that the arguments against capitalism, put forward by socialists, are arguments against socialism?
So, really, socialists are against their own ideology.
Foreclosures since 2008:
Are not caused by mean banks, but by sadistic (Democrat, aka lefty) politicians that legally forced mortgage vendors to sell mortgages to primarily blacks that were not creditworthy. This quickly spiralled out of control tocollapse all the economies of the west/world.
is there any informed and not politically motivated person that still believes in that?
If the left had bothered to stop their resistance against more roads, the traffic jams could have been over half a century ago!
Don’t forget the amount of energy wasted on “defense”. Lots of mikitary exercises with lots of tanks, planes, helicopters belching out CO2; (I presume rockets and cannons – gun powder – belch out CO2 as well), all in a vain effort to keep up the pretense of being able to keep out the bad guys, which no army has ever managed to do, anywhere on earth. Dang, even in ye olden days, castles failed to defend against invaders. Never mind about national borders, which are much softer and bigger than castle walls.
I must admit, these wars weren’t all started by socialists (though all were started by politicians, which are almost all socialists anyway).
Bondage is economically unfeasible, so requires a the magical authority of the state, to round up escaped slaves; import new slaves. Those costs are not born by the slave owners, but they are socialized, meaning the entire society has to bear them, while they benefit only a single person/business.
