Why has socialism become trendy among the democratic party?


Best Answer

Because the democrats don't understand what Socialism is. They think that all socialism is is the use of taxes for government services. The democrats don't realize that socialism is the take over of production from what would have been provided by private organizations, often said take over are done violently. They think public schools is socialism when it would only be socialism if it was illegal to have public schools or home schooling. The presence of competition is one of the factors that make it not socialism.


Socialism is no more trendy now than it was 50 years ago

because Communism has been shown to be a failure they need to hide their nasty spirit of anti-Americanism as just socialism to hide their actual goal.

Trump and the anachronistic/Paleolithic/no longer societally relevant GOP can take a bow for that one. The gap between the rich and the poor is worse than it’s ever been and the majority of Americans cannot survive anymore and they don’t care what you call it, “socialism” or anything else.....they just want a change., tired of watching their families suffer because they weren’t born wealthy, and it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to achieve that status. The ‘50s are over.......

Because the democrats don't understand what Socialism is. T


Young people are ignorant and haven't been taught the history, like nazi for instance.

Because this generation doesn’t know anything about socialism. Everything sounds good to them but in all reality socialism will not work in America

It's always been trendy to have no wisdom. Socialists are self destructive lemmings. Tha's all that needs to be said about Socialism.

Simply put: liberals believe lies. Garbage In Garbage out. In many cases they aren't even aware they are lying. They aren't stupid. It never pays to underestimate dangerous people. Their problem is: their world view is comprised of lies. When they act as if lies are the truth, it makes them appear schizophrenic.

All liberal thought, policy, values and beliefs are based on specific, fundamental, and very alluring lies. All liberal rhetoric is justification of those lies. There are no exceptions. OK, so this begs the question: What are the fundamental and alluring socialist/liberal lies?

Here are just a few. You can probably add to the list.
*The rich don't pay their fair share
*Taxing the rich, helps the poor.
*It's just a lump of tissue
* Man made (anthropogenic ) global warming
*God doesn't exist
*The Zero Sum Game Fallacy
*Bastiat's "Broken Window Fallacy
*Men can be women by an act of will

The list is very long but I suppose I have provided enough truth to trigger every liberal /Democrat/ Socialist/ Progressive/ Leftist ... on this forum. My work here is done.

They wish to exterminate millions of people again, they cycle through this phase pretty regularly. The last time was ww2.

To protect Social Security for the elderly and Medicare. Republicans want to steal the trust fund and use it to give the wealthy tax breaks.
