Re: Carnism as compared to Statism

Sanders wants a redistribution of wealth, right? The only way to do that is to massively confiscate the property from the rich to give it to the poor (whether or not the poor will actually get that property). Having high rates of taxation in order to redistribute money towards social programs isn't...

Re: Carnism as compared to Statism

Massive confiscation of the property, for example... Can you elaborate on what you mean by that? I mean, the Green New Deal, obviously. I have my problems with the Green New Deal, but I think it's a bit of a stretch to compare it to Mao's Great Leap Forward purely on the basis of them both being ma...

Re: Carnism as compared to Statism

Because their policies are rather similar to the policies of Maduro. Which policies of Maduro? Actually, the AOC policies are even more similar to the early catastrophic policies implemented by Mao (the Great Leap Forward). You know, using mass movement to carry out an economic change... Can you ex...

What if Bernie Sanders or Alexandria Ocasio Cortez come to power? America will end up like Venezuela, and it seems rather possible they will come to power.
Why do you believe that Bernie or AOC coming to power would lead to the United States becoming like Venezuela?

What the fuck?
Whining about tyranny, you'll never achieve anything with anarchy. I only keep you around because you shut their speech down.

Re: Cory Booker- Does He Have A Chance?

I meant that he was a libertarian, and libertarians aren't too progressive (Johnson is more progressive than most, but I don't think as progressive as Beld). Yes, but Johnson and most libertarians (with obvious exceptions, such as the likes of Arvin Vohra) are still clearly much more progressive th...

Re: Cory Booker- Does He Have A Chance?

I hope Will Beld gets the Republican nomination. I agree, but that's very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very unlikely. I know he was Gary "What is Aleppo?" Johnson's running mate,...

Re: Vs. Libertarian Socialist Rants thread

You implied it in the past saying how you hate liberals, so it only makes sense to think that you consider liberalism to be a less extreme form of progressivism (more right wing), and you said later in your post that liberalism is more limited. My viewpoint about liberalism has shifted from what I'...
