“Under socialism we’d all be equally poor” Yeah, in one of the poorest countries on earth if you just immediately transferred to socialism, you’d all be equally poor. That’s why rapid industrialization was a thing. Shall I even mention the fact that every single socialist revolution took place in the poorest countries on earth? You honestly think ALL the wealth in our bourgeois society would simple vanish into thin air?
“The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money” This statement results from a complete and total lack of knowledge as to what socialism even IS. Socialism is NOT just taking money from the rich, it’s taking the MEANS OF CREATING WEALTH (means of production) from the property owning class that “owns” them, placing them under public ownership and democratic control by the workers and the general public.
