Definition of Socialism

on September 27, 2010
Since this came up at Z-man’s blog, I thought I would post it at my blog.
The definition of socialism:
NOUN:
  1. Any of various theories or systems of social organization in which the means of producing and distributing goods is owned collectively or by a centralized government that often plans and controls the economy.
  2. The stage in Marxist-Leninist theory intermediate between capitalism and communism, in which collective ownership of the economy under the dictatorship of the proletariat has not yet been successfully achieved.
For some stupid reason, people who call themselves socialists think they can turn socialism into something different in America, like some sort of American-style socialism where we don’t lose our freedoms.  Well the definition of socialism doesn’t jive with that, it is about controlling people, and that is not freedom in any way, shape or form.
Whenever members of Congress pass a law, or makes some sort of “Pledge to America”, I want you to think of the US Constitution, then look at the definition of socialism above, and decide which of the two it seems to be more like.
