You know what I have always found interesting?

A.) How fervently our status quo has to be defended.

B.) How scared people are of adopting concepts of socialism, as has been done in pretty much all countries, including ours

Seriously, how often is the word "socialism" thrown around in the US over the past 10 years? It's the go-to word to fight any type of proposed progress to be made.

We should do something about economic inequality! - Nope, socialism.
We should do something about our health system! - Nope, socialism.
We should fix how our schools are funded! - Nope, socialism.
We should keep and expand social security! - Nope, socialism.
We should invest in 100% clean energy! - Nope, socialism
We should have postal banking! - Nope, socialism
We should spend a trillion dollars to develop a new fighter jet! - Hell yes!

Clean energy.... better schools.... cheaper healthcare.... economic equality... Etc are good things for a vast majority of people. Yet, here we are fighting tooth and nail to change ANYTHING. To change SOMETHING. And we can't get it done. I mean, we will eventually, but it shouldn't be this hard.

Marxism is not what you are talking about. You do not have to overturn a capitalistic democracy to see that people have rights and are treated fairly. I mean have you ever heard of "women suffrage." You think Marxist countries have wonderful race relations and equality for all? Give me a break.

Social programs is different than Marxism. Hugely different.
Marxism is evil
