The US fear of socialism

18 Jun


When someone says they are not for socialism but for freedom, I can’t help but think it’s just a misunderstanding. Stripped of all the emotional attachments, “socialism” is just another word for government services. What is the ratio of government spending to GDP? By that metric, the US economy is about 38% socialist and Western European countries range from 41% (UK) to 56% (France) socialist. You might think we should slide a bit to the right or to the left, but no serious person thinks that existence of Medicare or state universities or the Center for Disease Prevention deprives them of their freedom and should be abolished.

But, those who fear socialism say, what about Russia and Venezuela? Why do you want us to become like them? This is a straw man argument. I have never heard a democratic socialist say that they would prefer a Russian or Venezuelan system…

Creatively Political & Politically Creative

Scrolling through my Netflix feed I am amazed at the number of true crime tv shows that have emerged over the past year; a newly found obsession of the public that needs to be fed. I realized that this fascination for true crime that I’ve had for several years now, is seeming to slowly creep into the mainstream media. A middle-aged man waiting for a table at my favourite breakfast restaurant a few months back was gushing about the newly released Ted Bundy Confession Tapes, using the terms “captivating” and “addicting.” A feeling of awkwardness mixed with disgust washed over me as my own reactions of hate and anger towards the infamous serial killer clashed with his so called “captivating” feeling.
