It cracks me up when I hear people in America articulate their fears of becoming So called Socialist -
We Americans adopted the welfare -warfare state 100 years ago .America is already “socialistic.” We steal from Peter and give to Paul via taxation. We also regulate and prohibit the peaceful behavior of individuals and their means of support: business.
This system operates world wide - more or less.
What’s sad is so many folks think they are “ Free” when in reality we are FKN slaves! Most folks salivate with joy when they see their Hero “rulers “ -who are in reality robbing , killing, jailing and impoverishing them. Disgusting in my opinion.
Americans are not alone with this problem. Dumbasses populate the planet worldwide, Laziness and Stupidity is universal.
Freedom to live your life as you please is being fully human.
