What is it with the NYT lately? Granted, they’ve never hidden their obvious progressive/Leftist bias but lately they’re going for broke. Stories on how Communism helped Chinese girls dream big and now this nugget on socialism?
Iowahawk nailed it with superb mockery:
Socialism is like a nude beach: sounds pretty good until you actually see it pic.twitter.com/YigBOkG8Lb

People always think nude beaches are gonna be super HAWT until they show up and realize that nudists come in all shapes, sizes, sexes and ages. And socialism is a lot like that, promises of free stuff from the government, making evil rich people pay … and then you realize how ugly Socialism is when it’s naked.
Or something like that.
The fantasy: beautiful, shapely young women.
The reality: hairy, fat guys.

this article was wild. it was like "if you redefine socialism as capitalism with safety net, socialism is great"

So basically if you pretend Socialism is Capitalism it’s a good thing and stuff.
Such intellectuals at the New York Times.
If they want socialism, they need to emigrate to #Berniezuela so they can Live The Dream.

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA.
THAT’S a good one.
Despite the decades of evidence, it baffles me why so many think socialism is still a good idea.

Nothing baffles us anymore.
We are forever cynical.
