Socialism does not lead to dictatorship. Great wealth gaps and disparities of power lead to dictatorship. In a perfect world people would contribute to charities. We live in an imperfect world. Why should the government take some of “your” money? Because you live in a society where you are protected and provided for. Right now the government subsidizes businesses and pumps money into the defense industry at a level which is positively obscene. Any government which does not provide basic medical care, housing, education, care for veterans and care for the elderly is a failed government ripe for revolution.
This lie, that capitalism, unrestrained capitalism, is good for the workers and middle class has been revealed as false. The very idea of working men and women opposing mandatory health care is just, well, astounding. Americans have been brainwashed for decades by the rich.
Rubeus Remus Potter. You were named after the only two people at Hogwarts who seemed to give shit about me, because come on who else would I name you after? A verbally abusive dickbag who was in love with my mum and gave me shit all my life and someone who convinced a bunch of children that they needed to be soldiers? What kind of awful aspirations would that make you end up having? Come on son I’m not an idiot…
