Actually, Socialism IS When the Government Does Stuff

img 1604

Of course, that is too honest to be a real Karl Marx quote. It is a popular meme that is used to mock the allegedly misguided view of many who oppose socialism. It has been famously paraphrased by prominent socialist, Richard Wolff. “Socialism is when the government does stuff; and it's more socialism the more stuff it does; and if it does a real lot of stuff, it's communism.” These comments were made sarcastically, as socialists do not believe that “government doing stuff” accurately sums up their ideology. I intend to argue that it does. Let me be clear: I am not proposing an alternate...

https://youtu.be/MHnw5F1RmLE The Jimmy Dore type of leftist (the ones who are anti-state but also support social safety nets) could have most to everything they want in an anarchist society in the form of mutual aid societies. Those are the types of leftists that are worth reaching out to, unlike neoliberals. - Ace Archist (@Ace_Archist) Steven D. Grumbine is the Founder, President and CEO of Real Progressives.

Can Opportunism Ever Be Libertarian?

Recently, Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced that he would be banning any COVID-19 vaccine mandates, "including for private employers.” In response, Mises Institute Senior Fellow Bob Murphy, tweeted “For the record: I think it’s a mistake to applaud government bans on the rules a business can put in place regarding its clientele. All the warnings of slippery slope apply.” This argument is straightforward and completely logical. Any foundational understanding of libertarianism would tell one that government action is contrary to our goal—especially government action that takes away part...

8/4/21 Ford Fischer on the Death of Johnny Hurley, the Concealed Carrier Who Stopped a Mass Shooting

Independent journalist Ford Fischer tells the story of Johnny Hurley, a Colorado man who was killed by police after he stopped a mass shooting. Hurley came out of a store after seeing the shooter kill a police officer with a shotgun and then go back to his car to retrieve an AR-15. Hurley killed the shooter, preventing any further deaths, but was then shot by police officers, who claimed he had picked up the original shooter's rifle.

Dear Cenk Uygur, Supporting Government is Worse Than Supporting the Ku Klux Klan

dear cenk uygur, supporting government is worse than supporting the ku klux klan

https://youtu.be/ldmXyqAnbmI Mankind is a mixture of good and evil, of cooperative and criminal tendencies. In my view, the anarchist society is one which maximizes the tendencies for the good and the cooperative, while it minimizes both the opportunity and the moral legitimacy of the evil and the criminal. If the anarchist view is correct, and the State is indeed the great legalized and socially legitimated channel for all manner of antisocial crime — theft, oppression, mass murder — on a massive scale, then surely the abolition of such an engine of crime can do nothing but favor the...
