What It Means That Democrats Can’t Explain Difference Between Themselves and Socialists

What’s the difference between a modern Democrat and a socialist? If anyone would know, it should be the leading Democrat presidential candidate. Let’s ask her:

In a softball interview with MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, Democratic Party frontrunner Hillary Clinton vehemently denied she’s a socialist, but found herself unable to answer what the difference is between a Democrat and a socialist. …

Clinton joins Democratic Party Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz in being unable to explain the difference between a Democrat and a socialist.

Watch her flounder, even in an interview with a sympathetic host:

You can see why Shrillary will never agree to be interviewed by Mark Levin.

Bernie Sanders admits that he is a socialist, but Shrillary won’t because she is shrewd enough not to want to terrify voters.

What’s so scary about socialists? This time we’ll ask someone who will give us a straight answer — Philip Vander Elst at the Foundation for Economic Education:

According to The Black Book of Communism (1999), at least 94 million people were slaughtered by communist regimes during the twentieth century. This is a truly colossal figure, yet that’s the lowest estimate. Professor R. J. Rummel, in his landmark study, Death by Government (1996), puts the death toll from communism at over 105 million—and his detailed calculations do not include the human cost of communism in most of Eastern Europe or in Third World countries like Cuba and Mozambique. Even so, his figure is double the total number of casualties (military and civilian) killed on all sides during World War II.

As one of the Founding Fathers of oligarchical collectivism noted, “The goal of socialism is communism.”

The full horror of this totalitarian socialist holocaust cannot, of course, be adequately conveyed by these grim statistics. Behind them lies a desolate landscape of economic collapse, mass poverty, physical and mental torture, and broken lives and communities. In fact nothing illustrates the destructive impact of totalitarian socialism more vividly than the tsunami of refugees it has generated in every continent on which it has taken root. Between 1945 and 1990 over 29 million men, women, and children voted against communism with their feet in Asia, Africa, Europe, and Latin America (For details and sources see my book Idealism Without Illusions: A Foreign Policy for Freedom, 1989). Had it not been for the land mines, border guards, and barbed wire lining their frontiers, the world’s communist states would have been emptied of their populations long before the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

Yes, but Bernie Sanders calls himself a “democratic socialist.” That’s different. Or is it?

One-party rule, the secret police, the imprisonment and torture of dissidents, concentration camps, mass executions, the political indoctrination of the young, the persecution of religious minorities—all these horrors have been the inevitable result of that concentration and monopolization of power that invariably corrupts the ruling elites and bureaucracies of all full-blown socialist societies. As an eminent Russian-born political scientist, the late Tibor Szamuely, wrote a generation ago in a pamphlet that should be read by the citizens of every civilized democracy: “How could it be otherwise? . . . How can there be any freedom when one’s livelihood from cradle to grave depends totally upon the State, which can with one hand give and with the other take away?” (Socialism and Liberty, 1977).

Unfortunately, left-wing intellectuals and other critics of free enterprise have always been reluctant to acknowledge the totalitarian logic of socialism, wedded as they are to a benevolent vision of the State and the dream of using its power to create a more just society. Consequently, despite all the evidence to date, many of them still pursue the phantom of “democratic socialism,” believing that democratic institutions can be relied on to prevent socialism from degenerating into tyranny. The great classical-liberal thinkers of the nineteenth century, by contrast, harbored no such illusions. Every single one of them discerned the incompatibility of state socialism with the maintenance of free and democratic institutions. They did so, moreover, long before the advent of the socialist tyrannies of the twentieth century.

These classical liberals, or as they would be called now, right-wing extremists (John Stuart Mill, Joseph Mazzini, Frédéric Bastiat, et al.), predicted far in advance that socialism would result in poverty and tyranny. They even seemed to foresee that socialist governments would inflict unprecedented atrocities. For example, Herbert Spencer wrote this back in 1891:

The fanatical adherents of a social theory are capable of taking any measures, no matter how extreme, for carrying out their views: holding, like the merciless priesthoods of past times, that the end justifies the means. And when a general socialistic organization has been established, the vast, ramified, and consolidated body of those who direct its activities, using without check whatever coercion seems to them needful . . . [will exercise] a tyranny more gigantic and more terrible than any which the world has seen.

Our massive nuclear weapons arsenal was developed to protect us from socialism. But it cannot protect us from ignorance or foolishness, which is why the likes of Obama and Shrillary are permitted to push us by increments toward the communist goal.

    Socialism always ends in death and destruction but let’s try it again, eh? It’s a wrecking ball and devastates every Nation to the degree it is embraced – Amerikaners of today are dumbed down and ignorant of the history of socialism; this is what socialists are exploiting in their rise.

    Don’t forget it was Wall Street’s mega-elites and the international banking oligarchs that funded practically every socialist regime since the Bolshevik Revolution. See Antony C. Sutton’s excellent and thorough historical analysis. This is the next step in understanding what has happened and is happening; the elites are working every minute, every day creating a one world global socialist dictatorship that they will rule the planet by. They’ve been at this dream over 100 years.

    *sigh* Usually the ‘best’ new show at one point in the evening is Bill O’Reilly (BOR)…

    But last night was especially egregious in that BOR somehow managed to mislabel #Comrade Clinton simply because she had too much money or something.

    I could label Bill O’Reilly with various pejoratives but I’ll refrain from doing so..but the fact is that is not the criteria for whether someone is a Socialist.

    For reference this is the definition of the words:

    First off don’t fall for the Communist propaganda. It was the Union of Soviet SOCIALIST Republics. The small “c” communism, that none should have more than another, lasted about a week before the Communists used communism to cover for their socialist agenda.

    Let someone speaking before the Bolshevik dissembling explain socialism:

    “Socialism; a speech delivered in Faneuil hall, February 7th, 1903, by Frederic J. Stimson

    First, what is the best the socialists, in their writings, can offer us? What do the most optimistic of them say? That our subsistence will be guaranteed, while we work; that some of us, the best of us, may earn a surplus above what is actually necessary for our subsistence; and that surplus, like a good child, we may “keep to spend.” We may not use it to better our condition, we may not, if a fisherman, buy another boat with it, if a farmer, another field ; we may not invest it, or use it productively ; but we can spend it like the good child, on candy — on something we consume, or waste it, or throw it away.

    Could not the African slave do as much? In fact, is not this whole position exactly that of the negro slave? He, too, was guaranteed his sustenance; he, too, was allowed to keep and spend the extra money he made by working overtime; but he was not allowed to better his condition, to engage in trade, to invest it, to change his lot in life. Precisely what makes a slave is that he is allowed no use of productive capital to make wealth on his own account. The only difference is that under socialism, I may not be compelled to labor (I don’t even know as to that — socialists differ on the point), actually compelled, by the lash, or any other force than hunger. And the only other difference is that the negro slave was under the orders of one man, while the subject of socialism will be under the orders of a committee of ward heelers. You will say, the slave could not choose his master, but we shall elect the ward politician. So we do now. Will that help much? Suppose the man with a grievance didn’t vote for him?

  • Rotohammer

    believing that democratic institutions can be relied on to prevent socialism from degenerating into tyranny

    In fact, socialism is attracted to democratic societies because that’s where the capital is. Just like weeds are attracted to a well watered lawn. Liberals need to be continually hosed down with a strong concentration of Weed-Be-Getting-The-Hell-Out-Of-My-Yard.

    A reason why pure democracies are doomed to fail, especially if everyone gets to vote. As has been said many times, once people can vote themselves goodies from the public treasury, it’s all over. Just a matter of time. It sounds elitist, but I think it’s an absolute requirement for any kind of stable democratic republic: If you take more than you contribute to the public treasury, you don’t get to vote until you do. Period. You get all the other rights of citizenship (that none of us currently enjoy to the extent we are entitled under the Constitution, unless we are wealthy or connected). But you don’t get to vote.

  • J K Brown

    We will therefore conclude with the perhaps unforeseen result, that democracy, when crowned with power, seeks rather what it considers the well-being of the community than the liberty of the individual.

    Old George Putnam was fond of saying the difference between a
    socialist and a communist is that a socialist is a communist in a
    suit, and a communist is a socialist with a gun. What slays me is
    that the communist lesbian in the Mao Jacket is claiming to be
    a “Progressive Democrat,” which in this day and age means
    a “Communist Communist.”

    There is not a dimes worth of difference!

  • JeffersonSpinningInGrave

    Even that is a somewhat charitable view of things. Many will vote for their own narrow self interests, even if they know it is harmful for the community (or, I suppose, it wouldn’t even occur to many to wonder what is best for the community).

    Socialism is far more than just the ideology that society will be more equitable when we all live at the expense of everyone else. It is the smothering ideology that the only opinions that a person should have are those who are the opinions that society as a whole approves of. This is the hive-mind in action. Any thought that didn’t come from the hive-mind diminishes the power of the hive-mind. The socialist world view is that society will be more equitable when we each only think based on what everyone else is thinking. Socialists not only work at stealing all your material assets, they must also try to steal all your spiritual assets as well.

    Bonus quote:

    “The permanent lie becomes the only safe form of existence, in the same way as betrayal. Every wag of the tongue can be overheard by someone, every facial expression observed by someone. Therefore every word, if it does not have to be a direct lie, is nonetheless obliged not to contradict the general, common lie. There exists a collection of ready-made phrases, of labels, a selection of ready-made lies.”

    Socialism, social and economic doctrine that calls for public rather than private ownership or control of property and natural resources. According to the socialist view, individuals do not live or work in isolation but live in cooperation with one another. Furthermore, everything that people produce is in some sense a social product, and everyone who contributes to the production of a good is entitled to a share in it. Society as a whole, therefore, should own or at least control property for the benefit of all its members.
