The problem with Socialist followers is they dont think things through or, if they have thought it through, they surely arent telling others what the plan will actually look like when its implemented.
Lets help the Socialists by doing the work for them.
The Socialist leaders clearly state, according to Democratic Left, Spring 2007, page 9:
Our goal as socialists is to abolish private ownership of the means of production.
Young people and easily manipulated adults are being told that the workers will take control of existing businesses by ejecting the owners and the workers will run the businesses as described by the young man in this video.
Think about that for a minute. Taking businesses that were started by someone else and putting the workers in charge of running them. Thus, the workers become the new owners.
When the workers become the new owners, what does that actually look like?
The workers will need to take the same kind of risks the previous owner took; theyll need to perform the same tasks and possess the same skill-set as that of the previous owner in order to keep the business running. True, they can change company policy and give themselves big fat raises, but they have to ensure the business remains profitable enough to pay all the workers, pay the taxes, the workers benefits, company utilities, material costs, distribution of their products, etc.
Socialists dont explain why they cant create their own businesses and allow all workers joint ownership, nor do they define how theyll resolve disputes among workers when their ideas differ. Perhaps they believe their collective minds have exactly the same thoughts and ideas. Wont they be surprised when they learn that each individual is unique and, by nature, has independent thought? Leaders always rise to the top and itll be the leaders who run the businesses and the workers will be managed by the leaders.
So how does this differ from Capitalism? It doesnt. The Socialists will own the businesses that they stole and theyll need to perform the same functions the previous owners performed in order to keep production flowing and ensure payroll, benefits and bills are paid and those with leadership skills will rise to the top.
The Socialists will become the Capitalists.
Discuss this with the Socialist-minded people you know so that they can understand. Once they see how this really plays out and what it really means, theres hope they will re-think participating in the protests being called for by the rich elites Union Leaders, Frances Fox Piven, Van Jones and other radical wealthy mouthpieces.
Its no secret that the radical left has been going after our youth. They know that if they deliver a message of oppression and oppressors, young people wont think it through because they dont yet have the experience and knowledge to do so. This makes young people a captive and easily manipulated audience and, ultimately, a powerful tool for the wealthy and well-organized radical left as they continue their path of destruction in America.
What the leaders of the radical left fail to tell their followers is their intention to transform America into a Socialist state which will enable them to institute a single authoritarian party (the wealthy liberal elite) who can then control state-owned means of production via a totalitarian system of government whereby the workers are enslaved and freedom is extinguished.
This is why they’re called “useful idiots”. They know little, understand less, and are easy to lie to and manipulate.
As to how it differs from “Capitalism”, the very word “capitalism” is a Marxist construct that has been inappropriately substituted for the Free Market. I don’t think I need to state the difference between Communism and Free Markets. Additionally, among the resources of capital, land, and labor, communists view all labor as a subset of capital; such a categorization is, of course, slavery.
The loser in Wisconsin that planned to band with his coworkers to take over his employer’s Noodles & Co. Restaurant was typical of this sort of stupidity.
They’ll think capitalists once Americans take our country back, get our money back and throw all of their goatsmellin’ socialist asses in prison.
There are more unmarked graves with socialism.
Capitalism is the unequal distribution of wealth.
Socialism is the equal distribution of misery.
The only companies that seem to survive that try and let the workers have a say in how the company runs are those companies whose clientele are willing to pay a premium believing that the company they shop at is more humanely run.
“.....communists view all labor as a subset of capital; such a categorization is, of course, slavery.”
Socialism - The road to Slavery. The last thing Social Elite want is an upward mobility by the “slaves”.
Only an idiot would write this. Socialism does not use profit as business measurement that defines the overarching goal of the corporation. Corporations will become stuck in quagmire as they try to figure out what their mission is. Corporations will become highly inneficient and our standard of living will nosedive.
REA was very unionized. REA was going through a rather unpleasant union-management contract negotiation and things weren't going well. REA was being hammered by UPS and the company was demanding concession from their union. Fat chance that; the union wouldn't budge. REA said this is our last, best, and final offer or we shutdown. The union rejected the offer and countered with an offer to buy REA — and it was accepted.
OK, now the new union owners were faced with the exact same problems of running the company as the old management was. They went back to the union brothers and sisters looking for concessions.
How many REA offices do you see today? None. The union couldn't run the company and REA went the way of the Dodo Bird.
