Yet some dingbats in the USA want more Democratic Socialism?
For an illustration of the social and economic catastrophes that socialism can bring on a nation, see the regime of Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela.

Democratic socialism can only work with legitimate democracy. A democracy where citizens elect laws instead of representatives would be more democratic than the corrupt republic we have today. An informed population is another must; intellectual property is a major barrier to an informed citizenry. Implementing an unconditional basic income, backed by sustainable automated infrastructure, controlled by a National Initiative System is a huge step in the right direction for democratic socialism. The national initiative system effectively transforms the people into the government, free of our incompetent "representatives". This way it is more difficult for the government to act against the interests if the people. Corrupt government is the strongest argument against socialism, the initiative system requires the citizens themselves to be corrupted for the government to act against their interests. Through the national initative system, citizens could hire strictly controlled and monitored agencies to carry out government work. Agencies and agents should have no extraordinary power, unless granted democratically through the initiative system. Antisocialists live in a bubble. The US has utilized socialist policies for centuries. . The post office, public roads & schools, the police, the military, and goverment ownership of land, are all products of socialist thinking. Check any economics textbooks, we live in a mixed economy today, part socialist, mostly capitalist. Capitalism can't function without publicly owned (socialist) institutions, such as courts and police, to protect property rights.

"Both mafia and government use force to get what they want. The amount of force is very comparable when the organizations are scaled to the same size. Government uses violence against a lot of people. Mafia also uses violence against a lot of people. They both also provide a small layer of legitimacy in the services that they provide."
Most people think that this is a rather simple comparison. They take all that they’ve learned through life and have made a clear distinction of good versus evil. (For all you anarchists out their, ...

Lilly-tarianism - worship of Lilly the Affenpinscher AKA Lilith, first wife of Adam, reincarnated as Affenpinscher,
In ancient civilizations, man's best friend was often man's most-worshipped divine being. We look at deities like Anubis, Bau, Fenrir, and more.

    Yeah I've got an Economics Degree, but Keynesianism was all the rage back then. I majored in economics to argue with the crazy professors. Keynesianism is nuts.
