What a Socialist Really Wants

Article:

What exactly is a socialist? You could spend all day studying encyclopedias and not settle anything. Using various definitions, you could probably prove that anybody is or isn't a socialist.

So let's talk to a socialist. Ignore the verbiage and look inside his head. When someone announces to the world, "I'm a socialist," what is that person thinking?

With this focus, everything becomes simpler. Socialists may not be able to claim experience, learning, smarts, or success. But they make up for all that by a boundless certitude about philosophical and political matters. It's as if they, albeit atheists, are guided by a divine vision.

What is the central assertion contained in that vision? Here, I believe, is what the self-proclaimed socialist is saying to the rest of us:

"You pathetic losers are clearly not qualified to run your own lives. Or if you think you are, you're probably in the grip of dangerous beliefs that need to be discarded. All in all, it would be better if you stayed out of the way and let experts manage your life. That would be I and my cronies."

That's it. "I'm a socialist" means "From now on, I'll be in charge, fortunately. You can take a hike."

What was the essence of Hillary Clinton's campaign? She seemed to think she had a right to take charge and order everyone else around. Saul Alinsky, her mentor, felt the same way. I suspect that Obama agreed with both of them.

Socialism and communism are often presented as scientifically derived theories about economics and politics. That's the pretentious academic surface. In day-to-day practical terms, however, our left-wing visionaries try to answer this question: who should run the world? Inevitable answer: They should.

Socialists are passionately concerned with making sure the right people have the power – that is, themselves.

Democracy, on the other hand, is all about distributing power and making sure the worst people don't get it. How do we know they are the worst people? Because they are obsessed with grabbing power and using it to stifle other people, an arrangement they call socialism or communism.

Eric Hoffer said it well: A man who’s own business is not worth minding will console himself by trying to mind yours.

It's encouraging to read a quote from Hoffer. He was a miracle and philosopher for the ages.
