A socialist, in democratic, capitalistic, western countries, is a person who was, more often than not, raised in a white, middle class family and adopts a socialistic political world view to vent the guilt felt by such an upbringing. This cathartic measure is a form of psychological flagellation and an attempt to identify with poorer people and countries. The socialist realizes that the hand they were dealt was not contingent on there being "special" but lucky.

The socialist then projects their insecurity's on the great father figure - the USA. In doing so they concentrate there hatred of America by villainizing and inventing "facts" and "events" while ignoring real problems outside of there scope of focus, revealing there motives to be far from objective.

The socialist will spend endless time, money and effort protesting tedious trivialities about the USA, such as trade laws or political meetings, and conveniently ignore tragedies occurring as they protest, such as massacres in Africa promoted by Muslims and Despots, or vicious sectarian rivalries across the Middle East. The socialist ignores these nasty facts about the world because they were not, in some way, connected to the USA.

The lack of any real connection to their “pet issues” and the USA does not always stop their wonderfully specious logic from drawing a connection. This also extends their putting a spin on historical events, or a complete revision of history itself. A good example of the above is the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, now, it appears, that this was an act of terrorism and imperialism, rather than an ugly act of a very ugly war.

A system toted by liberals who believe that collectivization and the equalization of all income and the destruction of capitalism and subsequently the United States and much of the Western World (European Union) will result in the end of racism, greed, suffering, poverty, and any other issue we have today.

1: Just because I'm not a brain surgion who invested decades of his life to learning shouldnt mean he should make more than me!

2: Just because I lived in my parents basement till I was 36 years old smokin dope with my high school buddies does'nt mean I should be denied the full spectrum of the benefits the stinking rich fucks get!

3:Eat the rich!

An ornate tool of individual identity erosion; a device that defies all moral conceptions and standards. In particular, our unique qualities, work ethic and personality are key to stable notions of humanity. With the loss of any of these, our humanity is called into question, leading to the devastating possbiility of everything we know of ourselves.
And the loss of self, courtesy of socialism, allowed for the exploitation of citizens in the inept utopia of 1984.

A form of government that forces the upper class to pay for everyone's health care, everyone's house, and everyone's crack.Sure it works out well at first, but after everyone realizes that the upper class can only handle so many taxes without becoming lower class themselves socialism becomes communism.And also socialist hospitals suck, I know from experience.After all no doctor wants to bust their ass for
the mediocre salary socialized health care workers get.
In socialism a doctor makes the same as the guy working at
