    De Blasio attributes this [radical] energy to a “socialistic impulse” in communities of people seeking “things to be planned in accordance” to their needs.


    You can use full quotes.

    When Bernie says something along these lines I believe him. I don't have to agree with his stance on many things, but...

    But De Blasio is full of shit. Empty words and empty gestures.

    The issue is not about "mad rich" people but about the middle class who have to work to get everything, while "weak and underprivileged" live in socialistic bliss - free or almost free housing, free or almost free utilities, food stamps, free internet (thank you Bill) and no will whatsoever to go out there and work.

    There is no reason to play devil's advocate on that one.

    It is all about de Blasio's EGO and legacy. Just like Vision Zero. He wants his name enshrined in the history of the city.

    When you included infrastructure you were referring to this part, right?

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, as you may have heard, made the biggest mistake any elite leftist can. He admitted what he really believes. Lamenting the inability of his government to plan every aspect of real estate in New York City “to determine which building goes where, how high it will be, who gets to live in it, what the rent will be,” de Blasio identified property rights as the great obstacle to his ambitions. “What’s been hardest,” he said, “is the way our legal system is structured to favor private property.”

    Thus my reply.

    There is an impulse, but it is not socialistic. It is tyrannical, and it is not new. This tyrannical impulse lives within all of us. The desire to set ourselves apart and write special rules for others is the dark side of human nature. It is that immutable impulse, which ever leads men and nations toward ruin, that our Founding Fathers set out to harness and neutralize with the Constitution. They knew no power on earth could turn people into angels. So they consciously devised a political system of divided government and dispersed powers, and cultivated an economic system of free market capitalism, anchored in equal individual property rights.

    De Blasio is absolutely right that the great threat to his ideological goals are private property and the rule of law that protects it. What really frustrates him is that in America, everyone else enjoys the same rights he does. That is the real story about the lament of the New York City mayor, and the reason that boomlet socialism is enjoying a surge on the left.

    Despite what “fake news” tells you, there is nothing populist about socialism. It has never empowered the “little guy.” In socialist systems, the little guy always ends up in bread lines or behind bars. Nor does it, as conservatives sometimes charge, mire everyone in equal misery. On the contrary, in socialist countries, the wealthy and the connected always make out like bandits. Literally. That is why, throughout history, it is always elites like de Blasio, O’Rourke, Ocasio Cortez, Elizabeth Warren, along with their allies in academia, entertainment industry, and the mainstream media, who lead the charge to push forward this disgraced ideology.

    If and when the revolution comes, they expect to be the ones calling the shots. They think they deserve to wield that power over the rest of us deplorables, bitterly clinging to the wrong side of history. Such self satisfied and power hungry elites are exactly the kind of people our Constitution set up to thwart.
    The frustration expressed by de Blasio is a positive outcome of that system, one we should all be eager to protect.

    True. Just look at Russia and other 14 independent nations.
    Really missed the part where he said he's mad that everyone else is enjoying life as much as he is?

    No one who knows what they're talking about cites the news for information regarding political systems.

    The dark desire to set ourselves apart and tell others how to live? Sounds like an uncle i have, named Sam.

    You're making a fool of yourself by acting like the news is the forum upon which your critics receive their information. Also, if you reference Russia as a socialist state and equate that to what people mean when they say that, then you are a fool and you probably shouldn't be given any power in deciding what happens either. Pick up a book you half-wit.

    Maybe when a good portion of the US screeches "SOCIALISM" at basic things like universal healthcare that leads people to start thinking, "hey, maybe socialism isn't so bad after all."

    So, congrats conservatives, you played yourselves.

    Did you pat yourself on the shoulder, oh mighty keyboard warrior???

    Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was exactly what it says in its official name.

    Socialist.

    And if people want to specify a certain flavor of socialism - Swedish, Cuban, Korean or Venezuelan, they should say so. Otherwise I am free to assume whatever I want.

    Did you ever ask yourself, if this so-called socialism was so good, why did Bulgaria, Romania, Hungary, Poland, Czechs/Slovaks, former Yugoslavian nations (not to mention East Germany) all run away from that failed experiment?

    Yes, and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea must truly be Democratic since it's in the official name.

    Of course you're free to assume whatever you want, if you want to make an ass out of yourself.

    Good point.
    Yet, late USSR was socialistic society.

    That's all you can say?

    Is there one "default" socialist choice/brand we adhere to on MMO-C?
