“Now back in 1927 an American socialist, Norman Thomas, six times candidate for president on the Socialist Party ticket, said the American people would never vote for socialism. But he said under the name of liberalism the American people will adopt every fragment of the socialist program.”

Well, he was wrong. Today, 2019, a significant portion of the electorate would vote for socialism, given the choice. But the vote would be for socialism, the name, as opposed to socialism, the reality. They don’t know the reality, have never been taught the reality, don’t even suspect the reality. The reality is that, at some point, socialism demands totalitarianism, demands the death or imprisonment of dissenters, demands the subjugation of the individual to the all powerful State.
