“Democratic Socialism” and “Social Justice”

“Democratic socialism” means rule by the mob (demos) for the purpose of expropriating the wealth and earnings of others. “Social justice” — the excuse for “democratic socialism” — is a slippery slogan that appeals to the envious and ignorant. It enables the power-mad to do great harm to the social and economic fabric of the nation.

The harm to the social fabric has been done, and probably can’t be undone. The economic fabric has suffered great but not irreversible harm, which can still be undone — but not if the central government succumbs to the siren call of “social justice” and the superficial appeal of “democratic socialism”.
