Should we jail socialists?: 8/2/2017 02:48:03

Recently Maduro jailed his opposition. I believe in mutual retaliation. i.e. If you want someone to take you seriously then you have to make an equal show of force. America forms NATO and in response USSR forms the Warsaw Pact.

Anything less only provokes your adversary.

So should the west jail (or execute) socialists before they jail (or execute) us?
However, jailing your opponents also plays into Linksy tactics.

Discuss.

There are socialists of different sorts.

Some would call old fashioned New Deal Democrats socialists.

Chesterton with his notions of Distributism was a socialist of sorts, though he properly shunned the label. He once said:

It may be said of Socialism, therefore, that its friends recommended it as increasing equality, while its foes resisted it as decreasing liberty... The compromise eventually made was one of the most interesting and even curious cases in history. It was decided to do everything that had ever been denounced in Socialism, and nothing that had ever been desired in it…we proceeded to prove that it was possible to sacrifice liberty without gaining equality….In short, people decided that it was impossible to achieve any of the good of Socialism, but they comforted themselves by achieving all the bad.


He said this before Britain established the National Health Service.

And then there are those socialists of the Marxist-lenist or of the Maoist sort who are something else entirely.

So which of these do you object to?

Maduro is a disaster.

I expect that many of your readers are unfamiliar with Venezuela's history, and its current crises.

The Socialist Worker surprised me by published a translation of an interview of Edgardo Lander that appeared in Spanish at La Diaria, an independent daily newspaper in Uruguay.

Edgardo Lander is a sociologist at the Universidad Central de Venezuela and has been called a social movement activist. His analysis of the current situation seems to be an honest one.

I wonder if Lander will be thrown in jail as well.

Maduro is a thug.

I don't know what the Venezuelan's are to do.

Remember, kids.

A single unit of World of Warcraft gold is worth more in dollars than a venezuelan Bolívar.

DON'T take the Venezuela route.

*Is that true? Can anybody check it if it's true? Like holy shit.*

Anyways, if you tried to jail socialists then you're a nazi simple as that. You try to jail opposition and oppress people who don't follow your ideology then you are no better than Hitler. What's next? Kill all socialists? You make me sick.

This type of thing seems to happen... whenever the government takes control of PRIVATE enterprises... there seems to be only one good that is sold (oil) and then whenever the price of oil goes down...

Oh wait, It's not Socialism's fault, it's evil USA's fault!
