What Americans call socialism the rest of us would call mild social democracy.

Edit: But in recent years it's been gaining traction. Some might argue long overdue, or at least it's going to more average levels for world standards (and yes that includes the third world before someone points out me being a European).

Conserative Morality wrote:"It's not time yet" is a tactic used by reactionaries in every era. "It's not time for democracy, it's not time for capitalism, it's not time for emancipation." Of course it's not time. It's never time, not on its own. You make it time. If you're under fire in the no-man's land of WW1, you start digging a foxhole even if the ideal time would be when you *aren't* being bombarded, because once you wait for it to be 'time', other situations will need your attention, assuming you survive that long. If the fields aren't furrowed, plow them. If the iron is not hot, make it so. If society is not ready, change it.

The extent of most people's opinion of socialism here is "gubmint bad", but cheer on the military industrial complex and worship Wall Street.

As a wise man once said;
"Socialism... is when the government... DOES stuff."
I am the great THEODORE! Or Kali. You can call me Theodore or Kali.
My pronouns are she/they/he and also "stupid/idiot".
My gender and sexuality do not matter to you. I am gender and sexuality itself.
I consider myself a progressive-conservative anarcho-totalitarian fasco-socialist anti-theist theocrat :D
I am an average Teddy Roosevelt enjoyer.
I merely enjoy jesting from time to time.
I run some nations like The Grob, Atlantarctica, and other stuff

Oh we use a version of it. We privatize the earnings and socialize the losses.

dumbass who got the internet one day, Seals are the best animals and you can’t convince me otherwise. I hate anime, And dinosaurs are super cool :7 my favourite is Allosaurus/Apatosaurus who both lived in the Jurassic! I’m going to make this a dino area now because I’m fucking stupid. Did you know that Cryolophosaurus is one of the largest Antarctic dinosaurs. Some say that the Spinosaurus’s new look is dumb but you are wrong, I actually like it more! And no it wasn’t a quadruped.

Actually a favored method of Republicans in general.

Still the demos do it too.
