"The private sector will always provide better services!"

It's true, the private sector will always provide better services. It's just that only the affluent can afford it.

Shouldn't ageisim be included under the "no bigotry" rule? There is no shortage of bootlicking, Millennial yuppies and plenty of Leftists over 50. We owe a lot of the current resurgence of interest in socialism to Bernie Sanders, who is 76 years old.

Come guys, I expect we to be better than this. Saying no one under 50 supports this shit is delusional.

It's not that no one supports it but rather that no age demographic other than +50 support capitalism by a +50% majority. Keep in mind the oldest of the millennial generation (1980-95) are almost in their 40s now.

Check. I'm 52. Wife is 45. Both leftists. Many friends in this same scenario.

So basically, all the time always.

In the Netherlands, right-wing parties let companies be in charge of the integration of immigrants, which of course is failing miserably. Then in the election, those parties say "We need to have fewer foreigners coming in because they do not adapt!" I am infuriated by that blatant creation of your own talking points and agenda.

People who receive food stamps yet have cell phones are also good scapegoats in a pinch.

My question is: Why do struggling Americans continually vote for politicians that are “good business men” when those same business men work only to benefit shareholders while squeezing American families for every penny they’ve got?

This isn’t a suspicious paid promotion at all

Also friendly reminder that things like GMOs are NOT bad, just because companies like Monsanto abuse them.

That’s just sad.

Just a friendly reminder that you cannot claim "GMOs are Bad" or "GMOs are not Bad" because all GMOs are different.

GMOs can be good or bad (or both.)

New GMOs will be different and could be very bad.

The moment I saw it, I took a screenshot. It’s just like really? You’re really gonna pay to promote this?

Remember kids, we may have caused climate change to explode, poverty to rapidly rise, and got rid of healthcare, but at least the rich don’t have to pay taxes!

Uhh, why should the rich pay taxes? They're rich, they're better than us. Of course we should pay their way..

The greater their wealth, the better their scraps and garbage will be for the rest of us..

Trickle down economics everyone!

In America, every solution poverty is on the table except actually paying workers more money.

Didn't Winston Churchill say that Americans will always do the right thing after exhausting all the other alternatives?

Sure they can live at the school. And the school can open a little store. And then they don't have to pay the teachers in u.s. dollars they can just pay them in school money.

/s

Can anyone else explain to me why taxing people who make more money than you is so unpopular? Especially when it's 1000x more money than you, not 1.5x.

I’ve never heard that, but that’s pretty accurate. Do you have the quote?

More like 'most of human history in a nutshell'. Capitalism just wraps it up in a new shiny coat. Underneath it's still exploiter vs exploited.

How many South American socialist governments does the CIA have to overthrow before you learn that communism is bad?

There normally isnt much love for Pol Pot on here, he had some agrarian nationalist pipedream that doesn't have much in common with Marxism. He was against heavy Industry and wanted everyone toiling in the fields, which is the exact opposite of steering towards the ideal of post-scarcity communism through automation.

Yeah but... What about Hillarys emails you fucking genocidal commie1111!!! /s

Teachers have some of the worst work to pay ratios. And, of course, they won't increase pay because that would mean an increase in qualified instructors. We can't have kids learning to think critically.

Let them live at work? Would they charge rent?

Feudalism. That's called feudalism.

Of course! Can't have them becoming too happy or relaxed.
