[box type=”bio”] Our longtime colleague and fellow leftie Brad Holhut has sent the following query we think is extremely important for us to contribute to, so please give it a whirl![/box]
Idea peculating… request help. I want a list of all the questions my fellow leftists and radicals … the anarchist… pinkos… socialists… communists get when talking to non-radical, non-political folks who actually take a moment to honestly ask what we mean by this and that and how do we explain this or that thing that they heard and think they know to be true.
What do you mean about exploitation? If I agree to a wage for the work then how is this exploitation?
Surplus Value? Never heard of it.
C’mon… human nature is evil…. or competitive… or greedy… you are just dreaming and fantasizing about some utopian and egalitarian society.
This is how it has always been and always will be.
Despots always rise to the top and take control. You have a nice idea on paper but it will never work.
But our Founding Fathers said…
But what about all the great innovations and advances that capitalism has brought to us?
But if we have socialism then nobody will work or fix the roads.
The communists killed – fill in the blank number – of people.
Commies want to take my property. I worked for this car and food for my family.
Socialism and Communism failed. End of story.
Look at Cuba. Do you want to live like that?
But they are burning down their own neighborhoods.
If they wouldn’t disobey the police, they wouldn’t get shot.
The list could go on and on… I’ve asked them all and heard them all and have pretty good answers and explanations for all.
I think it might be fun… instructive and would help me be a better agitator :)
— I really think this would be a good show topic… PLEASE Lefty Leftists… I need some more questions… what do you often hear?
