Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Q: What did Socialists use before candles?

A: Electricity

It's an old joke, sure. But it's no laughing matter. Just ask the people of Venezuela.
The socialist regime there nationalized the electricity sector a dozen years ago.
Today, blackouts in the once prosperous Latin American nation have become routine.
After 20 years of socialism, Venezuela is a failed state.

And that should surprise no one. Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny. Socialism is built on a fatal conceit. Modern socialists believe that the world has become so complex, that regular citizens can't manage things. We, and only we (say the socialists) are equipped to run things.

Rather than empower the common man, socialists believe in empowering the bureaucracy.
In their minds, bureaucrats will always make decisions based on science and dispassionate reason-and make sure those decisions are implemented and enforced efficiently.

It's an elitist, intellectually arrogant belief, and it is dangerous.

Just two short years after the end of the Obama administration's disastrous policies, America is one again thriving due to conservative solutions that have produced an historic surge in economic growth.

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Socialism can work MMC, it just needs a lot more checks and balances away from the administrators of it.

Difficult I know but what's good for everyone is good for you.

've yet to see a working model though

LOL. 🤡🌎

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

"it just needs a lot more checks and balances away from the administrators of it."

That's the opposite of centralization so it wouldn't really be socialism

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Yup!

LOL. 🤡🌎

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

So socialism only works when it's not socialism?

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

See!

I knew you'd get it

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

I find that Americans don't like words. They hate socialism…but enjoy things like police and fire departments…libraries and parks…social security and medicare…public education and transportation. They also tend to hate communists…with the exception of Jesus Christ.😉

Dogs love me because I'm CRAZY sniffable!

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

I tend to find that it's education which they fear.

Knowing what something is means that you are somehow aware of it and to them…well fuck that!

LOL. 🤡🌎

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

I mean…why educate yourself?😂

Dogs love me because I'm CRAZY sniffable!

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Because then you have to wear glasses

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Not yet! Just took my eye exam at the BMV…still gold pony boy👍😉

Dogs love me because I'm CRAZY sniffable!

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Education is a means to acceptance and damn those filthy *Insert whichever words you want here*

LOL. 🤡🌎

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Around here that word would be…jew?😂

Dogs love me because I'm CRAZY sniffable!

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

That group does tend to crop up more often than most for some reason

LOL. 🤡🌎

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

If there's one thing I hate it's racism. And if those filthy goat fucking Pakis don't shut up about the Jews I'm gonna lose it

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

The Pakistani people do at least provide some exceptionally good food and noticeable integration within the British culture though IF

Not to say that the Jewish people don't, it's just that it is nowhere near as noticeable as it is on the East and West coasts of the US in comparison.

LOL. 🤡🌎

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

The Jews definitely do not provide good food. I dated a Jewish girl once and all we ever ate was boiled brisket and the souls of newborn babies. It was terrible

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Pastrami isn't too bad

LOL. 🤡🌎

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

None of those things are examples of Socialism.

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Sure they are👍

Dogs love me because I'm CRAZY sniffable!

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

No they're not. They're government services paid for by our taxes.



Schrodinger's cat walks into a bar, and doesn't.

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Exactly 👍 and there are private options for all of them. The issue is that none can you opt out of paying for.

I would suggest that our system is not true capitalism or any other ism…but rather a hybridization of many…but I have a far less rigid view of how thing actually are👍

Dogs love me because I'm CRAZY sniffable!

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Still not socialism.



Schrodinger's cat walks into a bar, and doesn't.

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

No it can't. It never has worked JK, and it never will.



Schrodinger's cat walks into a bar, and doesn't.

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

It can and will MMC.

All we need is an AI overlord and it'll be in place forever

LOL. 🤡🌎

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Ahh, do yer dinger! And then we'll all be slaves forever, mate. Check out the film "Colossus, The Forbin Project".





PS The film is much better than the idiotic and melodramatic trailer.

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

AI asked to do what?

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

AI isn't asked of you cretin!

LOL. 🤡🌎

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

So you're advocating that an AI should be developed that's completely free to do as it pleases?

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Indeed

I think we should call it the Geopolitical Overseer Denizen.

It can keep us all safe

LOL. 🤡🌎

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Aren't you one of the Prometheus fans?

How do you programme something and make it free?

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Are you free?

LOL. 🤡🌎

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

No. Nor are you. We contain DNA.

Your prior 'cretin' remark makes me think you're an arrogant IT nerd, so I'm sure you understand the principle of coding.

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

I said cretin early to get a purposeful rise from you and, as predicted, it happened.

So yes; what is freedom?

LOL. 🤡🌎

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Except you haven't got a rise you've got a civil discussion.

Well, since you're the one saying it exists perhaps you should define it.

I can't define something I don't believe is possible.

Edit: You'll no doubt insist I try to though, so I'll say when something is free it's unrestrained, unbounded, limitless etc. If there are constraints upon an entity, it isn't free.

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

I would say that an AI could reprogram itself utilising the history of mankind to find the best definition of freedom available and govern people appropriately so that they may realise it.

But I doubt people want to take away thieves pretending to be in their best interests and so it might get a bit squirrely for a bit.

LOL. 🤡🌎

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Why would they govern beneficiently if they were completely free? In humans, the constraints, or settings, if you prefer, of guilt, honor, pride, love, fear, appetite for power, etc are what dictate the nature of a ruler.

The reason socialist leaders are so awful is because they rid themselves of guilt through virtue signalling, outlaw honor and pride, taking with them dignity and integrity, invalidate fear, and generally rally against human nature. Socialism is immoral because it's illogical.

I'm also still struggling to see how something can be programmed to be free, so I'd appreciate a little help understanding that too, if you don't mind.

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

The only biological freedom is death.

As for the AI, you'd have to ask that.

LOL. 🤡🌎

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Not existing is not freedom.

I won't hold my breath waiting for an entirely free AI, but I will look forward to eventually being shown how ignorant I've been here.

Thanks for the chat.

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

The Iron Lady! I love her!

She was the second greatest PM the UK ever had, only behind the great Winston Churchill! And she's one of my favorite leaders of all time.

Hear! Hear!

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

The driver behind socialism isn't a compassion for the poor it's a hatred of the rich.

For many the hatred is self-loathing because they know they don't deserve their wealth. Those people who earn their money through hard work are ALWAYS conservative.

Then there's the other kind of socialist, even more contemptible than the rich hating kind. They want to be generous with other people's money, other people's 'priviledge', other people's time and lives, but never their own. These are the virtue signallers, like Hillary, and they are the reason somebody like Trump could come to power.

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

And so much good democracy was for us..

Anyone between me and that stone dies

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Socialism isn't an alternative to democracy. It is an economic system. It's an alternative to capitalism

But democracy and capitalism are responsible for the comfy ways of life you and I enjoy so we can play tomb raider all day, Lara

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Comfy way of life? You've not been to romania😉

Dogs love me because I'm CRAZY sniffable!

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

I have. I stayed in a castle. All thanks to capitalism. Not sure what the problem is here

Re: Socialism is a rigid ideology that always ends in tyranny

Problem? Who has a problem?
