Quote# 77359

Except at the end of the day, socialism is about killing people in the name of evolution.

Just take a look at socialized medicine, for instance. What should really be called “Legalized murder.”

Socialism is bad. Period.

Well, this "socialized medicine" seems to be working better than your system... wait, you don't have a system.

Uh, what? Speaking as a European, I'd just like to say that socialized medicine does not involve killing anyone. It involves the opposite, actually. I love the NHS, and I don't think I'd be able to cope without free healthcare.

Double post. Sorry, everyone.

jamisings...You are an under-educated fuckwit. Please go back to school and learn what socialism is before you speak on it. In fact...just don't speak. Ever.

Ah, the Conservative solution to poverty. Deny the poor access to all basic services and simply let them die.

Speaking as a Brit whose life was saved by socialized medicine, I'd have to say that you have absolutely no idea what Socialism is.

If you really wanted to compare an economic system with evolution -- capitalism would have been much better. You know, social darwinism and survival of the fittest?

We've had "socialized medicine" for decades and decades, AND we have one of the highest life expectancies in the world. How do you explain that?

Socialism is about working together to get everyone a better life.
It has NOTHING to do with evolution. Evolution is biology, socialism is politics.

Don't knock socialism until you really know what it is. Try educating yourself with texts written both for socialism and against it.

You do realize that a capitalistic system where some people are able to afford medical care, and the rest are SOL and die resembles natural selection a great deal more than socialized medicine, don't you?

Besides, evolution is an "IS" not an "OUGHT." Read some Hume.

I now know that you do not have a fucking clue what the health reforms in the U.S. are about. You also do not know what socialism is.
Goddamnit, why are you & co. SO dumb?

Know what? Here in Finland, there's been a lot of hubbub lately about fake medical doctors who apparently got posts without any proper credentials. You'd think that's bad, right?

But the problem is, even these unqualified doctors were unable to get patients killed.

That's just a demonstration of how good our socialist health care is. Not even massive fuckups on part of hospital directors can bring it down. =)

Jamisings shouldn't complain against any evil socialist program. The way she trolls every comment page in every site of the cheezburger network (or by chance only the ones I happen to view, but what's the likehood?) I doubt she has a job. I know of a few other full time trolls, and one can wonder why obviously unemployed people are the most virulent conservatives.

"socialism is about killing people in the name of evolution."

I'm sorry I thought that was libertarianism, you know the one that advocates a fully free market where only the strong, smart and productive survive? You know an "evolutionary" process to improve mankind?

Huh?
socialism is about making sure that injured workers arent thown out into a back alley to die.
It's about making sure everyone gets heathcare when they need it.
It's about protecting the weakest members of the community from starvation, abuse, exploitation, etc.

Socialism means every child gets the opportunity to go to school, and every adult gets paid for the work they do.

What kind of bizzare world do they live in where medicine = murder?

We in Britain may complain endlessly about the NHS...but have you ever noticed no-one tries to get rid of it? Mostly it's a combination of the fact we like complaining but can't come up with another method that works better.

NHS: Not perfect, but it fucking works.

No, medical care for profit can be legalized murder. I know a cancer patient whose insurance company is telling him they won't pay for a chemo drug he needs, which could be the difference between a few more months or years of life and death for him, and I myself just got a bill for $700 for ten minutes in the emergency room with no tests or procedures--just a 3-5 minute discussion with a doctor, which is why many people don't go there when they need to. THAT is legalized murder.

"Except at the end of the day, socialism is about killing people in the name of evolution."

Do you even know what Socialism is?

"Just take a look at socialized medicine, for instance. What should really be called Legalized murder.""

Socialism and "socialized medicine" (note the small 's' there?) are not the same fucking thing, jackass. Much like Communism and communism are not the same things. I assume you also don't gather "communally" to attend "social" functions, nor do you "socialize" with anyone at anytime lest someone confuse you with one of them dirty Communist/Socialists you're so scared of, right?

"Socialism is bad. Period."

You're a moron. Exclamation point.

"Socialism is bad. Period."

So you are presumably against socialised law enforcement too, right? Everyone should just have guns and shoot it out in the streets to settle disputes. a return to mob-rule, lynchings, posses and kangaroo courts.

Forget I spoke, that's probably you're number one wet dream.

Yeah, I don't like public libraries, police, public education, or firemen either.

Ironically, the conservative approach is FAR more Darwinistic (as in social Darwinism, not Darwin's actual theory). If you can't afford healthcare, then tough shit, you don't get any.

"Socialism is bad. Period."

And the administration of George Dumbya Bush (who left office with one of the highest approval ratings) was the one that not only (for the first time in the US's history) balanced the budget, but created a trade surplus, only for such to be squandered in two illegal wars started by the successive president, and whose policies (or lack of such) created the recession we're experiencing today.

...oh yes, that's right, that was Bill Clinton. It's so easy to get them mixed up. Unlike the hard of thinking like jamisings. [/sarcasm]

And yet, Norway was effectively the only country to emerge out of this recession unscathed. A country which, along with Denmark, Sweden & Finland, has a socialised economy, with universal healthcare.

You were saying, jamisings?
