You've obviously not bothered to read the Democratic Socialist's website.  You need to take your time going through their objectives.  Like where they say they are not proponents of state control over the means of production ...... yet.

They are trying to get a foot in the door -- just enough so it doesn't close on them.  Once they achieve control using vague and dishonest narratives, they will do what all Socialist governments in the past have done:  implement whatever austere measures they want, get wealthy on the backs of others, and attempt to destroy anyone who tries to oppose them.

We weren't discussing any specific group just a general ideology. Hence my comment about broad statements.

That GROUP defined the IDEOLOGY you wanted to discuss.  But, deflection is a useful form of ignoring the topic when you know you're wrong.

Spin it how you wish, but facts are facts.  The website is the definitive source.

Socialism phobia: a condition that leaves sufferers unaware that the United States has enjoyed a capitalistic-socialistic form of government since before they were born. In the more severe cases of
socialism phobia, those saddled with the disorder have been observed, at the mention of the sword, to fly to their basement safe rooms where for hours they warily peer from behind floor-to-ceiling crates of survival rations until lured out by family members’ announcements that Tucker Carlson is coming on.

Most of your posts run on hot air interlaced with a heaping portion of methane! :D

I spent most of my working life as an engineer.
My job was to make complex things simple and they work.
at the lowest cost, in a reasonable time frame, reliable, and maintainable.
Socialism has none of those characteristics.
Capitalism as brutal as it is has all those characteristics, along with another one that Socialism abhors.

Freedom.

ideologies didn't create themselves.  If you can't discuss the facts around the topic, don't try to control the narrative as if the people pushing Democratic Socialism are irrelevant.

Sorry oh great Flapp, I did not know I was prohibited from talking about socialism separate from certain groups that push socialism. I didn't know you controlled the conversations here, my sincerest apologies.

After a whole week, THAT'S the best you could come up with?

Instead of trolling me, maybe you could post something about that actual topic.

I'll look forward to your next nugget of wisdom in another week when you again emerge from under your bridge.

It is all I need to come up with.

Me and another poster were discussing the general topic and you couldn't stand it apparently. For some unknown reason we had to talk about some specific organization just because you wanted it that way.
You didn't start the thread and you don't own the forum so perhaps you can guess where I would tell you to put your suggestion....Go ahead and ask if you can't figure it out.

Cool story, bro.

I don't know why I even bother when you're always a week or more behind the discussion.

Simple solution, don't put your foot in your mouth and then you don't have to try defending the indefensible whether 1 day or 1 week later.
