-Their leaders have also helped the group collaborate with terrorists

4-They’ve been shown to neglect their “humanitarian” duties so that they can advance propaganda”

Responding to this. Apparently, he’s so confident that he’s hiding the comments on Medium.

The answer is in the question. Socialism is an imbalance that hands the government too much power. You mindlessly phrased it in Marxist terms, “capitalism” versus “socialism,” as if the twentieth century never happened.

The problem is ignorance, ahistorical power grabs, running the whole ship aground. Those are for starters.

You use “socialism” and “democratic socialism” interchangeably. Your adherents lack intellectual rigor and trustworthiness to tackle the complex problems, thus eroding their credibility — and odds of succeeding.

Once you demonize the freedom to trade, the government becomes an unstoppable juggernaut. If the government seizes the “means of production” then the entire society is at the mercy of the government. This is some flavor of totalitarianism or creeping totalitarianism. The government cannot be entrusted with too much power, as the American founders wisely understood and planned for.

Labels matter. You just put up the Communist red flag
