Another crock from Mr. Rock on socialism
My dear Rock:
Ms. Moen did not equate socialism to communism, you did.
She didn’t mention that socialists are responsible for the deaths of hundreds of millions of people. To the extent that they make Hitler look like an alter boy in comparison. She could have done that, but she didn’t.
She didn’t mention the suffering of the people of Venezuela or North Korea or Cuba which crush and kill their citizens when they disagree with them. She didn’t mention the pandemic, which spread around the world because of the CCP. Now she could have said all of that, but she didn’t, what she did say was this:
“Socialism is a top down political system that promotes dependence on government. It supports the control and redistribution of earnings, regulates labour and permeates labour unions encouraging them to support its mandate. It is deeply committed to controlling almost every aspect our lives, not in our names, but in the government’s. It is detrimental to charities by overtaxing the middle class to the point where they have little left to give, while it increases society’s dependence on the state. In the end it just succeeds in inhibiting the growth of free enterprise by controlling people’s lives and freedoms as it ensures its own security. History has shown us that eventually it drives society and the average person into an inevitable sense of apathy and mediocrity.”
That is what she said and that is entirely what you failed to address. Maybe you might want to try again?
