The Truth About Socialism

we've heard a lot about socialism but what is that exactly in the most basic sense it's when a central government controls factories land and capital socialism is inherently oppressive and authoritarian it makes people dependent on their government for their every need still many Democrats and leftists such as Bernie Sanders Alexandria Acacio Cortes Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris supported shownu's a couple of other items on your policy agenda that you made very clear throughout Medicare for all Federal jobs guarantee and tuition free public universities and trade schools free everything sounds pretty great so what's the problem be drawn in by free health care freeze free tuition free everything well guess what nothing's free somebody's gonna have to pay for it and it's gonna be you either in higher taxes or in buying things that are gonna cost so much more and it's something that would destroy the fabric of our country and what our country was founded on the cost of socialism would require huge tax increases on every American and every American business for instance the national program to cover the tuition for college students would cost 807 billion dollars in taxpayer money and a single-payer health care system would cost a whopping 32 trillion dollars together those two programs alone would cost the country nearly thirty three trillion dollars that's 9 times the current federal budget and even if we could afford it socialism has failed wherever it has been tried the USSR China Cuba Vietnam North Korea Nicaragua is embalm way and Venezuela have all suffered as a result of socialism in Venezuela people today are facing widespread shortages of food and medicine inflation is at 1 million percent 90% of the population has fallen below the poverty line despite the country's 19 trillion dollars in groceries the reality is if it sounds too good to be true it probably is especially coming from a Democratic Socialist

  1. The definition of socialism provided is not good enough to cover also of it. It sounds something closer to communism (which is a very small bit of socialism)

  2. God Bless everybody in Venezuela and their families๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝโค๏ธโค๏ธ

  3. I didn't know fallacious and dystopic interpretations of socialism could be so relaxing by just putting in some upbeat music! Take, heed comrades, for they have given us the rope with which we will hang them!

  4. What a bunch of BS. Socialism is public ownership on the means of production. No private ownership allowed. Not a single Democrat is advocating that. This GOP propaganda is intentionally confusing social POLICIES (which btw 70% of Americans support) with Socialism. This clip is a LIE

  5. The list of the Happiest Countries in the world came out today. The US…..19th behind Norway, Sweden, Iceland…you know SOCIALIST HELLHOLES! Yeah.

  6. Trump has a long history of socialist healthcare support
    back in 2000: He said we must have universal healthcare in his 2000 book
    during the election: "everybody's got to be covered" " the governments going to pay for it" this is one of many.
    As President: He praised Canada's & Australia's healthcare both socialist.

    Now republicans are talking about paid leave & making laws to help addicts with tax payer money lol, What is this and where is the balanced budget all we see is massive debt – Don't think for a second republicans won't vote for a socialist since they voted for Trump.

  7. This is WAY too fast for a these baby killers (Democrats) You're going to have to slow this down and explain it way better

  8. That is Communism where the government owns and controls every thing, socialism is where the people own and control everything.

    WE THE PEOPLE of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence,promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity <that is socialism.

  9. Let's just ignore Denmark, Sweden, and Norway and focus on Lenin Socialism shall we? Scandinavian countries such as those I just mentioned employ both capitalism AND socialism in order to obtain a fair and financially viable economy. When democracy is paired with socialism to provide equal opportunity for its citizens, "a rising tide raises all boats" as Republicans like to say. Perhaps if we invested our money into programs based on a bigger return as well as cut costs in military spending we would be able to better afford socialism without raising taxes as drastically. However, more changes would need to be made as this still wouldn't be enough. Increasing taxes on the rich and implementing worker co-ops would save jobs (great example in the Mondragon Corporation), prevent those jobs from going overseas, and also provide more taxable income to provide for these programs. Roosevelt, the democrats, AND the republicans passed a bill during the great depression that taxed the richest Americans by over 90%, thus lowering the wage gap and allowing thousands of state-sponsored jobs to be created as well as fund the New Deal. However, since then, those income taxes have been lowered due to corporate and private interests to just around 30%. I suppose what I'm trying to say is: a) there are two kinds of socialism and you focused on the authoritarian one and b) socialism can work in conjunction with capitalism if funded properly, as seen by example in other non-Lenin socialist countries. I encourage any responses, as the reason I'm even watching this video is to understand the arguments for and against socialism.

  10. unbiased video, deep analysis, both perspectives criticized, my political decision is decided in under 2 minutes.

  11. I came to this country november 5th 1999. I had 5 dollars, landed in SFO with nothing but the muscles of my back and a sharp brain. Knew no one, no support and no help. Never went on welfare, food stamps or unemployment. I would rather die than take charity from strangers. Social darwinism, it's a dog eat dog world and when you learn this. You will wake up and smell the coffee. No free lunches as Marx wrote.

  12. Those who subscribe to the "free everything" from government {taxpayers actually} on the left don't realize they are playing into the devious "Cloward and Piven" strategy obama tried to use to "Fundamentally Transform" the country he so hated.

    The C&P strategy is to place so much financial burden on government it collapses and the terrorized public will demand government "do SOMETHING" and never care that the "SOMETHING" is to remove all Constitutional restraints on government. It is the ultimate socialist/communist Roach Motel. You check in but can never check out.

    Why would any sane person who loves their country want to give government, which can tax anything that moves, AND can actually print as much money as they want yet still are over $22 Trillion in debt? That level of stupidity defies all logic.

  13. Soo no, a centralized planned economy is not socialism it can be but not all ways . it can be a decentralized planned economy witch is normal done democratically Or it could be a market socialist economy in witch worker coops would control the economy ( so the government wouldnโ€™t)
    But thatโ€™s just the market side of it then you have a socialist ownership model this could be public, coop , Community or a combination of thereโ€™s ( there is more )

    In sum not all socialism is Stalin the best possible example of this imo is libertarian socialism .
    And a little p.s. taxโ€™s, regulation, stuff like that isnโ€™t socialism ( itโ€™s Often said by socialists but still ) itโ€™s closer to a social democracy

  14. Hahahahahaa… you guys believe this sht? Read a book or 500 books. Dont let Republicans tell you why something they are fundamentally against will not work. Both sides are foul. We need to raise up and break this outdated two party system. This fractured system.

  15. cuba and Venezuela is not socialism economy.
    communism and anti-Americanism cult government.

  16. On free college, why would we tax payers have government take over more education of our children, when public schools are doing such a poor job.

  17. Actually – socialism would only mean a tax on the richest people and some reasonable cuts to the military.

  18. This video is wrong, what this dude is explaining is Communism, where the government owns all of the commercial enterprises, but socialism is where the power is to the people, not the government, it is not oppressive, it encourages creativity, as work decides pay, not your greed. They say that all of the free things we get will be paid for by the taxes of the middle class, when in actuallity, it will be paid for by higher taxes on the elite and the one percent, then burden will not fall on the every day person, look at countries with universal healthcare and free tuition, they tax the rich and benfit the middle and lower classes. They say that in the US a single payer health system would cost too much, but look at other countries that have it, it is working just fine, and also Americans spend more on their expensive as hell private healthcare then they would in tax contribution to a single payer healthcare system. They say that socialist countries have all failed, when that is due to the american capitalists sanctioning them and making on sure that socialism wont work, and lots of the countries poiunted out are not and never have beeen socialist most are free market capitalist aka capitalistic social democracy. Venezuela is in trouble because their government is yes a socialist one, but the leader is a maniac, it is not due to socialism that they are in trouble, its du to nicholas maduro. This was written by a 15 year old so I hope you can understand how easy it is to debunk the lies being spread by the racist GOP. I am also from the UK, where we have great free taxpayer funded healthcare, that is so good that there are no parties or candidates that want to get rid of it because we like it so much, and also when a conservative government got rid of our tuition free university, it all went to shit and now everyone wants it back.
