Sam Harris: The Self is an Illusion

There is difference between a Socialistic Democracy (which believes in a balance between satisfying capitalistic greed with the people's socialistic needs) and a Socialist Dictatorship.

In a socialistic democracy, the government doesn't "take over" private companies and privatize them, but believe that essential public services should still be run by the state elected governments rather than for-profit companies. Socialistic democracies are not against capitalistic but do not treat it as an absolute in itself, but rather, a tool to enable social-programs that is operated purely for the interest and demands and needs of the people. Socialistic democracies believes socialistic concerns of the people takes priority over an absolutely free market. In a totally free market that is unregulated, those with the most resources can eventually rig the system such that it is no longer really a free market anymore, and workers and the environment gets exploited for maximum profit at any cost.

The problem with some of these so-called "socialist states" is with it being a Dictatorship. Taxation to maintain the state run fire departments, police, public infrastructures such as electricity, water and roads, social security, single payer option health care, regulation of companies from polluting our drinking water, and so on, are what socialistic democracy is about. The fight for minimum wage and implementing policies for the interest of the people and workers rather than those of mega banks and corporations is democratic socialism.

As for China, they are not a communist country anymore, but have devolved into a capitalistic fascist dictatorship pretending to be working for the people (i.e. socialism) so that the politicians at the very top can hold on to their absolute power with the people supporting their tyrannical masters/emperor-Xi.

"SJW
Social Justice Warrior. A pejorative term for an individual who repeatedly and vehemently engages in arguments on social justice on the Internet, often in a shallow or not well-thought-out way, for the purpose of raising their own personal reputation. A social justice warrior, or SJW, does not necessarily strongly believe all that they say, or even care about the groups they are fighting on behalf of. They typically repeat points from whoever is the most popular blogger or commenter of the moment, hoping that they will "get SJ points" and become popular in return. They are very sure to adopt stances that are "correct" in their social circle.

The SJW's favorite activity of all is to dogpile. Their favorite websites to frequent are Livejournal and Tumblr. They do not have relevant favorite real-world places, because SJWs are primarily civil rights activists only online."

SJW Ben Affleck shows why it is pointless arguing with a virtue signaling radical Social Justice Warrior.

Corperations are not people, they are robots.
Dogs are people!

America is plagued with an epidemic
of the Dunning-Kruger Effect.
D-K affects nearly every family.

You have to know, the real Dunning-Kruger
effects fake liberals to make them
think that they know everything.
No matter how many facts you
show them, they don't learn or accept.

Too many people are brainwashed into
believing their political party is benevolent.
While both are deep state knights & pawns.

We need outsiders like Donald Trump.

Do not confuse the Dunning-Kruger Effect
with the Dumb-Krueger Effect, started by
pseudo-psychologist to attack MAGAites.

The cure for Dumb-Krueger is knowlege!
May the facts be with you.
