1 October 2017. Socialism Isn’t About “Taking”… It’s About “Giving”

________________________

Rightwing nutters such as Rod Dreher accuse socialists of being “takers”… “taking from the productive and giving to the lazy”. That’s utter and unrelieved bullshit and twaddle. Socialism is about “giving”… to give to all according to their needs… for all to give according to their ability. You can follow the early Christians, who held all goods in common, or you can follow American conservatives such as Rod Dreher, who defend greed and rapine. The choice is yours… choose wisely.
