8. Economics: Profit vs Prosperity | Democratic Socialism

 

Profit vs Prosperity

Respectively, wealth funneling vs the common good. Shared vs clawed resources have not so commonly understood effects: capitalists raiding society not only hurt the majority of people but also hurt the economy. The “nonprofitable” government, OTOH, lifts the economy putting the floor not only under people but also businesses.

Right-Wing Terrorism

Between 2008 and 2016 115 right-wing acts of domestic terrorism, and only three leftish ones. Ver y out of balance (and not at all surprising) and the right-wing violence has been on a rise since then.
