  1. Re: What is socialism? (your opinion, not the dictionary definition)

    ^^I agree.

    I don't get trying to shoe horn "socialism" into what your (D) talking about, just shock factor?

    I'm sure your not trying to normalize the term and get people to think of it in a...
  2. Re: What is socialism? (your opinion, not the dictionary definition)

    Can you provide examples of that? (for example, why do you think Jaguars are socialist)?

    I do not see that as the case except perhaps with Ants/bees ("hive" living).

    If anything I see nature...
  3. Re: What is socialism? (your opinion, not the dictionary definition)

    I never thought of socialism in an animal context.. what you seem to be describing seems a lot more like volunteerism, since there is no central redistributionary structure.

    But even social...
  4. Re: What is socialism? (your opinion, not the dictionary definition)

    Absolutely, that's why my preferred (non-existent, for the most part) way to comport a society is through volunteerism... much like we had in the early days of the USA (the first 100 years or so);...
  5. Re: What is socialism? (your opinion, not the dictionary definition)

  8. Re: What is socialism? (your opinion, not the dictionary definition)

    comfort though?

    I disagree, please tell me where the basic right to comfort, or any of the other stuff he listed, exists in nature?

    You do not have a right to food, shelter, medicine, water or...
  9. Re: What is socialism? (your opinion, not the dictionary definition)

    Cool, so who do I steal that stuff from?



    Comfort?? basic comfort?



    So theft AND forced labor...
  10. Re: What is socialism? (your opinion, not the dictionary definition)

    "I'm here, give me ****"

    the only way socialism works is through theft; there is no other way... it is always immoral...
