"If one understands that Socialism is not a “share the wealth” program but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of super rich men promoting Socialism becomes no paradox at all. Instead it becomes logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs. Communism, or more accurately Socialism, is not a movement of the down-trodden masses but of the economic elite."
Gary Allen
(1936-86) American journalist

    Is this so hard to understand?  All those complicit benefit from the racket.  In the blame game, victimhood is currency.  Fame and influence are the prizes in a 'no holds barred' battle to impress upon the malleable minds of the masses their narrative, their branding, their authority, and ultimately their commands.

    A republican form of government based upon the natural rights of humankind is regulated by the People, who are the source of the government's power and can take it away.  In an authoritarian form of government, the government is superior and the people inferior, the rights of the people determined by the authorities.  The government regulates the people.

    Socialism is a democracy in which everything is up for vote, but the authorities still determine what is being voted on and what the choices are  as well as do the counting of the votes.  Authoritarianism whether from the Left or the Right is still Tyranny.  No matter how many people vote for authoritarianism, the dictates of tyranny have no lawful basis and we are not beholden to them.  Please note that government is a vehicle to tremendous power, wealth, and influence  no matter the form whether monarchy, socialist democracy, communist dictatorship, military dictatorship, or aristocratic oligarchy, you will never get the wealth out of government because that is THE game of wealth and power.  Better then we observe the American republican form with its distributed branches, and power inherent in the People so that no one can rule all.
