At its very best — meaning at its least awful — Socialism is economic illiteracy. At its worst it’s depraved, disgusting, revolting, stomach-turning horror.
Bernie Sanders says he’s a Socialist.
Bernie Sanders is either profoundly ignorant — inexcusable in a man in his position — or he’s a sadistic monster, indifferent to the suffering of others. Or a complete idiot. Don’t rule out: All three.
To say, “I’m a Socialist” is exactly the same thing as to say, “I’m a Nazi.” Remember, a Nazi says he’s a Socialist too! Bernie finds himself in just great company(1).
Worse: Bernie Sanders is really popular in the Democrat Party as a whole.
(1) That’s sarcasm.
