today's left seems to have forgotten the ills socialism inevitably and invariably bring
Socialism doesn't bring any ills as far as I am concerned. If we allow people to vote we should also allow people to manage their own workplace.
Gone are the days of revering the ideals that made this country great. Namely,
self reliance, personal responsibility,
How does socialism not allow that? Socialists are all about self-reliance and personal responsibility. We believe the worker and not the boss should be responsible for their own workplace.
Ah, yes, the family. Under socialism, you'll still have a family, you know.
god fearing christian ideals,
There are Christian socialists out there. I don't agree with them, but they exist.
Under anarchism there is no government. Don't you want that?
far less federal and far more local laws
You can still have that under socialism.
In short, this guy knows nothing about socialism.
