The Democratic Socialist Platform Echoes the Madness of the Khmer Rouge

You want to believe that such madness could never visit America. Yet, a cancer of identity politics, with its concurrent demands for social justice, continues to grow. A mindset of dehumanizing those who are not in your tribe is taking root in more people. After all, the “other” is just someone who is in the way of a more “just” society.

The problem with socialism is that it requires a class of people that know best how to run the economy. It also requires scapegoats or those they can justify taking from. As things get worse, more scapegoats get added to the list and it gets worse for them. Government should never be given the amount of power necessary to implement a socialist society, democratic or otherwise. Sooner or later it results in disaster.
