Socialism is about a reinterpreted fiefdom mentality with its old brand of rules; one ruling entity. If gone is Democracy (the individual entity choice) you become serfs - once again. When the state owns everything, that includes you - but you still don't know it; you were fooled. high taxes on the individual output, for BIG government. What a short-term ploy for benefits entails, is a long-term guise for the gullible public. America's health care is expensive, because it is overly regulated; lower the barriers for medicine and doctors. But, high standards are necessary. The barriers to lower prices needs competition; that's what lowers margins. Your economic vulnerability now, allows the socialist idea to seep into your mind; you want what others have, and are willing to take it if necessary...that is the totalitarian nature of the Left. If totalitarianism is the new norm; and freedom of speech and enterprise gone - the government tells you what you cannot say (Canada, UK, Eurozone). so, the next thing to go is wealth. Wealth of ideas and knowledge - notice how the Left rewrites history and destroys those ideas it dislikes...Mao or Stalin; who will starve or kill its enemies, and destroy literature... the Democrats are the party of the KKK - and socialism. never forget it. Republicans, the party of emancipation (freedom) and redemption. Slave plantation owners is the party of the Democrats. The Democrats rebranded ("New Deal"), are returning to their roots - ownership over people. A pig with lipstick. America was founded on freedom. Freedom of ideas - too important to forget. Remember individualism. But what went wrong, is the celebration of war - its in the national anthem; sung with such fondness; that must be challenged. War makes a nation poor. Wages are depressed, because the nation continually has to fund wars, rings up trade deficits, and spends excessively on defence...and now medicare. America doesn't do colonialism, but still behaves in that manner; its number of military bases in the hundreds - and the politicians are incompetent about it. they spend on a new stealth bomber, but already have the B2 - to update. nuclear submarines. 10+ super aircraft carriers. America spends on an F-35, when the F-22 is superior in every way - it needs an update. the communist political elites control everything as happened in the USSR - where the economy was a shambles; they too spent too much on Defence. A state-controlled everything never works. the fools. so now, Russia has another Fiefdom; where Putin rules...but, its economy once again, a shambles... But, there's China; one thing though - they endorse Capitalism, state owned enterprises...but the State owns everything. As a result, the Chinese will loot their own nation, and live in America! Thus, when you choose socialism/communism/fiefdom, know that what you are doing is shooting yourself in the foot; what people have been doing for centuries... the individual must always reign supreme over himself/herself, and a nation must reign supreme over itself (latter is forgotten but equally important; America First). notice, in the UK you no longer are guaranteed freedom of speech - you will be locked up for saying Islam is very bad; which it is, no doubt. as is the case, coming to Canada and Australia, where you dare not offend the militant Muslims. dare, I say they slaughtered whomever were their neighbors? - so, its coming... Capitalism requires moderation; taxation. Now, the 1% can pay more tax, this is true, but how much more? - they will just leave with their capital - that is the power of wealth and its allure... Where America mostly goes wrong is on its military spending habits - and socialism/welfare/citizenship rights ; any guarantees is one-sided - it is an entitlement; a 'right' - how does the nation benefit? - no one speaks for the long-term viability of a nation. That's why the oldest democracy (Greece) failed; its citizens were thinking only of themselves only - corrupt. its politicians, even more so.

Read the book "Imagine Living in a Socialist USA". It WILL change every skeptic's mind. I don't think Bernie has it all figured out, but he's a start in the right direction for humanity. Our corporate owned government is good at manipulating minds and continuing endless war with the military industrial complex for the sake of capitalism that favors the 1% at the expense of innocent lives worldwide. We sponsor genocide under the cloak of patriotism that has been forced fed through lies. Instead of our taxes going to funding, maintaining, and creating war...we could have it go to healthcare, tuition, and renewable energy. There's no need for us to have 4000 nuclear bombs. 1000 will suffice and still probably kill us all...and all it takes is a pissing match between opposing world leaders who have their bunkers, lol. We are living in a dystopian sci-fi movie and have been sold on it being the best and only way. For whom? We are at a time where varying forms of socialism, such as Democratic Socialism can finally work and benefit 100% of the people. Imagine living in a society that is truly fair and just. It would get us closer to World Peace ✌️ Also, people can't be blamed for their ignorance on the subject because the educational system is funded by certain interests that control the flow of information. Another must read is A People's History of the United States.

As the main man once said, "The goal of Socialism is Communism"- Vladimir Lenin. Don't forget that folks, this man doesn't care for the poor or the working class. He just hates the rich. And its not the billionaire he hates, he hates the small business owners that try to get by. When you declare you'll do all of these things and show no evidence you will or how you will even do it. Socialism is not supported by mainstream, it is blatent lies and anywhere that these ideas have been tried, only misery and death is the outcome. The ideas may seem great, but dont give everything to the state, any time the state has got involved with the individual, nothing good has came out of it. Please do some true research onto this man and watch him when hes debating with others. He is not a nice man, he despises anyone who is against him I used to think Bernie truly cared for your country, but he doesn't, he is a bitter person who wants to drag down those successful and put them on the same level as to those who have offered nothing to society. America is one of the few places left where tyranic ideologies havent taken over, do not fall into the inescapable trap that is Socialism.

America and all socialistic western countries are bankrupt. Socialism has one fault: The rules must be enforced by big brother. Once in power there is no way to remove the strong man. History says it all: Mao, Stalin, PoPot, Muslini. Combined they murdered 100 million people. Not everyone shpuld have a family or children. It is not a guarranteed right. Make competition illegal and the country will become uncompetitive. Simple common sense. Yes life is not fair or equal but manipulating the rules with false manmade ideas has significant consequences.

He is absolutely correct. Democratic socialism is already the mainstream.

Sanders inspires people to form unions and this tendency is growing and growing. Strong unions and progressive/democratic socialist governments are needed.

Hey everyone, I’m a liberal who is will most likely be voting for Bernie or warren next election. I support socialist policies and all but how can we as a society reduce the amount of welfare fraud that exists. Now I’ve heard from a lot of people that there’s a lot less fraud than people realize but I have seem quite a lot of fraud in my time and so have many people I know. I’d love to completely vote in these socialistic policies but how can I do this if I don’t have faith in americans to not steal from the system (hide money and not work and just collect all these benefits). Thanks you for your time and I’d like to hear some good responses

I see the US in the same situation as it was after the fall of Wall Street in 1929; during the past decades the bosses of Lonnie's and big companies have infiltrated in American politics to make laws useful for the pass. This, as result, caused the economic crisis of 2008, but, instead of punishing those who had caused the fall of the economy, politicians have been to scared to really take serious actions on them. What this country need is someone like Franklin D. Roosevelt who can fill the increasing wage gap between the top 1% and the rest of the other people. It would not be easy, but listening to Bernie Sanders actually gives me some hope.

Social democratic ideas* Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) want nationalization of the means of production: it's not something they're very vocal about these days in public, the candidates running for office who are affiliated with the DSA never say it, but it's their goal.

That isn't democratic socialism: that's social democracy. If by "northern europe" you're referring to Scandinavia, you're talking about capitalism with a strong welfare state. We agree on that. The issue here is not Europe and its welfare systems but how they're being used disingenuously in the US by the DSA. The DSA ( Democratic Socialists of America, it is a group: check it out) wants to dismantle capitalism. You can check their webpage and their constitution, you can google it: it's not made up. Even the Danish Prime Minister in 2016 came out to blast Bernie on his mischaracterization of Denmark.
jlrinc Vor Monat
Democratic Socialism is the predominant political system of Northern Europe. It has worked very well for them delivering some of the highest standards of living in the world. There has never been the slightest hint among these countries that they want to dismantle the capitalist base of their economies. This is a scare tact from the right but doesnt withstand even the smallest scrutiny.

"Democratic socialism" is redundant. Socialism by itself just means democratic control of the means of production. It means the employees of businesses are the same people as the owners of the businesses, the tenants of housing are the same people as the owners of that housing, in general that the people using the wealth are the people who own the wealth, instead of a class of non-working owners and a class of non-owning workers. Owner-operated businesses and owner-occupied housing are what socialism is all about, and anything that promotes that state of affairs is socialist to that extent. Government programs like free public health care and education don't have anything to do with socialism, except inasmuch as they help alleviate income inequality and so facilitate workers becoming owners.

Americans need to stop getting this confused, socialism is a stupid, crazy extremist ideology that has never worked. A social democracy, however, is something different entirely, it was countries like Australia, German, and all of Scandinavia have adopted. It's a social democracy Bernie wants to adopt and if you do your research you can see that in countries with these types of policies, quality of living is very high and overall wellbeing of the population is very high.

What Bernie doesn't say is how will all this be paid for.
jlrinc Vor Monat
+T Bone That is a good question. Ultimately we provide some sort of health coverage to everyone via emergency room visits. Because ER visits are so expensive allowing universal access to health care will reduce these costs too.. Remember our healthcare costs us twice as much as any other industrialized country and we have generally poor health when compared to others statistically. You may not like having to cover someone elses healthcare costs but its far more costly not to do so. Universal healthcare will take a large burden off of small businesses who must pay for the extra costs of its administration. The worker will see a rise in take home pay as his benefit is converted to salary and we can all relax a little knowing that we dont risk bankruptcy every time we get ill. This is a major drain on the economy. When productive assets such as our savings accounts and 401ks have to be sacrificed to a medical procedure investment suffers and so does the economy. There are so many other savings involved. Hospitals and doctors spend roughly 25% on administrative costs associated with negotiating with private insurers. Canada spends about 12%. That is money that could be spent on equipment and staff. Right now medicare is prohibited from bargaining with drug companies for lower prices, but we know this lowers costs. Public money is used to do basic research in universities but then this research is given free to drug companies with no accountability to the public for the cost of the drugs developed. You have drugs developed with public money that could save lives being priced to exorbitant levels that drug companies were allowed to patent for private profit. There is a $79 aids treatment in Africa that costs $39,000 here in America. All of this taxes us in ways that divert our wealth up to the top and away from productive uses.

What about the uninsured? Not every employer can provide health insurance.
jlrinc Vor Monat
Trump is proposing 700 billion for nest years military budget. The best estimate is about 70 billion for free education. Universal Healthcare will not only pay for itself but should put money in your pocket. Heres why.Americans pay twice as much as every other industrialized nation for healthcare despite the poor results. Your employer pays a portion of your health care as a benefit for you. You pay a portion yourself. With universal health care the part of the health care you have deducted from your paycheck would be paid instead as a tax to cover the cost. Your employer would convert his contribution to your wages since in reality that is what a benefit is. In other words Your wages would go up by the amount of your employers contribution to health insurance for you, He would lose the administrative costs associated with processing fees and so be more profitable. Your contribution stay the same but you'd see an increase in your salary and you have better healthcare. The reason costs go up with Obamacare is because it did nothing to address the underlying problems of private insurance but doubled down on it. It is a giveaway to the very corporations that caused the problems in the first place.

It's by no means an unfair criticism on Colbert's part to point out that one can indeed support regulated Capitalism combined with some measure of a Welfare State and not call oneself a “socialist”, simply for the fact that it's not actually what Socialism means. Though I do think it's good that Sanders has started some really good national conversations regarding the need to democratize the economy and redirect much of the wealth created in the service of elevating the conditions of the poor and Middle Class, I vehemently dislike this long-running tendency on the part of Sanders' supporters to redefine Socialism as basically anything Bernie says! This is especially peevish since what they're really supporting is, at best, Social Democracy in it's current reformist incarnation, although I would largely define many of them as Social Liberals. For those interested in Social Democracy, I'd suggest this reading list as a starting point: “The Workingman's Programme”, by Ferdinand Lassalle , “German Socialism and Ferdinand Lassalle”, by William Harbutt Dawson, and “Evolutionary Socialism”, by Eduard Bernstein. archive.org/details/workingmansprogr00lassiala archive.org/details/cu31924002265407 archive.org/details/cu31924002311557 And for an introduction to Social Liberal thought: “The Labour Movement” and “The Elements of Social Justice”, by L.T.

Bernie is wrong. He's not a democratic socialist, he's a social democrat (and so is AOC). He confused the terms. But now it's much too late to correct things, the only choice is to go with it and perpetuate the confusion. Anyway, as long as people understand his actual policies, he'll be fine.

Well, some of the things he wants to do are: increasing the minimum wage, implementing single-payer healthcare, and making public colleges tuition-free. These measures would improve equality of opportunity and welfare. As for taking resources by force, it's called taxes; pretty much every country does that. He just wants to change some rates and close some loopholes (e.g. making the richest people and corporations pay at least a similar percentage of their income as their secretaries, if not a bit more), and change the way the money is allocated - less for wars and big corporations, more for the people.

Improved social equality of opportunity and welfare within a capitalist system, please define? I don't think anyone has the moral right to take resources from anyone else by force, even if you justify it in terms of inequality, What gives bernie the right to be benevolent with other peoples money?

Nope, he's not advocating for the social ownership of the means of production. He just wants to improve social equality of opportunity and welfare within a capitalist system, like they do in many European countries.

Neo-socialism is foolish. Socialists of old where all pro gun. They knew that in order to successfully resist, you had to be armed. The socialists of today would make Marx vomit. Today's socialism wants to create a society that is completely reliant upon gov, without having a right to bare arms. How do they expect to keep the gov in check after the gov has disarmed the population? They want to create a slaughterhouse that fattens up the cattle before it's slaughtered

Nobody wants to disarm the public. The fact is that We have way too much gun Violence in this country and like Australia We need to take some action to address this crisis. There is abig difference between owning a hunting rifle or a handgun for personal protection and owning a large clip semi automatic assault rifle.Just some common sense regulation to help put a stop to the violence. America is a nation of hunters and sportsmen, nobody wants to change that but I dont want to keep waking up to school shootings and finding out the gun was obtained from a gun show and have the politicians keep saying "lets stop politicizing this' which is code for "I get a lot of scratch from the NRA"

American socialism describes the standard we already have in most European country’s. Sanders just wants to finally catch up to the other western world country’s because right now the quality of life in America is far behind most western world country’s.

No matter how many people die, no matter how many take to the streets, no matter who you vote on. It is all meaningless and a distraction if you lot do not reform your voting system so that it allows for multiple political parties.

It would be fantastic and refreshing if Sanders ran and won in 2020 (God bless his health) but my fear is that by then the US will have destroyed the last flimsy vestiges of it's threadbare democracy and he will be stopped through methods fair or foul.....it's not as through US presidential elections haven't been rigged before. I hope and pray I'm wrong.
