    Words do have meanings. The term "socialism" means that the government controls the means of production. Using the term as a pejorative to describe government actions that one feels unnecessary simply obfuscates the meaning and evokes negative emotions, which, of course, is why the word is used inappropriately.

    Thanks. Can I quote that next time someone is ragging on my post about how "liberals" are so "misinformed" and etc.?

    Why do you keep setting up such foolish strawmen?

    Look, nobody is arguing against any possible form of collective action. What people object to when they complain about tendencies toward socialism are the more extreme examples of these things.

    Making polls with poorly thought-out gotchas regarding street lights and clean air doesn't prove your point, it just makes you sound like you don't understand the discussion that's going on around you.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
