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

Russia, Turkey, China denounce US interference in Venezuela

“We consider attempted usurpation of power in Venezuela as … a breach of the foundations of international law,” said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

 

“China always maintains the principle of non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries, opposing external intervention in Venezuelan domestic affairs, and calling for international society to create good conditions,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told local media.

Syria threatens to ‘strike Tel Aviv airport’ unless UNSC acts against Israel’s impunity

“Or is it required to draw the attention of the war-makers in this Council by exercising our legitimate right to defend ourself and respond to the Israeli aggression on Damascus International Civil Airport in the same way on Tel Aviv Airport?
–Syrian UN Ambassador

 

PS.

Imagine if the Syrians threatened Tel Aviv airport but then bombed the shit out of occupying Israeli troops in the Golan Heights, retaking the land that is supposed to be part of Syria? The Israelis are pretty sharp and probably have thought of that option.

I already responded:

John Oliver Attacks Third Parties

But there’s more I could say…

According to Reuters, the Pentagon has spent 8.5 trillion dollars since 1996, without ever completing a required annual audit.”
PBS

What’s that?

$8.5 TRILLION

Unaccounted for in the Pentagon, a perpetual, intractable problem that happens to be: BUSINESS AS USUAL.

The entire student debt of the United States is only $1.3 trillion, for comparison sake.

And corporate America demands you continue business as usual, while Green Party candidate–who can’t even get on a comedy interview segment–wants to reprioritize us away from a brutal murderous empire to something more sustainable and educated.
