"Let's see socialism for what it is. Not in the abstract, but in reality. Socialism is:

The taking of money (taxes) from some people who work for it and giving it to others who don't work for it. On a grand scale.
The vast expansion of freebies doled out by central government. In order to create and sustain dependence.
The government protection of favored persons and corporations, permitting them and aiding them to expand their fortunes without limit, regardless of what crimes they commit in the process. (Monsanto would be a fine example.)
The squeezing out of those who would compete with the favored persons and corporations.
The dictatorship by and for the very wealthy, pretending to be the servant of the masses.
The lie that the dictatorship is being run by the masses.
The gradual lowering of the standard of living for the overwhelming number of people.
The propaganda claiming socialism is the path to a better world for all.

In other words, socialism is a protection racket and a long con and a heartless system of elite control, posing as the greatest good.
It is just another form of top-down tyranny---as old as the hills."

    I'm going to give this one star simply because economic utility is left out, and John Mill the first socialist vehemently used them in conjunction. Like H2O without the right mixture it's not the right product.

    Yes, Rappoport should have included the other planks from the Communist Manifesto that the US has already implemented, like a (private) central bank that controls all industry and commerce.

    Socialism is: the environment altered to produce a human being, different circumstances then it's detractors who resemble nothing of the sort. Human beings are Fair, real, educated, dedicated, Stable independent, logical, loyal, intelligent, and kind.

    Sillik, do you really think your half-truths (lies), off topic rhetoric, redefinitions and misdirection word salad will influence an intelligent person educated as to individual sovereignty, inalienable rights, liberty and the laws of nature and of nature's God and the absolute evils of all applied socialism? Your accurate depiction of socialism is an environment to alter a producing human being. Socialism by design turns the free noble of the specie to slaves.

    Mike Norwalk: A clear, mentally healthy mind can easily observe that the present arrangement could not or can not possibly serve all or any of it participates.  It is incorporated in the present arrangement to monopolize, overwhelm, and devastate and could not possibly be operated by what could be labeled people. This present arrangemet which you support is brutal, savage, treacherous, and unprincipled. People, in the true, are naturally social, caring, concerned, courteous and a host of other positive qualities that can  only be brought to recognition through positive arrangement alterations.

    Sillik, I know it is beyond your mentally depreciated abilities but, if you could try at what ever capacity you have or are functioning under  please define in detail the present arrangement that I support ! ! !  Please be specific. Please do not use your normal off topic / misdirection word salad.

    Mike Norwalk: Simply crime is the present arrangement, and it has your full support unfortunately for the sane, me. Your the misdirection guy Mike calling the present arrangement glossy terms like capitalism and republicanism

     CRIME, CRIME, CRIME

    Sillik, you prove my point in spades once again. Your ad homonyms are hilarious  "FACT", I would NEVER call the present arrangement by terms like capitalism or republicanism. You are such a funny (mentally deranged) socialist  incapable of expressing the truth while trying to label those things that are you. lolololol  hahahaha
     -- Mike, Norwalk

    I'm sorry Mike, Norwalk what do you then call the present arrangement of our species?  I simply call it crime.

         Sillik, it is impossible to converse with you in any meaningful manner because you either lie, live in off topic / misdirection / misrepresentation, redefine words and concepts and embellish (from a god’s perspective) false narratives and incomprehensible word salad. So, for this exchange I will set certain the meaning of some words and phrases.

         Socialism is: any of various theories or systems of social organization in which property / labor ownership, religious belief and affiliation, producing and distributing goods is owned collectively, socially or by a centralized body politic - of which the statist authoritarian by means of capital punishment often plans and controls the economy. (Such as your no private banks)

         Socialism is a subcategory falling under a legal philosophy and system entitled ‘legal positivism’. By sufficient. substantive and definitive nomenclature, legal positivism is purely arbitrary. “An arbitrary law is one made by the legislator (in this case, it is the socialist god Sillik) simply because he wills it, and is not founded in the nature of things;” (Bouvier’s Law Dictionary) – Legal Positivism, as an applied ideology, is most often “used in opposition to natural law” (Bouvier’s Law Dictionary) (both at nature’s law and morality’s natural law). Legal positivism is a system of carnal gods creating law ex nihilo (out of nothing) - a demonic control application with a NON or nebulous foundation, lacking definite form or limits while expanding division, ignorance and a vagueness of heart, mind and soul.

         “The term arbitrary describes a course of action or a decision that is not based on reason or judgement but on personal will or discretion ⋯. In many instances, the term implies an element of bad faith, and it may be used synonymously with tyrannical or despotic.” (West’s Encyclopedia of American Law, ed 2)

         “A crime is an offense against a public law.” (Bouvier’s Law Dictionary)

         Sillik, you being the unique god of socialism, then sets the public law and anything contrary to socialism or its enforcement - to be a crime (by example: “the present arrangement of our species ⋯ I simply call it crime”).

    I personally have NO declaration concerning the present arrangement of our species - that would be far to broad. As to arranging associations between individual sovereigns that seek love, truth, inalienable rights and liberty through the laws of nature and of nature’s God and justice - I would call it noble. As to the worlds governments with their arrangements that enforce a statist theocracy with a heavy implementation of socialism, I wold call that a breach of nature.

    Mike Norwalk: I am the only individual on the planet you can speak with in a simple, reasonable, wholesome, sincere manner. None of my language has an ulterior motivation. You or any of your conventional buddies can't sit down unimpeded, eye to eye and have a honest conversation. Only I possess such gifts. 
     -- Fredrick William Sillik, Anytown

    Sillik, lolololol, hahahaha  you've proved my point once again ! ! ! It is not only impossible to converse with you in any meaningful manner (as for the reasons given above);  — PLUS —, because you are a very typical socialist, your entire language has an ulterior motive, is not simple, is not reasonable, is not wholesome, is not sincere and, your entire presentation is perverse from a carnal god's perspective.

    Excellent, Mike.  Clear as day.  The good intentions of socialists justify any abridgement of the rights of the people to compel them to do and say as they dictate.  Democratic Socialism ultimately  devolves into State-party rule and their creditors the central banks.  The US government has been completely coopted by the socialists under the banners of the Democrat and Republican parties giving the illusion of a choice.  Both have become supporters of de facto statist rule.  And yes, Fred, it is a crime  it is tyranny.

    A republican form of government, treating all people as having the natural rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, is the only form of government We The People have consented to. 

    If you follow the money, you will find that almost all the statutes being enacted by the government apply only to the beneficiaries of government largess.  Those rules do not apply to freemen.  Primarily all the rules around taxes are conditional upon those that use the fiat currency printed up by the Fed.  If you do not transact business with these promissory notes, you are not beholden to the terms of their use.

    Socialism is powered by this funny money system of theft and graft.  It could never survive without this bankers' trick.  Socialism is government by the Central Banks  why do you think they call themselves Governors?!  Believe you me, they govern!

    Fred, if you truly do believe you are the ONLY person to posses the gifts of speaking in a simple, reasonable, wholesome, sincere manner, I feel truly sorry for you.  How lonely it must be at the top.  A prophet is not without honor except within his own house and his own country, eh?

    It sounds more like you do not respect what anyone else has to say, nor do you listen.  Let me ask you, are you omniscient? Have you any short-comings?  Do you have any faults?  Is there no room for improvement for you?  We know what you think about everybody else...

    Let me also provide some feedback: your speech is not clear or  consistent, neither simple nor reasonable.  Your writing is full of misspellings, grammatically incorrect, repetitive.  Your arguments are full of logical fallacies.  If you are our Savior, because there is no one else on the planet with your 'gifts,' I'm afraid you are toothless, because even a socialist would find your speech difficult to understand.  Your 'gifts' of oratory and rhetoric are wanting.

    Fred, you are an individual, a special individual indeed.  With sincere intentions generally, only an incomplete view of how the world works and what is actually happening.  I don't think you are ready to save the world yet  you still have much more to learn about connecting with the other people in it first, if you really care about them.  The Truth sets one free, nothing else.  You will start reaching people when you tell it like it really is.

    Mr Archer: I do have faults, many: I don't take insults lightly as I should at times. I can be very venomous and course at times in my retributions when slighted. I lack patience in many instances. I can curse up a storm when things don't work out on my schedule and expectations.  I'm not as empathetic as I think I should be.  I don't stay as rational on my diagnosis of you and you conventional buddies. I want to describe your condition in strictly scientific terms, but your condition is such that you've had many years of pushing individual's buttons so I respond in quite harsh terms to the mentally ill when I should remain as a highly refined professional, etc, etc. I will leave you this closing verse, the mentally healthy individual tends to be their toughest critic.

    Additionally Mr Archer: To examine oneself and take personal inventory is necessary in the life of a human being. As I take account of my short comings I try to repair the shortages. This sets the stage for a whole host of new character flaws as I struggle up the evolutionary ladder. Nature will never allow perfection, but it will allow for a catagorical excellence. This is more reasonably desirable when all considerations are taken into account.

    Mr Archer: My ideas involve the development of the human species. This relies on a social consciousness. You and your conventional buddies call this "small talk." If the language does not explain an instant selfish return on your part the conversation is over. You conventional individuals are not educationally prepared for social responsibility and therefore not interested and ill equipped for substantive message exchange. You are too busy trying to "one up." Too busy trying to "score" the "win." To busy looking for a loser and in turn being a loser.
     -- Fredrick William Sillik, Anytown     
  •  
    Furthermore Mr Archer: You and your conventional buddies are just not associated with reality at all. You don't believe in anything and you fall for everything. You spy on others losing all realism of yourself or your victim. A fool keep tabs on others as you do, while the wise keep tabulations on themselves to maintain a sense of reality.  You spies move farther and farther from reality always making completely wrong conclusions of your victim because it's based on selfish bias as with all of your views. It a sure bet you will always, always be wrong.  The socially responsible decisions are based on the best interest of all, therefore will always be basically correct.
