Kasparov Schools Socialist Sandersbots

"I'm enjoying the irony of American Sanders supporters lecturing me, a former Soviet citizen, on the glories of Socialism and what it really means! Socialism sounds great in speech soundbites and on Facebook, but please keep it there. In practice, it corrodes not only the economy but the human spirit itself, and the ambition and achievement that made modern capitalism possible and brought billions of people out of poverty. Talking about Socialism is a huge luxury, a luxury that was paid for by the successes of capitalism. Income inequality is a huge problem, absolutely. But the idea that the solution is more government, more regulation, more debt, and less risk is dangerously absurd."

Garry Kasparov. 

Not everything on Facebook is nonsense, huh.

I can't imagine under any scenario ever wanting to live under a socialist society or socialist regime. Worse, engaging in mental masturbation whereby I would wax poetic about it.

The idea of it strikes me as repugnant.

It's a valiant effort on Kasparov's part attempting to engage and educate Western idiots who possess, looks like, enough arrogance to try and explain to him how socialism 'works'.

I can but applaud him, re-post and offer support on our journey into bringing proper perspective to the potential evils of socialism or even communism.

I mean to put up with boobs like this:

From comments:
"Bill Smith. It's sad that a guy who could keep hundreds of chess moves in his head gets befuddled by words that sound the same.

USSR was socialist only in that the word suited the propaganda of the state capitalists who ran that nation as well as the propaganda of the private capitalists who claimed to be their enemies.
Sanders' positions are nothing approaching true socialism. His "Democratic Socialist" platform is just another word for free-market socialism in which businesses and industries thrive privately, but the safety net and access to education gets expanded reasonably enough that we stop resembling a lop-sided third-world cluster fuck. Free-market socialism: far preferable to the corporate socialism we've all been duped into supporting."

Always remember Bill, you're not insulated from being taken away to the gulags because you defended or cheered them on.

Other than that, you display precisely why ignorant people buy into this crap. What, with people like you so graciously educating the rest of us on this matter to remind of socialism's 'gentle' side.

The mental gymnastics is impressive. In a sad way.
