I don't think Sandy from the Bronx reads.

She FEELS. THATS ALL THAT MATTERS YOU HEARTLESS BASTARD.

Seriously, the media star making machine is practically sucking her dick right now. Her and the burka chick that married her brother.

they are critical of "authoritarian" communism such as the USSR.
They always gain power as populists and claim they are not totalitarian, but at the end of the day the only way to have a Socialist govenrment is totalitarianism.

... Marx was wrong about some things,
Yeah. Like the labor theory of value, for which they substitute the magic cargo theory of value.
and they are critical of "authoritarian" communism such as the USSR.
Yeah sure.

Bear in mind these "socialists" are millionaires funded by billionaires.

The authoritarianism is the whole point, and the rest is bullshit to get you to hold still for it.

I am beginning to suspect that she is the Democratic Sarah Palin.

For the Good of the Commonwealth, I hope she is not the Democratic Barbara Bachman.

It is heavily influenced by Marxism, which they freely admit, although they that Marx was wrong about some things, and they are critical of "authoritarian" communism such as the USSR.
I meant to comment on this earlier. I see others have beat me to it.

But I'd be curious how they think communism can possibly work without the "authority" to dispossess people of their property.

I recently watched a YouTube documentary about the Spanish Civil War. If their plan is anything like how the anarchists managed things in that war, I'll take the fascists.

It can't, which is why every time Socialism has been tried it leads to totalitarianism and violation of human rights on a massive scale.

I think it's a kind of magical thinking. Wishful thinking. Utopian ideas usually rest on a naive view of human nature.

Except in this case, it's rich people pushing it as a sneaky way to crush the middle class.

Exactly. Due process and checks and balances are not just something that were needed because the “other side” were assholes.

Ocasio-Cortez passed over for influential House committee
NY Post
WASHINGTON — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t get a seat on the powerful tax writing committee where she sought to push her progressive agenda of Medicare for All, free college tuition and a green new deal.

Instead, the open downstate New York slot on the House Ways and Means Committee went to a moderate Democrat, Long Island Rep. Tom Suozzi, a former CPA, attorney and county executive.

...
Analysis: Never mind any spin that it's because she is too "socialist". Someone with more seniority wanted it is all.
