Democratic Socialist: To Be Clear, Democratic Socialists Are Working To ‘Overthrow Capitalism’
“Social democratic reforms like Medicare-for-all are, in the eyes of DSA, part of the long, uneven process of building that support, and eventually overthrowing capitalism.”
In case anyone didn’t know that already. How far are they willing to go to try and overthrow capitalism? Because I’m willing to defend it by any means necessary.
All socialists want to use the tools of capitalism because without them socialism wouldn’t work even for a very short period of time.
You can put lipstick on a Socialist, and call it a Democrat, but it’s still a Socialist. https://t.co/e8HMB3rdI5

In one of her growing list of viral interviews, Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez condemned America’s “hyper-capitalism” and predicted the end of the whole economic system. “So I do think right now we have this no holds barred, wild west hyper-capitalism,” she said. “What that means is profit at any cost. Capitalism has not always existed in the world and will not always exist in the world.”

Every socialist disaster starts with the lie “give us control of everything and we will fix all your problems” and ends with individuals being destroyed for the “greater good.” Socialism is a regression backwards from capitalism not a step beyond. https://t.co/6Hjm85u771
