Though they may demonize socialism publicly, Capitalists depend on socialism more than anyone to subsidize their workforce. Taxpayers send billions in medicaid, housing assistance, and food stamps to poor employees who struggle to get by on Corporate America’s starvation wages. Industry captains could easily afford to take care of their workers, but instead rely on you, the taxpayer, to pick up the slack. This system that produces the worst income inequality in written human history is justified by demonizing alternative economic systems. We’re told that socialism leads to dictatorial government control, while capitalism produces the same tyranny through the Amazon monopoly. The ones who are supposed to be regulated by our government are the ones running it, and they’ve made sure we have socialism for the rich and austerity for everyone else. So it doesn’t matter whether we embrace socialism or not, because any economic system led by war hawks invariably produces totalitarianism.
