When Barky Obama proclaimed a "Fundamental Transformation of America" most took it as a cultural reference. They were correct. Just look at the fabric of America 10 year past. We are now bombarded with the homosexual lifestyle and interracial couples on television, and all out war on white males in advertising and media. But some took his statement differently.
The college educated of the Obama years were spoon fed the downside of capitalism. Sighting as the ideal alternative, European Democratic Socialism. Of course, the downside of this system was passed over. Sure, in the northern counties, European healthcare is quite good, as opposed to the British disaster of National Health Care we hear so much about.
Having grown up in a northern European country, I can assure you it is sufficient for it's people. What is glossed over is a system where the average citizen does not own their own home, few own cars unless for business, and have little say so where their children attend school. Outside of the well-off, the government is the landlord. Public transportation and education, primary and Higher Ed. are free. The average European lives quite well, with much more leisure time than we here in America. It has also created a culture easily controlled, through TAXES.
The economic landscape in America as seen by the left is horrifying to them. They control almost every aspect of our culture, but not our economic philosophy and practice. We are now endanger of that. With the rise of Bernie sanders as a legit presidential candidate in 2016, media promotion of AOC and her Black and Hispanic gal pals, the most recent, Candi CdeBac. Voters had better start listening closely at what these people are advocating.
CdeBaca, who is an avowed member of the Democratic Socialists Of America (the same communist organization that has blessed America with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) scored an upset in a runoff election after her appeal to the lowlifes, chiselers, and stoners who are drawn to promises of free stuff and state punishment of their oppressors. Her upset victory marks the most significant shift in Denver leadership in over 30 years.
“I don’t believe our current economic system actually works. Um, capitalism by design is extractive and in order to generate profit in a capitalist system, and I think that we’re in late phase capitalism and we know it doesn’t work and we have to move into something new.
I believe in community ownership of land, labor, resources and distribution of those resources , and whatever that morphs into is I think what will serve community the best and I’m excited to usher it in by any means necessary.”While the media largely glosses over these fanatical statements, if not outright glorifying them as in the case of AOC and voters remain tuned out, America is only a few elections away from sliding down the slope into a totalitarian style socialism. They are not advocating a European style democracy. And as no less an expert than Vlad Lenin once famously remarked, the goal of socialism is communism.
