Gates pointed out that the current increase in pro-socialist rhetoric in the United States does not really refer to socialism according to any conventional definition of the word. "Socialism used to mean that a State controlled the means of production", and, according to Gates, "many people here who promote socialism do not define it in that classical way." "The majority do not argue against capitalism ... What they actually want is capitalism with a better level of taxation," says Gates. The federal employment guarantee of AOC, for example, would consist of a reference standard for employment that would include a minimum wage of $15 linked to inflation, full medical care, and paid leave for sickness and children. (That) is capitalism with a strong social safety net.
Many other billionaires agree, though not all. Socialism and Communism has been drug through the pig pen in an effort to prevent change for the better. If we can't even try to understand each other this argument will never be settled. Just more relentless stupidity firmly entrenched fools claiming victory over nothing..
