“Socialism has never worked!”

 

 

I found this at The David Pakman Show, via Facebook, but dude’s got a YouTube channel. The above vid is a good breakdown of the different forms of socialism and what socialist politics looks like in practice. As a socialist, myself, I find that most anti-socialism arguments against socialism are really not arguments at all. They rarely go very far beyond the cliche that “socialism has never worked!” or “socialism fails every time it’s tried!” But within the vast and growing void of capitalism’s economic and spiritual failures, a growing number of Americans are getting educated, especially the young, who are inheriting the worst of capitalism’s abuses, a shit show of social breakdowns and compromised and corrupted social institutions.

Writer. In the summers, I live and work in the incredible state of Alaska, in the bush community of McCarthy; I pass the winters in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. I'm working on a memoir-based nonfiction book on the American Dream. I blog, quite frequently, and I also have a novel in process, set in Alaska.
