You’re Socialist and You Don’t Even Know It

Cenk Uygur recently made a good point in reference to a study which showed that Americans overwhelmingly would prefer a quasi-socialist wealth and income distribution and concluded saying:“You’re Socialist and You Don’t Even Know It.” The point: even though this is what most of us want, many of us don’t realize it, continuing instead to chant the “free market” love song while actually not meaning it. This is a big reason why we must have more discussion about economic inequality. It gives those who haven’t thought things through a chance to do so.

The point I am highlighting here starts 4 minutes 40 seconds into the video clip:
