The overriding principle is that socialism only works until the haves are depleted by the have-nots. Then what?
The socialists don’t want to tell you what will happen, once the herd of cash cows discover that they are bankrupt (already), but they have plans, and if they told you now, it would spoil the surprise. (Shhh! Don’t wake the herd.) Like the Islamic State, they hate any insufficiently enslaved people, but without the”justification” of a formally recognized religion. Socialism is not pursued for its economic results, but for its psychological results: utterly irrespective of its physical outcome on its alleged beneficiaries, simply laboring in The Cause makes each socialist feel virtuous — truncated feedback, a religion without a god.
Observe Mexico, a socialist nation, but with almost no “middle class” (bourgeoisie) a vast underclass (proletariat), and a tiny handful of oligarchs who own practically everything worth owning, including the government — more billionaires per capita than the USSA. This is the condition into which “our” university-indoctrinated Soshies hope to complete converting America. The Constitution and Bill of Rights might eventually be formally replaced with other laws, but in the hands of an imperial Pretendsident willing to issue counter-constitutional orders, a purchased CONgress, and a complicit Extreme Court, and a distracted sheepizenry, the socialist ideal could be implemented long before the formal acknowledgement thereof. We’re almost there.
