As the name implies, socialism places people ahead of capital, working people as distinct from people that prosper off of other’s work. Relatively few people prosper off of other’s work, yet these few people have, in their hands, an inordinate amount of the world’s wealth. And these few people have, in their hands, the means to set the conditions under which the workers of the world must sustain themselves. You don’t have to be a fan of socialism to see that capitalism favors the billionaire (with trillionaires not far off) and that it is incapable of dealing with existing survival threats.

In the US we have Capitalism when it comes to holding the majority down in order to provide profits, but Socialism when it comes to lending a helping hand to corporations.


That, my friends, is the epitome of greed

Capitalism is a mental disease based on an utter misunderstanding of Charles Darwin. It causes us to store money in stock piles controlled by a handful of psychopaths (mostly). My analogy is like running an organic farm. For example, if you stockpile the compost in a few piles it begins to rot and stink and do no good. If you spread it around it fertilizes plants everywhere you spread it and makes them grow and flourish. Another example would be in education where you can have competition and cutthroat behavior, or cooperation and great success. I would cite Japan as one example of cooperation, at least in large measure. They have done more astounding things since World WarII than anyone could have imagined.

A tenet of capitalism is the use of others' money as capital. In my view, 'others' has expanded to include more and more of your money and my money via government subsidies, flat wages, inflation, higher rent, higher food prices, student debt et al. It seems to me that democratic socialism also includes the right of taxpayers (vs. wealthy tax dodgers, corporations that pay no taxes at all, a $100K income cap on Social Security contributions) to insist upon a return on our investment of taxes paid, such as rights to clean water and air, reliable social services, fair wages, affordable medical care, roads and public transportation, ...These are some of the things our taxes are to be paying for. So hopefully, for openers, a 'new way of thinking' includes grassroots willingness to take responsibility and count ourselves in, not out, and to actively insist that we receive wholesome returns on our investment of taxes, --since we're the ones paying them. While we don't get a say how our taxes are actually spent, maybe it's time for citizens to be clearer about receiving a return on our tax investments that benefit us.
